“Yesterday, late in the evening Vyacheslav Opanasenko, a member of the Mykolaiv City Council representing Samopomich, was brutally and severely beaten. Today he is in an intensive care department. He had been threatened for a week, but no one paid any attention to it,” says Oleh Bereziuk, leader of the Samopomich faction in the parliament.
He continues: “Now it’s more trendy to catch prankers, than to be looking for real criminals. Today we are witnessing an obvious crisis in the law enforcement system, which acts as a destabilizing force, because instead of punishing criminals it makes them its henchmen and punishes people who fight against corruption and criminal groups that blackmail and plunder the state.”
“Samopomich Union demands the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Ministry of Internal Affairs to finally get down to work, instead of servicing political and oligarchic groups in the parliament and the state.
“It is no coincidence that the law on the anti-corruption court, which can result in punishments for those who have been robbing this country for years, is being rejected and is not considered in the parliament. Meanwhile, today this is the main requirement of our European and American partners,” concludes Oleh Bereziuk.
