When electing their president Ukrainians have always been forced to choose between the evil and lesser evil, preferring the latter. However, the Vice Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Oksana Syroyid is convinced that this year we are choosing between the lesser evil and the real good.
The choice of Ukrainians will determine whether or not we will finally destroy the oligarchic order established over the decades, aimed at enriching six to seven people at the expense of all of us, whether or not the populist minions of the oligarchs who can only make promises but are incapable of anything useful for the country will come to power for another five years.
Oksana Syroyid notes, “If you look at those participating in the presidential race, most of them are backed by the same oligarchs, and most of them have already had the opportunity to show themselves in power.” We are talking about Petro Poroshenko and Yulia Tymoshenko, among others, as well. They have promised a lot to ordinary citizens, but in reality, they have always worked for oligarchic monopolies.
The Vice Speaker states, “Today we have a unique chance. Today we have a real candidate, Andriy Sadovyi, who is not connected with the oligarchs, who can easily move the country in another direction and let people become richer. This is a turning point. Instead of making endless promises Andriy Sadovyi has just shown how he can govern the city in the interests of people.”
Oksana Syroyid emphasizes that the mayor of Lviv has a clear plan of how to implement the reforms that Ukraine needs. This plan provides for the destruction of oligarchic monopolies, the improvement of the state’s defence capability and the formation of people’s desire and ability to work for the state.
“These are the pillars of Andriy Sadovyi’s election program,” notes the Vice Speaker. “As the city mayor, he has been doing his best since the beginning of the war to provide support to the soldiers. There is no doubt that Andriy Sadovyi is the only one who can oppose oligarchic monopolies today. He is the only so far registered candidate who is independent of this oligarchic system. He has proved with his work as mayor that he does not abuse power for the sake of enrichment and knows how to work for people. Another significant component of his program is education, enlightenment, stimulation of innovations in order to teach young people so that young people would want to live and work in this country.”
“This is an honest, good alternative,” concludes Oksana Syroyid. “We finally have the chance to choose not a lesser evil, but the greater good.”
