Absolutely all appointments in Ukraine are accepted in agreeing of the US Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch. This was stated by the head of the OPPOSITION BLOC faction Vadym Novynskyi in the corridors of the Verkhovna Rada.
As an example, the politician recalled the decision of the Ecumenical Patriarch, which was first supported by representatives of the US State Department. “The US Ambassador on Religious Affairs specially flew to President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. As soon as the decision on Tomos was made, the State Secretary Michael Pompeo was the first to congratulate him. This is not a coincidence – in Ukraine, everything is being done under the supervision of the US State Department,” the oppositionist said.
As for the sanctions lists published on the website of the President of Ukraine according to the previously adopted decision of the National Security Council, this, according to the oppositionist, is connected exclusively with the electoral technologies of the President Petro Poroshenko. “By such actions, he hopes to get a chance to be re-elected for a second term, specifically increasing tension in society and demonstrating his pseudo-struggle with Russia,” the politician is sure.
“The Ministry of Internal Affairs has already received a lot of information about the facts of falsification and violation of the electoral legislation and, first of all, complaints against representatives of the party “Petro Poroshenko Bloc”. If the authorities change, these criminal cases will be brought to court. And those who take part in these illegal actions will be punished,” the head of the OPPOSITION BLOC warned members of election commissions.Commenting on the draft law on language No. 5670-d, which has been being discussed ineffectively for the second week in the half-empty session hall, Vadym Novynskyi stressed, “This law contradicts the Constitution of Ukraine. It discriminates against other languages. In fact, this document is about discrimination and even the prohibition of Russian and other languages of national minorities.” According to the oppositionist, the development of Ukrainian language should not be to the detriment of other languages. Not surprisingly, MPs submitted more than 2,000 amendments to this very controversial draft law. Only the OPPOSITION BLOC faction filed more than 700 edits, due to violation of the law on the Regulations of the Verkhovna Rada, it is not possible to adopt them.
