Committees round-up: Daily

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

There are  ////  bodies in focus of our committee scan today:

 

Committee on Agrarian Policy and Land Relations

A task meeting was held by the committee to solve problems related to transportation of seeds, oil-yielding crops and sugar by train. In attendance, there were numerous experts and committeemen from the related committees and agrarian associations. Parliamentarians-members of the committees discussed the main problems of logistics infrastructure. The discussants voiced out their proposals on possible ways of settling the present juncture.

Committee on Foreign Affairs

The head of the committee Hanna Hopko met Davide La Cecilia, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Italy to Ukraine. On September 4, the committee head informed the ambassador about Ukraine’s policy processes, paying special attention to an acute need to energize up our bilateral cooperation in political, economic and humanitarian realms.

In turn, the Italian ambassador clued up the Ukrainian side of a summit-level international graft-fighting conference to be held under Italy’s rule at the OSCE.

During the meeting, the sides emphasized the importance of further deepening the Ukrainian-Italian relations on the basis of a mutually beneficial cooperation and mutual interest in developing a parliamentary component of the interstate cooperation.

In this context, there was emphasized the need to hold exchange of visits of foreign affairs committeemen of both parliaments.

Committee on Industrial Policy and Entrepreneurship

The committee has been insisting upon criminalization of smuggling of round timber. This was discussed at a meeting of the committee where having failed to override the presidential veto on prohibition to export fuel-wood, the committee managed at wit’s end to extort both a heavier criminalization of smuggling of round timber and stiffer limits for home timber consumption thus guaranteeing further freezing of round timber exporting.

Committee on Human Rights, National Minorities and Interethnic Relations

The committee recommends approving in principle a draft bill No.8432 on amendments to the legislation that regulates record keeping, documentation and registration of residence of those Ukrainian citizens who live in the temporarily occupied territories of the Donetsk, Luhansk oblasts and the Crimea.

The bills No.8332 and 8332-1 on the protection of the rights of internally displaced persons were left pending.

Information was delivered by the Ministry of Justice on Ukraine’s third cycle within the framework of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC).

There was a debate on progress in preparations to parliamentary hearings on “Preventing and Combating Discrimination against Women from Vulnerable Social Groups” (scheduled for October 10, 2018).

In addition, there were ample discussion over legislative regulation of the legal status and protection of the rights of persons illegally deprived of their liberty in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.
