The Parliament may deprive defense minister of Ukraine Pavlo Lebedev of deputy powers this week, speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Volodymyr Rybak told a briefing, ForUm correspondent reports.

"I have received a statement from Pavlo Lebedev and submitted it to the relevant committee and ask to consider it as soon as possible. He can not be a deputy. And it is not a big deal," he said.

According to him, the Parliament will consider a date for parliamentary elections in five problematic districts, including the district on the results of which single-mandate deputy Lebedev won. There is a draft resolution for the elections, but we need to wait for the decision of the Constitutional Court on this issue.
