"We are expecting the Parliament to introduce the new indemnity mechanism by 300 votes and thereby abolish the full immunity of MPs as well as the judiciary," Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk at a meeting of the Constitutional Commission on Monday, April 6.

He reminded that the Parliament of Ukraine had already submitted a corresponding act to the Constitutional Court.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk also recalled that the current Constitution, according to the findings of international experts, was exemplary in terms of the main provisions concerning the rights and freedoms of man and citizen, "Now it is necessary to provide exemplary implementation of everything written in the current Constitution of Ukraine, as well as in a new Constitution of Ukraine, which must be approved by the people of Ukraine."

"This will be a document that will determine which country Ukraine will be in the future. Ukraine will be a successful model of European democracy," the Prime Minister said.
