The Verkhovna Rada refused to include the draft law on amendments to some legislative acts concerning the provision of recovering payment of not legitimate assets to the state revenue on the agenda this week, - reports UNIAN.

Only 207 out of the 339 registered MPs (needed 226) voted for inclusion.

Narodnyi Front faction insisted on putting the draft law on the agenda.

"There are 40 billion needed to equip the Ukrainian army and the money should be returned to ensure that no official or president will not feel unpunished by stealing money," - said the MP from the NF Yuriy Bereza.

As previously reported, the Cabinet included funds that will be confiscated as part of returning assets from ex-President Viktor Yanukovych’s entourage in the draft state budget for 2017. On September 14th the Government sent to the Verkhovna Rada a draft law on the updated special confiscation, the adoption of which will allow to confiscate arrested 1.5 billion dollars in the accounts of the Sberbank belonging to members of Yanukovych's regime.
