Ukraine’s MP from ‘Batkivshchyna’ party Nadiya Savchenko doubts, she’ll ever learn to lie to people like Ukraine’s politicians do it every single day, she stated while talking to the press:
‘There was an incident. This is how Ukraine’s Parliament works and this is what surprises me very much. I listen, I try to listen and understand. For instance, my colleague MP reads an amendment to the pension reform. She describes it as very beneficial for people. I listen and think to myself: ‘Yes, this is a right thing to do’. I vote ‘for’ the amendment with my MP card. But then, I start to get suspicious, withdraw my card and I say: ‘Please, show me the amendment’. They give it to me so I could read it. It’s beyond me to grasp how MPs do such things every day. My colleague MP explained to me, what the amendment was about and then I read it myself and it turns out that it implies a compeletely different thing. So, I just withdrew my card and didn’t vote. Unfortunately, I know this colleague of mine very well. I intend to approach her and say, that if it’s the way Ukraine’s Parliament works, then, I’m sorry, we keep cheating people every day. I don’t want to be a part of this’, - Savchenko shared with journalists.
