Yatseniuk demands Verkhovna Rada adopt government bills this year

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has stressed the importance of a number of bills tabled in the Verkhovna Rada, including budget bills. He urged the coalition to “find the courage” to approve them before the end of the year.
He said this at a meeting of the National Reform Council on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“We have submitted a number of complex laws to parliament. Some say that they are allegedly needed for the IMF. But these laws are needed for Ukraine. In the presence of the Ukrainian president, I would ask this parliamentary coalition to find the courage to do what it promised to do during the parliamentary elections. Of course, it’s necessary that by the end of this year the parliament adopt at first the laws that are the basis for the budget legislation – new tax and customs codes, the law on a single social contribution and a package [of bills] on optimizing social benefits,” he said.
He said that the government had outlined planning specific steps that should be implemented in the near future.
“They are not perfect, but it’s hard to imagine any perfect recipe that someone can come up with… This is a complex process and here we take into account only the experience of our Western partners,” Yatseniuk said.
