In the second reading, the Verkhovna Rada also supported the bill on the abolition of the immunity of MPs. This decision was supported by 373 deputies.

The law removed from the 80 articles of the Constitution two paragraphs stating that deputies are guaranteed immunity and without the consent of the Verkhovna Rada they cannot be held criminally responsible.

The parliamentary immunity will be abolished from January 1, 2020.
