Only the opposition faction did not vote in parliament for the continuation of the war, anti-people budgets that take privileges from Chernobyl victims and pensions from pensioners, for laws sowing a split in society. MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Volodymyr Husak said about this on the air of the “Nash” TV channel.
“For five years we have consistently insisted on a cease-fire in the Donbas, on the implementation of the Minsk Agreements, on real decentralization and on returning control over uncontrolled territories by a political-diplomatic way. We have been also consistent opponents of the blockade of the Donbas,” Volodymyr Husak stressed.
According to the politician, the blockade of the Donbas was put into effect by the decision of the National Security and Defense Council, and to cancel it, only the decision of the National Security and Defense Council is necessary. “This does not require the decision of the Verkhovna Rada. The current composition of the Verkhovna Rada, which is living its last days and largely consists of political bankrupts, which will no longer be in the new convocation, frankly sabotage new political realities and initiatives of the President. But why the President or the National Security and Defense Council did not personally decide to lift the economic blockade of the Donbas, we don’t understand,” the MP said.
“There should be no doubt about who has been the real opposition for all these five years. I am sure that this will be reflected in the results of parliamentary elections. It is obvious that the social and economic course that was held in Ukraine by the former ruling coalition, suffered a crushing defeat,” Volodymyr Husak concluded.
