Kiev extends operation of Donbass special status law

The Verkhovna Rada has extended the operation of the law on Donbass special status for one year. Such a decision has been supported by 229 MPs while the necessary minimum is 226 votes. 

Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko submitted this document on Wednesday.  

MPs must have considered it yesterday, however the Rada postponed the discussion due to the fact the opposition blocked the tribute in a debating chamber.
