Oleh Bereziuk: By its hard day-to-day work the Parliament has to demonstrate that the country has the authorities

As noted by the head of the Samopomich Union faction, Oleh Bereziuk, today in the Verkhovna Rada, unfortunately, there is a battle for the influence on the political situation.

“This is very harmful and dangerous – deputies are calling each other “Kremlin agents”. The damage and the problem is that in such a way a very serious threat is overlooked. Because, in fact, there are Kremlin agents in the government and the Parliament. And there is a fifth column and it is actively working,” says Oleh Bereziuk.

At the same time the talk about early parliamentary elections in Ukraine is a pure desire of imperial Russia. After all, during any elections, even in the most democratic countries of the world, there is a period of instability.

“Those who are talking about elections today are the short-sighted people blindly seeking power or those working for the ones striving to destroy the Ukrainian institutional state. Another period of instability may be fatal for this state. Therefore, for the following 6, 9, 12 months we need to be working hard day-by-day without resorting to the election rhetoric.

Despite the fact that I am personally terribly dissatisfied with the current authorities, I realize I must work very hard now in order to create the circumstances which will make the authorities better. We need elections, but not under the current electoral system.

These “elections” will result in, with a few exceptions, the same henchmen of oligarchs coming to power. As paradoxical as it may sound, a safeguard against early elections is a new electoral law. Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada should be elected on a proportional basis by open lists.

Recognition of the occupied territories as occupied, investigation and punishment of the illegally earned fortunes, of which we have learned from the e-declarations, is the key to the country’s success,” says MP.
