MP from OPPOSITION BLOC Tetiana Bakhteeva said this during her meeting with journalists in the corridors of the Verkhovna Rada on Friday, November 10.
She commented on the draft Resolution on the abolition of voting for the so-called "medical reform" (Draft Law No. 6327).
"Considering that there were practically no deputies in the hall, my colleague Ihor Shurma demanded that a control vote be held first. So often does the Speaker of the Parliament Parubiy, besides, he sometimes puts draft laws on 10 times to vote, which is a violation of the Rules. Because of the lack of deputies, the draft Resolution on the abolition of voting for the so-called "medical reform" won only 45 votes," the parliamentarian noted.
The politician stressed that a serious situation has developed in the health sector. "Today in Ukraine, a severe demographic crisis – the death rate is twice the birth rate. Cardiovascular diseases, tuberculosis, and oncology became much more frequent and aggravated. The same applies to a number of serious infectious diseases, such as measles, poliomyelitis, botulism. For 25 years of Ukraine’s independence, they were not even in the register," Tetiana Bakhteyeva said.
"This indicates that the whole team of the Ministry of Health is not professional. And in general, an Acting Minister has two citizenships," the oppositionist stressed.
According to her, the so-called "medical reform" is genocide of the Ukrainian people, it is anti-constitutional and anti-people. "Sooner or later, and the medical community very much hopes for it, after the change of power it will be canceled and a real medical reform will be held, which will provide high-quality, full-fledged and timely medical care to every Ukrainian," the MP stressed.
"The government’s "medical reform" violates the Constitution, so the OPPOSITION BLOC prepares a submission to the Constitutional Court that it be abolished," Tetiana Bakhteeva summarized.
