The oligarchic authorities continue their pressure on local self-government. Today, the Court of Appeal of the Kherson region left unchanged the decision of the Skadovsk District Court, which removed Oleksandr Yakovliev from the position of Skadovsk mayor for a year.
What we need to understand is the fact that any person can be destroyed because of paper clips, a pen, a pencil or any other small thing if the current authorities want so. What is even worse is that the authorities do not care if with their actions they might neglect the choice and opinion of thousands of people.
The authorities did not humiliate Oleksandr Yakovliev himself. After all, he was supported by hundreds of Skadovsk inhabitants who trust him. Because these people see what the mayor’s team has managed to do in two years.
The government has once again humiliated the state having taken yet another step towards the destruction of its foundation – local self-government.
But what prospects are there in a state full of unpunished corrupt officials who steal billions from people but still remain in power and continue their peaceful living? While honest independent people who have the courage and the will to work for the restoration of the community are suspended from their duties and preposterously charged. Very sad prospects, indeed.
