MP of Ukraine, Chairman of the Party of Regions parliamentary faction Olexander Yefremov hasn’t excluded that on Friday, November 4, the Verkhovna Rada will first consider the draft bill on decriminalization of economic.

"We do not object to consider the draft bill on decriminalization of the economic crimes on Friday," Olexander Yefremov told a briefing.

He also reminded that the law was submitted by the President of Ukraine and suggests decriminalization of economic crimes in the sphere of business. The politician added that the opposition insists on the inclusion of the Art. 365 regarding liability of high officials. "Such a step would remove responsibility from high officials who misuse public funds," the MP noted.

"Our group still holds the view that we should not support this decision," Olexander Yefremov said. At the same time he noted that the Party of Regions faction is ready to consider proposals in the context of liberalization of the legislation.

"If there are other proposals, which meet the United Nations requirements and do not limit the responsibility of high-ranked officials for abuse of funds, I do not exclude that we will support it. But if they again propose to lift the responsibility, then the support is out of the question," Yefremov stressed.
