This was stated by the Co-chairman of the OPPOSITION BLOC faction Yuriy Boyko, answering journalists’ questions in the corridors of the Verkhovna Rada.
“I once again want to express the position of our faction: we still expect the conclusion of the Constitutional Court that it is necessary to remove immunity from the president, parliamentarians, judges and stop these theatrical shows that we occasionally watch in the session hall. We did not vote for any of the MPs, as well as Ms. Savchenko, because we have a position – it is necessary remove the immunity from everyone. However, the first example should be set by the president, because society wants it. It will be a model, let the president show an example to the society, that he fights corruption, which he announced himself,” Yuriy Boyko said.
As for the statements of the Prosecutor General regarding the submission to the removal of the immunity from the MP Serhiy Dunaev, then, according to Yuriy Boyko, his only fault is that he is the representative of the OPPOSITION BLOC.
“The views that pass through the parliament, for the most part, relate to the OPPOSITION BLOC. Dunaev has been elected by a majority system in the Luhansk region, in Lysychansk, he is absolutely normal, an honest MP, and I believe that this is another attempt to distract the society from the shameful political and economic situation, to “make a PR” on this, to create some theatrical performance, to distract the parliament from the fact that it practically does not work for the benefit of people. That is, this is another theatrical action,” the leader of the opposition stressed.
