Verkhovna Rada speaker Volodymyr Rybak says that opposition forged 18 signatures for the convening of the Parliament’s extraordinary session.

"Yes, I was given 158 signatures. However, the Parliament’s office of personnel had informed me that seven signatures were forged. After all, every member signed the oath, so the samples of all signatures are in the Office, they can be always checked," Rybak said in interview.

He also doubts that the opposition wanted to hold the extraordinary session.

"The vote for decriminalization (the articles under which Tymoshenko was sentenced - Ed.) in late December clearly shows their real need in this extraordinary session. Even eight representatives of the majority supported the bill, while three dozen of opposition MPs did not vote," the speaker summed up.
