Ukrainians leave parliamentary speakers’ conference early

Due to the changed situation in Ukraine, the whole Ukrainian delegation led by the country's Speaker of Parliament Oleksandr Morozov had to return home on Thursday, the same day that the conference for the speakers of EU parliaments began, said Jozef Plško, the spokesman for Slovak Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška's.

"Oleksandr Morozov left Slovakia with the promise that if the situation in the country calms down, their delegation will come back and take part in the remaining days of the Conference of Parliamentary Speakers of EU-member and Candidate Countries," Plško added.
