Speaker of the parliament Volodymyr Lytvyn stands for formation of an interdepartmental state commission, engaged into Chernobyl issues.

The speaker met with representatives of public Chernobyl organizations, arrived in Kyiv from different regions of Ukraine, and discussed the situation on the draft bill on social benefits for Chernobyl disaster liquidators and Afghan soldiers.

According to Lytvyn, it is necessary to analyze the applicable laws on social security of liquidators, survivors, and residents of the polluted territories. He added that other problems connected with the Chernobyl issue, including delimitation of territories and validity of privilege, require extra consideration.

Lytvyn assured the Chernobyl disaster survivors that the bill would not be considered until the government and representatives of public Chernobyl organizations reached a compromise on key points. "The negotiations shall be transparent and involve the people representing interests of disaster survivors," he said. Lytvyn also promised to inform the President of Ukraine and the government members about their stand at the extended sitting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on Wednesday.

"Having analyzed the current legislation, probably we should work out a Chernobyl Code," Lytvyn suggested.
