Oleh Bereziuk: “Pro-Russian forces are taking revenge because of the inaction and impunity of the current government”

According to the head of the Samopomich faction in the Verkhovna Rada, Oleh Bereziuk, the situation that has developed in Ukraine can be characterized in three sentences. He specifies, “This is the impoverishment of people, the corrupted government that is using the security apparatus to fight with those who fight corruption, and as a result – the revenge of pro-Russian and Russian forces inside our country.”

“The President of Ukraine and other officials have once again started talking about the abolition of the Agreement on Friendship with Russia. This should have been done a long time ago. But what do we actually have? As a matter of fact, Russian and pro-Russian agents are almost completely controlling the country’s media. Why is it so? This is due to the inaction of the law enforcement bodies in Ukraine under the leadership of the President and the government and, as a result, due to impunity.”

According to Oleh Bereziuk, because of such a policy of connivance in relation to the neighbor country Ukrainian gas sources are being bought up by pro-Russian companies and oligarchs, and while the Sea of Azov is practically controlled by the enemy, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine does not even intend to appeal to the international community in order to arrest Russian ships in international ports. “Inactivity and impunity will result in the revenge of the pro-Russian and Russian forces in Ukraine,” Oleh Bereziuk describes the current situation.

He continues, “What are Ukrainian politicians doing meanwhile? They are talking to us today from their expensive billboards and expensive videos. Do you know what their political strategists call it? The selling of hope. They have sold us their faith and love, now there is only hope left.”

At the same time, the government is failing to fulfill the state budget and is trying to patch the budget hole with the money of local budgets. “Don’t we know that the money for the rent of non-ore quarries was returned to the central budget, while villages and cities did not receive anything from this? This is pure robbery! Don’t we know that Ukrzaliznytsia and Ukrnafta got the right to preferential land rent price? As if these two were poor enterprises! 75% reduced price! Local budgets are losing this money. Schools are being closed for the sake of the budget optimization. It is a crime”.

Therefore, concludes the MP, the main tasks of the ninth session of the parliament, which begins this week, are to ensure security and to adopt a balanced budget for 2019. “Budget means security. Oleh Bereziuk concludes, “Therefore, we need to deal with the issue of customs, of the tax on withdrawn capital. Why are they delayed? It is true that the President is talking about them. But he should have shown real actions over the last five years. And there is also the Electoral Code. This is the number 1 matter, because it is through the elections that those who are having their revenge today can come to power and then the country will be given into slavery to the eternal enemy.”
