Speaker Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmitry Razumkov commented on rumors about his conflict with the president Vladimir Zelenskiy , reports Gordonua.com.
“I don’t understand what kind of conflict you are talking about. If you are talking about the situation with the Constitutional Court, I think that everyone has taken a state position,” Razumkov said.
The Head of the Rada added that the last time he spoke with Zelensky was last week. He described their relationship as “absolutely normal” working.
As the newspaper notes, Zelensky and Razumkov prepared various bills in connection with the conflict around the Constitutional Court.
At the end of October, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine (CCU) canceled some of the provisions of anti-corruption laws and ruled that the introduction of criminal liability for the declaration of deliberately false data and deliberate failure to submit declarations is an excessive punishment. This caused a political crisis.
The National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption (NAPC) closed access to the register of electronic declarations and ceased their verification, storage and publication.
Zelensky submitted to the Rada a bill on the recognition of the unlawful decision of the Constitutional Court. The head of state also demanded to deprive the judges of their powers. The head of the KSU Alexander Tupitsky said that the bill contains signs of a constitutional coup. The document was also criticized in Council of Europe .
In mid-December, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law to restore the powers of the NAPK. Razumkov was one of its authors.
