“I am joining Oleh Bereziuk. I’ll starve to try to protect people” – Oksana Syroyid

During her speech in the Verkhovna Rada, Vice Speaker Oksana Syroyid said she would join the chairman of the Samopomich faction Oleh Bereziuk and would also go on a hunger strike.

“I want to appeal to the President, the Prime Minister, the coalition deputies, to those who are depreciating the deed of Oleh Bereziuk. You are depreciating it because it is difficult for you to appreciate the act of dignity, since you lack your own dignity. You are depreciating it because of fear and helplessness. You know you are lying, but you cannot admit it to people.

You’ve been lying since the moment you promise you would live in a different way, while in fact you just became in charge of the old corrupt schemes. You lied when you promised to change the election law, which allowed Yanukovych to concentrate power in his hands, since this law is now serving your interests.

You’ve been lying for 25 years. You lied when you promised to limit the deputies’ immunity. You promised to investigate the crimes against Maidan, but you are afraid of getting hands on you yourself. You promised a blind trust, while your declarations have been an eye-opener for the people.

The reforms that you promise to implement are the cover for yet new illegal schemes of wealth redistribution. You steal from the defence budget of the people who are at war, and your corrupt “UkroboronPORN” is notorious all over the world. You sold the Constitution when you were offered a special status in exchange for additional powers for the President. Today you intend to discuss the de-occupation of Ukrainian territory with the occupier. Perhaps this is a new trend in the strategy of warfare? I wonder what kind of factory you will sell the state for this time.

Lviv is just an example of resistance to this lie and your despotism, just one small example. I want to support Oleh Bereziuk today. I will join him, I will be with him, I will starve. In order to try to protect people from your tyranny. This is my act and my choice as a person.

I advise Lviv residents to unite their efforts and appeal to the President with a demand to dismiss the head of the regional administration, who carried out and issued criminal orders humiliating the dignity of the people of Lviv. And their choice regarding the President, the coalition and the government Ukrainians will make during the next elections,” Oksana Syroyid noted during her speech.
