Three members of Ukraine’s Party of Greens have thrown eggs at indicator panel in the hall of the parliament, the Supreme Rada.

They were sitting at the guest seats. They threw eggs after the speaker Vladimir Litvin had opened the morning session on Thursday.

The ’greens’ were holding a poster saying ’It is enough of democracy — nuclear waste are in Ukraine already.’

Litvin ordered the parliament guard to detain the disturbers. He said later the Rada would not allow building “burial grounds of nuclear waste in Ukraine.” He added this would not happen “until this Supreme Rada exists.” “It is not here where one should come and throw eggs,” Litvin was quoted by Ukrainian media as saying.

In December, Ukraine’s president Viktor Yushchenko said he was ready to make a decision on burying nuclear waste from other countries at the territory of Chernobyl power plant if experts and the society approve it.

Former prime minister, Yulia Timoshenko, said on February 20 there was a contract signed by the local Energoatom nuclear company and U.S. firm Holtec International connected with building depository of nuclear waste at the territory of Chernobyl power plant.
