Inna Svystun, “Samopomich Union” faction leader in Lviv regional council. “We do acknowledge the fact that this situation concerns our faction’s deputy, Lviv Ivan Franko University lecturer, Andriy Prokopiv.
We have called an emergency meeting of the “Samopomich” faction, where we will decide on his expulsion from the faction. Besides, the deputy himself has assured us that he will write a letter of resignation to hand over his mandate. We count on thoroughness and professionalism of law enforcement agencies in the course of further investigation. For us reputation of the members of the faction is an absolute value, and such actions are incompatible with the activities of a deputy. We will not cover anybody.”
