Oleh Bereziuk: People must keep the authorities in awe

Today, at a special session of the Parliament, which took place at the initiative of the “Samopomich” Union faction, MPs fired nearly three dozen of judges for their violating the oath.
Some decisions were put to vote several times because they couldn’t receive the necessary number of votes at the first attempt. In general, the session, at which the issues of 33 judges were addressed, lasted for almost 5 hours.
“The fact that in the end the judges were dismissed is an important signal that the Parliament of the eighth convocation can make democratic and necessary for the country decisions,” said MP of the “Samopomich Union” faction, Oleh Bereziuk.
“Today was a crucial day. There was an epic battle between the people who are pretending to be the fighters for freedom of Ukraine, but are in fact robbing the country, and those who are defending the public interest.
The most touching was the fact that during the voting we received calls from the families of those killed at Maidan. They said, “Hold on, we are listening to what is going on in the Parliament on the radio.” And so today, despite the fact that this Parliament comprises two-thirds of the people who are dependent on the oligarchs, it managed to make such a moral action, or at least part of it. Although at first it seemed like the voting would fail,” said the lawmaker.
According to him, this is the fear of people that made the deputies support the dismissal of the judges.
“Unfortunately, these authorities are still not governed by the respect for people, they are governed by the fear, and it is good that there is this fear at least. Thus people need to keep these authorities in awe,” sums up Oleh Bereziuk.
