Several dozen people hold a rally near the Verkhovna Rada with a request to allow internally displaced persons to vote in local elections, OstroV’s correspondent reports.
They brought posters and picket signs saying "Everyone has the right to choose", "IDPs = citizens = voters".
Activists are urging people's deputies to consider and adopt bill No. 6240, which will allow internally displaced persons to exercise their voting rights.
The bill was registered in the parliament about a year ago, but has not yet been considered.
