The governmental draft State Budget for the next year leads to the construction of a police state with a poor population, so the OPPOSITION BLOC faction will not support it. This was said by the leader of the OPPOSITION BLOC Yuriy Boyko during a meeting with journalists in the corridors of the Verkhovna Rada on Wednesday, December 6.
He stressed that the OPPOSITION BLOC would not vote for the governmental draft State Budget – 2018. “We do not support the draft budget in the form, proposed by the government. This is a typical construction of a police state with a poor population. To increase the financing of the law enforcement agencies, which once again demonstrated complete helplessness, and to reduce social payments - this is absolutely unacceptable. We will never vote for such a draft budget, "the opposition leader said.
“Even before the first reading, the OPPOSITION BLOC faction provided its version of the State Budget-2018. This is really a budget for people, not for officials, proposed for voting by the government,” Yuriy Boyko emphasized.
The politician also stressed the need for a decision to ban the sale of land. “We must vote for a ban on the sale of land. People are waiting for stability in this matter, because they understand that large holdings can buy up land and raise farmers from it,” the Co-Chairman of the opposition parliamentary faction said.
