MP again accuses the government of corrupted schemes

Member of parliament Ihor Rybakov (ex-member of the BYuT faction), who has recently left the parliamentary coalition, claims that another several lawmakers are ready to leave the BYuT faction.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, I.Rybakov claimed this in an interview with journalists.

“With this statement, I warn head of government Yulia Tymoshenko, who also heads the parliamentary faction of BYuT, that my example may be followed by many lawmakers who do not want to become accomplices in schemes of covering illegal activities, and shadow corrupted schemes. Finally, the Verkhovna Rada should undertake systematic anti-corruption measures and force the government to put an end to lawlessness at customs offices. Legal and shadow leaders of coalition should realize that fair and honest lawmakers do not agree to be a silent background of slogans that remain merely empty sounds”, I.Rybakov said.

The lawmaker believes that namely the government “conducts large-scale schemes of contraband import, which destroy the domestic production”.

“Many my colleagues in parliament, including in the BYuT faction, realize the state of affairs. They do not want to perform the role of extras in the absurd performance, when BYuT in words wages a struggle with corruption, and in reality – is a recipient of illegally acquired money”, the lawmaker stressed.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on June 6 Ihor Rybakov left the BYuT faction.
