Details: The registration video shows how the people's deputy Vadim Novinsky pushes a button in its place, and after that pushes a button on the remote control of colleague Musa Magomedov. The latter subsequently approaches the place, however, on the “Rada” system voting scoreboard it is clear that the “for” button on the Magomedov’s remote control has already been pressed.
In turn, the people's deputy Dmitry Shpenov registered himself and the colleague Dmitry Shentsev, who was absent at that moment.
Both buttons are members of the Opposition Bloc party, which lost the previous elections to the Verkhovna Rada. They were selected in majoritarian districts and are non-factional.
What happened before: January 13, President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky signed a law that introduces fines for MPs for non-personal voting. Such an act will be punishable by a fine of 3 thousand to 5 thousand tax-free minimum incomes of citizens (now 51-85 thousand hryvnia). "
Earlier Zelensky said that for button-press in the Parliament they will be deprived of mandates.
In particular, in August 2019 Zelensky submitted to the Verkhovna Rada a draft law on amending Article 81 of the Constitution, which states the possibility of depriving the mandates of people's deputies in the event of non-personal voting.
