The Verkhovna Rada is in plenary session as of 11:00 this morning.
After many hours of early morning negotiations, the five parliamentary
factions agreed that Party of Regions stops their blockade of the
Parliament. They have signed an agreement on principles of cooperation
between the coalition and the opposition in Parliament. Some major
points of this agreement are listed below:
 Election of VR Chairman, First Deputy VR Chairman, and Deputy
VR Chairman will be held according to the closed vote procedure. The
opposition will have the position of the Deputy VR Chairman who is
in charge of oversight function of the parliament.
 Leadership positions in committees will be divided proportionally
according to the per cent of the vote each parliamentary party received
in the last election. Faction representatives agreed to establish 30
parliamentary committees, with opposition chairing 15 committees, and
the majority chairing 15.
 All (including VR portion) appointees for positions of Constitutional
Court Justices will have taken an oath by July 24.
 Rights of the opposition will be established in the Rules of
Parliamentary Procedure and other legislative acts.

SPAM BLOCKERS ARE A REAL PROBLEM
If you do not receive a copy of the AUR it is probably because of a
SPAM BLOCKER maintained by your server or by yourself on your

and block out e-mails because of words found in many news stories.
Spam blockers also sometimes reject the AUR for other arbitrary reasons
we have not been able to identify. If you do not receive some of the AUR

make sure the spam blocker used by your server and also the one on your
