A break for an hour was announced in the work of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

According to UNIAN, Speaker Arseniy Yatseniuk invited factions leaders to consultations.

He noted that lawmakers were handed today's agenda, which "had been agreed and voted". "However, to solve the order of voting on the issues, I invite factions leaders to my cabinet", the Speaker said.

The BYuT faction once again blocked the parliament's rostrum and presidium at 10.00 a.m. Tuesday.

Draft laws on overcoming consequences of the world economic crisis, carrying out the snap poll and its financing, were put on the parliament's agenda last week.
