Oleh Bereziuk: “The oligarchs have been deceiving the West by sneaking money into their pockets”

The laws on the Anti-Corruption Court and elections to the Verkhovna Rada on a proportional basis with open lists can change the political landscape of Ukraine to the benefit of people, not the oligarchy. The head of the Samopomich Union faction in the parliament Oleh Bereziuk is sure of this.

He is convinced that the adoption of these documents in the second reading will enable us to build a strong economy, a society that cares about its people and the army. “Only then we will become a truly free state,” the MP emphasizes.

At the same time, in his opinion, the adoption of the new Electoral Code in the first reading in November was unexpected for many, since the document is not favourable to the oligarchs who control 2/3 of the parliament. “They have everything set up and working,” explains Oleh Bereziuk. “The system of elections or buying votes from people who do not care has been drilled and improved over several decades.”

According to the lawmaker, the situation with the second reading of the law on the Anti-Corruption Court is even more complicated. He says, “The international community represented by the IMF has finally realized that for decades the oligarchy have been deceiving the Western world, taking money for the stabilization of the Ukrainian economy and sneaking it into their own pockets. It is the creation of the Anti-Corruption Court that can change the political landscape.”

Summing up, Oleh Bereziuk emphasizes that there is a chance of adopting these documents, we only need a clear position of the Ukrainians for this. Oligarchs are not the only one having influence in Ukraine. People can be very influential as well. We just need people’s and medias active involvement,” the deputy sums up.
