Members of the Congress of Local Councils refrain from talking about the state of emergency
The Congress of Local Councils of all levels in Kharkov will not raise questions about the state of emergency in Ukraine.
According to some media, the congress members planned to appeal to President Viktor Yanukovych with a request to announce a state of emergency. “That's a lie, another provocation. Every day for the past two months, I am asked about this, I think, by those who seem to want it to happen. We do not want it,” said Sergey Chernov, the chair of the Kharkov Regional Council.
According to him, the meeting will address the political situation in the country, reform of local government and a declaration on the 2014 State Budget.
Today, on January 22, Council of the National Congress of Local Governments starts in Kharkov.
