Mayor of Kyiv Vitali Klitschko showed the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov the Rada-4 voting system developed by the IMMSP of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, which works in the Kyiv City Council and prevents button-pushing. Klitschko said: «Voting takes place only when you press two buttons at the same time and wait until the will is completed. Otherwise the vote will not be counted. Such a system makes it impossible to vote for another deputy».
According to Klitschko, since 2015, when this system was installed, the Kyiv City Council «has never had blocked rostrums, fights or conflicts». If the deputies do not agree with the vote, they simply take out the cards, and then we have to find a compromise in order to reach a quorum. The Rada-4 system also provides for the use of special consoles where you can get acquainted with the agenda of the meeting, draft decisions and make an appointment.
In February 2020 the work of the Rada-4 system in the Kyiv City Council was demonstrated to the People's Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. The parliamentarians tried to influence the work of the button and push it with a chewing gum, scotch tape, books, mobile phones, etc. The touch button managed to withstood and responded only to the touch of the voting participants.
Since March 2 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has launched a touch button in the Rada-3 voting system that was also developed at the IMMSP of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, and which makes it possible for people's deputies to vote only in person. According to the speaker of the parliament Dmitry Razumkov, at the council that took place on March 1, the touch button will also eliminate the issue of the connection of people's deputy's cards to certain places, as it excludes voting from different places. However, he points out that all this does not remove the issue of general modernization of the voting system Rada-3, which has been operating since 2008 and has outlived its usefulness. The touch button was installed in the Verkhovna Rada in 2008, but it has not worked till these days.
