UKRAINE-PARLIAMENT-OPPOSITION

A Ukrainian opposition deputy rubs his eye on February 7, 2013 in front of a placard showing a severed hand in the parliament as opposition lawmakers block the parliament for a third day to prevent the session from opening in Kiev. The dispute in Ukraine's one-chamber parliament, known as the Verkhovna Rada, centers on opposition demands for each deputy to vote individually. Voting in the Ukrainian legislature is done electronically and lawmakers can delegate the right to vote to their colleagues. The opposition and critical media have repeatedly accused pro-government deputies of frequently missing parliamentary sessions and asking colleagues to vote on their behalf.
