People's Deputy Aleksandr Dubinskyi has demanded that Daniil Getmantsev, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada's Finance Committee, strictly comply with the requirements of the regulations on the introduction of bill No. 4204 "On restructuring obligations for loans in foreign currency and amending some legislative acts regulating foreclosure on the mortgaged property."
The document is socially significant and very important for foreign currency borrowers. However, its consideration is being delayed for unknown reasons.
Bill No. 4204 was registered in parliament on October 9, 2020, and submitted to the Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy on October 13. The document may already be submitted for consideration in the session hall. However, it has not happened.
All stages of passing bills are distinctly outlined in the Rules of Procedure of the Verkhovna Rada. According to Art. 93, each draft law within five days after registration is submitted to the appropriate committee, as well as to the budget committee and the committee that is responsible for anti-corruption policy, in order to obtain the appropriate expert opinion.
After that, the main committee prepares a conclusion on its inclusion in the agenda of the Verkhovna Rada within 30 days and sends it for scientific expertise.
Dubinskyi has submitted an official appeal to the Chairman of the Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy Daniil Getmantsev, so that he would promptly include bill No. 4204 on the agenda of the Verkhovna Rada and send it for scientific examination to the Main Scientific and Expert Directorate of the Verkhovna Rada.
At the same time, Dubinskyi emphasized the special social significance of this document during the COVID-19 pandemic and warned of the tension that now exists in society on the issue of loan restructuring. Delaying consideration of this bill may lead to unforeseen consequences. Considering that already in four months - in April 2021 - the moratorium established by the Law "On the moratorium on the collection of the property of Ukrainian citizens provided as collateral for loans in foreign currency" expires.
