Eurosolidarity calls on authorities to stop blocking Poroshenko’s participation in NATO-Ukraine Interparliamentary Council
MEPs from the European Solidarity faction have initiated an immediate reception at the Prosecutor General’s Office to hand over a package of documents on the trip of the fifth President of Ukraine, MP Petro Poroshenko, to Brussels at the NATO-Ukraine Interparliamentary Council next Monday.
As reports the press service of the political force, the corresponding statement was made by the co-chair of the faction “Euroolidarity” Irina Gerashchenko.
The EU leader is an official member of this delegation, and it is clear that his participation in the discussion, the authority and the peculiarity of his relationship with the representatives of this international institution should never be used to defend the country. would be drops of common sense and awareness of responsibility for the unity of the country, “Gerashchenko said.
She said that Prosecutor General Irina Venediktov was absent from the reception, so her deputies received the deputies.
Gerashchenko also said that Poroshenko’s lawyers had appealed to investigators from the State Bureau of Investigation and to the court “regarding the dual international mission of opposition leaders.”
Unfortunately, the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Ruslan Stefan, who acknowledges that Petro Poroshenko is a member of this delegate and has all the relevant requests from our partners, said that he would sign a business trip order immediately with the permission of investigators or the Prosecutor General’s Office. , and we remind you that the Verkhovna Rada is an independent body of power, which is not governed by either the prosecutor’s office or the DBR, “the deputy stressed.
Gerashchenko called on investigators not to block the political activities of opposition faction leaders, “especially against the background of security threats facing Ukraine and the importance of fighting for the country’s support on the diplomatic front.”
The People’s Deputy also stated that Eurosolidarity considers the refusal of the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada to sign the decrees without instructions from the prosecutor’s office “as an obstacle to Poroshenko’s political activity and blocking the EU faction’s representation in the international delegation.”
“We call on all involved in the operational consideration of the issue of Poroshenko’s business trip and not to block it, without strengthening the negative perception of Ukraine and the Ukrainian government in the civilized world,” Gerashchenko concluded.
