We cannot forget that it was Church that provided shelter to people during the tragic events on Maidan – Bereziuk

There are often two different opinions coexisting in a society. The task of the government and politicians is to unite them looking for a compromise, not to furtherly divide the society.

This was said by the Chairman of the “Samopomich” Union faction, Oleh Bereziuk, on the sidelines of the parliament commenting on the results of consideration of the anti-discrimination amendments.

“Unfortunately, the country’s authorities are immature and mean, since instead of uniting people in the issues of rights and freedoms they have split them. Quality compromise should be sought on the basis of respect for an individual. Otherwise this is despotism,” he said.

The MP said that the state and society for many years had been suffering from despotism and split.

“I would like to remind how the Church bells called us together in the most difficult moments of our two-year history. The Church hid people from despots during the tragic events on Maidan. And today one cannot say that the church should be completely separated from the state. After all, it was not separated from the state when it was rescuing it and its citizens who believed in the Church and in the state of Ukraine,” he stressed.

It was the church which suggested a better, democratic and humanistic formulation to protect the rights and freedoms of people, but it was not taken into account.

Therefore, the members of the faction are preparing amendments to the new Labour Code which should put an end to speculative talks and finally consolidate the society.
