Statement of the OPPOSITION BLOC
The decision of the Verkhovna Rada’s Standing Committee on the removal of parliamentary immunity, the detention and arrest of the opposition MP Yevhen Bakulin, is a continuation of the power’s launched repression of the only real opposition in Ukraine - the OPPOSITION BLOC.
No guilt of Yevhen Bakulin exists. This does not stop the prosecutors; they “sew” against him a case that does not have any grounds.
The power is a political bankrupt; the ratings of distrust to it have beaten all anti records. All it is able to do is to talk about non-existent “helpers”, imitating reforms and fighting corruption, and adherence to democracy.
By attacks on the opposition, the authorities are trying to divert the attention of Ukrainians from their own failures: war, economic collapse, poverty, devastation and own corruption.
This method does not work anymore. People are tired of endless shows and absolutely do not believe the power.
We will continue to fight against the illegal persecution of our fellow party members. The case against Yevhen Bakulin will fall apart like other fake cases against representatives of the OPPOSITION BLOC.
After the change of the current power, law enforcement will be engaged in the fulfillment of their direct duties - the capture of real criminals, and not a political investigation. Ukraine will become a legal democratic state.
