Political scam in the Kyiv City Council should be investigated by the law enforcers

The deputies of the Samopomich Union faction in the Kyiv City Council require the Main Department of the National Police, as well as the Kyiv Prosecutor’s Office to investigate the fact of gross violation of the legislation by a stranger’s voting in the hall on October 27.

The deputies reported about this at a press conference held today, November 4, 2016 in the Ukrainian crisis media center.

The deputies filed a petition to the relevant authorities about the criminal offense committed by an unknown person that voted instead of the deputy, thereby affecting adoption of several decisions.

The most striking of which was the introduction of amendments to the budget of Kyiv 2016. Because of that the city will have to pay doubtful debts in the amount of 448 million hryvnias to the monopolists PJSC “Kyivenergo” and PJSC “Kyivvodokanal”.

“Such an incredibly audacious case of manipulation in the style of the old authorities should be investigated not only by internal committees, but also by the relevant authorities with the involvement of attention of the public, whose money is to be spent,” said chairman of the “Samopomich” Union faction, Serhiy Husovskyi.

According to a Samopomich deputy of the Kyiv City Council, Vadym Vasylchuk, who noticed the fact of the offense, such acts have been committed in order to vote, by any means, for the financial amendments to the budget 2016 which are openly unjust to Kiev residents. In particular, the compensation of 448 million 300 thousand hryvnias of debt of individual public utilities service providers to Kyivenergo and Kyivvodokanal. Thus, Kyivans will pay for utilities twice in fact – when they actually paid for them and now, when the city is settling the doubtful debts of individual utilities.

“On the one hand, the Kyiv City Council has demonstrated its legal ignorance, on the other hand – the financial helplessness. While from a political point of view, it showed its absolute irresponsibility towards the people of Kyiv,” said a deputy representing the Samopomich Union in the City Council, Andriy Osadchuk.

Kyiv Samopomich will bend every effort to punish in accordance with the applicable law those who have committed the offense and those who condoned it.
