‘What else am I going to do? I’ll join the blockade. It doesn’t matter if I take my seat, talk from the rostrum or just go and do my business – the result would be all the same’, Nadiya Savchenko said.
According to her, MPs will work more effectively if they are kept away from the session hall for a week. ‘An armed guard at a door and a week of not letting them inside the hall – then they’ll get to work. The entire nation’s asking for it’, Savchenko said.
‘I met with the people holding a demonstration near the Parliament’s building. There are liquidators of the Chornobyl disaster and those who demand raising salaries…I asked what kind of laws are they interested in. Well, it’s not like we’re going to work today and, thus, there will be no voting. What else can I say?,’ the MP said.
Savchenko’s party Batkivshchyna joined the blockade, started by Oleg Lyashko’s Radical Party. The MPs demand transparent investigations of corruption cases involving politicians and businessmen across the country.
