Olha Khonich expelled from the Samopomich Union party

The Executive Committee of the Samopomich Union political party decided to expel Olha Khonich from the party members and to strike her off the list of the Chernihiv city organization of the party in connection with the actions that contradict the declared position of Samopomich.

According to media reports, Olha Khonich, being a deputy mayor of Chernihiv, signed a presentation for the awarding of Vladyslav Atroshenko with the Order of Merit.

We shall recall that Vladyslav Atroshenko, being a people’s deputy from the Party of Regions, voted for the so-called “dictatorial laws” dated January 16, 2014.

Therefore, the Control Commission considers Olha Khonich’s actions as such that cause reputational losses for the Samopomich party and undermine the trust in the party in Chernihiv region.
