The Chairman of the OPPOSITION BLOC parliamentary faction Vadym Novynskyi called on the Verkhovna Rada to stop imitation of stormy activities, and solve acute social problems. Vadym Novynskyi recalled that the OPPOSITION BLOC faction had registered many draft law and decrees, containing mechanisms for solving economic and social problems.
The head of the faction urged the parliament to adopt in the second reading the Electoral Code on holding parliamentary elections in a new and more transparent manners. “In addition, it is necessary to adopt legislation on the regulation of utility tariffs for the population. It is also necessary to pass the laws necessary for the implementation of the Minsk agreements,” noted Vadym Novynskyi, speaking from the rostrum of the parliament on Tuesday, April 9.
According to the oppositionist, these issues are relevant for the majority of Ukrainians, rather than the language law. Nevertheless, the parliament persists in consideration of precisely the discriminatory language law.
According to Vadym Novynskyi, this indicates that Poroshenko’s supporters did not understand why in the March 31 elections only 16% of Ukrainians supported the course of the current head of state.
“Elections have resulted in sentences by the system. Language, Church, history are just a screen, by means of which Poroshenko covered his own inaction and the corruption of his environment. It’s easier to talk about a European future than to be responsible for a beggarly modernity,” the head of the OPPOSITION BLOC faction noted.
According to him, the policy of Petro Poroshenko has failed and today only a miracle can save the ratings of the president. At the same time, within the walls of parliament, imitation of violent political activity continues instead of solving acute problems.
“All these policy games would be possible if the issues submitted for consideration by the Verkhovna Rada do not split the society. The language law, the work on the examination of which continues today, and attempts to interfere in church life, and the imposition of the concept of history on citizens lead to the division of society into “right” and “wrong”. And the first round of elections has become a real signal: it is already enough such experiments with our consciousness,” the oppositionist noted.
Vadym Novynskyi urged parliament to return to consideration of issues of concern to society, rather than the campaign office of Poroshenko. “Today, the Verkhovna Rada should take care of the people, rather than the bankrupt politician, who is trying by all means to keep the presidency – including by splitting the society according to linguistic and confessional signs,” Vadym Novynskyi concluded.
