Unlike many other healthy deputies of the Verkhovna Rada, he does not insult or attack people, said Dobkin.
Opposition Bloc deputy Dmitry Dobkin commented his behavior in the Parliament on air of 112 Ukraine TV Channel. He did not take any drugs or drink alcohol and he indeed has problems with health, Dobkin said.
“I did not take any drugs or drink alcohol. We are all living people, all humans. I do have some neurological problems, but it only concerns me. This is about my health. And unlike many other healthy deputies of the Verkhovna Rada, I do not attack people or insult anyone. This is something I do not want to discuss,” said Dobkin.
He is ready to take a psychiatric or neurologic evaluation if his colleagues do the same, Dobkin Junior added.
“Some deputies that accuse me from their high rostrums gained so much weight during these two years in the Parliament that when I see it, it makes me laugh when I hear such accusations. Personally I do sports, I choose to be health-conscious and I wish this for everybody. If those people take it with me (evaluation - editor’s note), I would not refuse,” Dobkin assured.
Dobkin also commented his interest in tour of €135 thousand.
“This was one of the propositions. I do plan to go to on a vacation with my family on New Year holidays. For some reason they picked the most expensive one, though there were propositions a lot cheaper. So far I did not buy anything. If I buy something and the journalists find out about it, I will gladly provide them with this information. Like any other normal person, I’d like to go for a little money as possible. I have not yet decided where to go,” Dobkin said.
The people’s deputy tried to cover his chat with his hand, but on the video you can see a part of it that shows that Dobkin booked a tour for 6 people that costs €135 thousand. This video was published on TVgolosnaroda in Youtube.
Right after that he hid himself behind the column in the Parliament hall and took something with water. He returned to his seat with a weird expression on his face and really agitated.
As it was reported earlier, security forces carried out searches in the premises belonging to mayor Hennadiy Kernes and Dmitry Dobkin’s brother, Mykhailo Dobkin’s mother in Kharkiv.
