On June 1 in Kyiv, deputies discussed opportunities of creating temporary investigative commission (TIC) on looking into the offshores that belong to Ukrainian officials. Nadiya Savchenko turned to them, urging to ‘repent errors’.

‘I heard a lot of right things that they talked about here. But these words are followed by very wrong actions. Every government that comes to power in this country always points at the high level of corruption among those in the previous Cabinet. But no government has so far confessed they were corrupt, too’, she said.

‘The nation is watching all of you. If you don’t create this commission now, the people will realize you are the same as the previous governments. If you create the commission and it will do no good, the people will figure you out, too. So I advise you to do what the bandits in the post-Soviet society did once. They used to steal a lot, and at some point they felt they were full, eventually. So they took their money and brought them to the church, to the needy. So you’d better pray for people’s forgiveness. Start with yourself, give people something you don’t need. And then, they will support you, and you will save Ukraine. If you don’t, the people will destroy you all, this entire Parliament. So I advise you to create this commission and do it honestly and transparently. Perhaps it will be the first thing that the government can do for the people', Savchenko concluded.
