Chief of Zelensky's office proposes setting up parliamentary commission to monitor use of weapons supplied by allies

MOSCOW. July 14 (Interfax) - Andriy Yermak, chief of the Ukrainian presidential office, has proposed setting up a parliamentary commission to monitor the use of weapons being supplied to Ukraine by its allies.

"I'd like to propose that the people's deputies [parliamentarians] consider an important idea, namely, the establishment of an ad hoc commission that would prepare and review issues related to the monitoring of the use of weapons that we receive from our partners," Ukrainian media quoted Yermak as saying in a social media post on Thursday.

"As the legislative body, the parliament should be engaged in monitoring the defense assistance coming from our allies. Our goal is utmost transparency, as far as it's possible amid martial law," Yermak said.
