That this House notes with alarm that 94 miners at the state-owned uranium mine lngulska, in the Kirovohrad region of Ukraine, are facing court proceedings; is concerned that this response to a reasonable protest over months of underpaid wages is aimed at intimidating members of the Independent Trade Union of Miners of Ukraine (NPGU); further notes with concern that the court judge in their collusive conduct with the mine management has violated the Civil Procedural Code of Ukraine; and calls for the cancellation of the next court hearing on 18 January 2018, immediate and unconditional termination of the proceedings against the miners, payment of all wages owed and meaningful negotiations with NPGU.
