  1. Number of Government members.

Over and over again, the provision of part one, Article 230 of the Verkhovna Rada Rules of Procedure was violated, namely, the chair failed to announce the names of Government members not attending the parliamentary meeting; moreover, no explanation of the reasons for their absence was given, contrary to the requirement of the said provision of the Rules of Procedure. However, one can clearly conclude from the answers to MPs’ questions that the meeting was not attended by the Ministers of Defense and of Foreign Affairs.
