Special status extension shows #Ukraine 🇺🇦 taking tough steps for peace. Hope #Russia 🇷🇺now acts to make peace - time to end conflict.To protest against the adoption of the Donbas de-occupation bill, some MPs were involved in firing a smoke candle in the sessions hall of the parliament. This was done during the discussion of the bill #7164 "On creation of necessary conditions for peace settlement of the situation in separate areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions." Later, Svoboda member Yurii Levchenko said he was the one who set the candle on fire.
