The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's Parliament, is considering holding future meetings at an open venue, like a stadium or a large concert hall, says MP with the leading Servant of the People faction, Yevhenia Kravchuk.

She specified that it wasn’t about the next Parliament meeting set to be held March 28, hromadske reports.

According to Kravchuk, on Saturday, if there is a meeting, it will be held at Parliament premises, but with additional protection involved – face masks, goggles, and gloves.

The deputy also reminded that in order to move the session to another location, a procedural decision must be passed.

Sessions and voting via video link are less likely to be considered as the Constitutional Court earlier ruled that members of parliament shall physically attend Rada meetings.
