On March 20, the head of the OPPOSITION BLOC faction, Vadym Novynskyi, answering the questions of a journalist of the TV channel “Nash”, assessed the current engagement of the ruling coalition.
Commenting on the parliament’s consideration of the draft law on language No. 5670-d, Vadym Novynskyi stressed that the document itself was written out very contradictory and required many amendments. It is therefore not surprising that the deputies filed more than two thousand amendments to it. “The opinion of the OPPOSITION BLOC faction is also unchanged. We consider the draft law on language anti-Ukrainian and we will vote against it. Our faction filed more than 700 amendments, and all of them are not taken into account,” the politician stated.
The oppositionist noted that according to the law on Regulations of the Verkhovna Rada all amendments must be considered and voted. “It’s a shame that consideration of the most important financial document for the country – the Law on the State Budget – is not given the same time as the draft law on language. The budget of Ukraine is adopted by deputies in a hurry and overnight,” the head of the OPPOSITION BLOC faction stressed.
As for the resonance around the corruption scandal in “Ukroboronprom”, Vadym Novynskyi is sure that under the current authorities there is simply no one to honestly investigate it. “In its present form and composition, the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Security Service of Ukraine are not able to thoroughly, honestly and openly investigate this process. The society will receive truthful answers only after fair elections, when President Poroshenko leaves,” the MP emphasized.According to Vadym Novynskyi, only the coalition has the possibility of falsifying election results, which is assisted by law enforcement agencies: the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Security Service of Ukraine, the Prosecutor General’s Office. “These elections, apparently, will be the dirtiest in the entire history of Ukraine. President Petro Poroshenko has long lost the confidence of the Ukrainians. He will not be able to run for a second term in a legitimate way. He can win only with the help of falsifications and vote-buying, which, unfortunately, we already see,” the oppositionist stated.
