Sadovyi: “Crimes must entail punishment, not just lustration”

According to the leader of Samopomich, Andriy Sadovyi, today there are attempts to replace justice with lustration. Meanwhile, it is necessary to establish justice in Ukraine, in the first place, and only then discuss possible changes to the law on the purification of power.

“Over the past 5 years, we have seen hundreds of revealing journalistic investigations, but I don’t remember a single case of any of the top officials being punished. They have stolen millions, have been plundering the defence budget. Has anybody been punished? No!” the politician emphasized this on the air of “Right to Power” talk show.

We shall recall Sadovyi’s words about a very important thing the law on lustration did – “It did not let those criminals who worked with Yanukovych to continue to be in power.”

“Still, these people must be punished. Just as those who have been engaged in the robbery of our country, through “Ukroboronprom” and other structures, among other things,” stresses Sadovyi.
