Ukrainian deputy, Stepan Gavrish, stated that he was absolutely certain in the fact that the Ukrainian parliament would approve the need of the political reform in the country. That is why, Gavrish said, he decided to have a bet on a train car of cognac with another politician, whose name has not been exposed to the public.
Stepan Gavrish won the bet: he is currently looking into the matter of regulating the question about receiving the prize from his unlucky colleague.
"If I do not get my cognac, everyone will know this person's name. If I succeed, I will be ready to share the prize with journalists," the deputy said.
