The MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Yuriy Pavlenko stated this on the TV Channel “112-Ukraine”.
According to the politician, the dismissal from the post of the Minister of Social Policy Andriy Reva threatens for his complete inaction in this area. And this is not a political decision.
“Those decrees on the dismissal of Andriy Reva, which were supported by the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Social Policy, Employment and Pension Provisions, have nothing to do with the election campaign. They are more likely to indicate a failure in the work of a particular minister,” the oppositionist said.
The author of one of the resolutions, which was supported by the relevant Committee, is Yuriy Pavlenko. According to him, in one and a half years from the moment of registration and until now, in the field of social protection, including an orphan child and a child with special needs and a child who has suffered as a result of hostilities, virtually nothing has changed.
“In some areas, the situation has become even worse than it was. For example, national adoption: the child’s upbringing rights in the family are not ensured and the number of children who have new dad and mom has decreased to a critical minimum. It was not even worse in the 90s, at the beginning of Ukraine’s independence. At the same time, the queue of families who want to take a child for adoption has not decreased, but rather increased. The inaction of specific structures of the Ministry of Social Policy today deprives hundreds of children of the right to receive timely social support and, most importantly, to be raised in a loving family. Therefore, the intention to dismiss Andriy Reva from the post of Minister of Social Policy is not the result of a discussion between political forces, but the result of his lack of professionalism and inaction in the industry entrusted to him,” Yuriy Pavlenko concluded.
