Ukraine parliament supports anti-crisis law required for IMF bailout

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine’s parliament on Thursday voted in favour of an anti-crisis law accepting austerity measures demanded by the International Monetary Fund as part of a $14-18 billion bailout package.

Earlier, parliament deputies failed to support the draft law despite the entreaties of the government, but later returned after a recess and approved it with a vote of 246 - 20 more than the number required.
