The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has rejected the draft resolution submitted by President Volodymyr Zelensky on the dismissal of Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin for the second time.
At a parliament meeting on July 11, 2019, 160 MPs voted for the resolution with the minimum required 226 votes, a Ukrinform correspondent reports.
The first vote that failed was held on June 6, 2019.
