The parliament withheld payments to 73 members of the parliament for the performance of their parliamentary duties in August.

The parliamentary administration announced this in a statement in response to an information request from the Ukrainian News Agency.

Several parliamentarians were paid UAH 45,400 each in August for the performance of their parliamentary duties in July.

The parliament did not pay the following parliamentarians for the performance of their parliamentary duties: the Servant of the People parliamentary faction’s leader David Arakhamia, the Opposition Platform – For Life parliamentary faction’s co-leaders Vadym Rabinovych and Yurii Boiko, the Batkivschyna All-Ukrainian Association faction’s leader Yuliya Tymoshenko, the For the Future parliamentary group’s co-leader Viktor Bondar, the For the Future party’s leader Ihor Palitsa, and the European Solidarity party’s leader Petro Poroshenko.

According to the legislation, a parliamentarian will not be reimbursed for expenses related to the performance of his parliamentary duties in a calendar month if the parliamentarian fails to participate in more than 30% of the votes in the parliament’s plenary sessions or more than 50% of the meetings of the parliamentary committee to which he was elected during that calendar month.
