After a three-week break, the Verkhovna Rada convened for its 100th session since the beginning of full-scale war, opposition Holos party MP Yaroslav Zheleznyak said on Telegram on March 14.

The parliament’s agenda currently includes the ratification of international agreements and an appeal to condemn Russia’s sham elections in temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories, the LIGA.net news outlet reported, citing an anonymous source in the Holos party.

The agenda was initially slated to be longer than the current version but largely remains the same.

The Parliament also plans to consider an appeal to international institutions to ensure the release and return to Ukraine of captured and illegally detained journalists.

Agreements to be considered for ratification include:

  • Digital trade between Ukraine and the United Kingdom

  • Technical and financial cooperation between the Governments of Ukraine and Latvia

  • Donation of non-refundable funds by the Government of Slovenia for humanitarian assistance in mine clearance.

Previously, the Verkhovna Rada canceled three sessions. According to MP Irina Herashchenko from the European Solidarity party, the reason for the cancellation was allegedly the need to "formulate a report for the US Congress".
