Ukrainian MP, the head of the "Opposition Platform - For Life" party Vadym Rabinovich said that the bills on the luxury tax are the correct laws.
"Despite the fact that we must fight not with the rich, but with the poor, I believe that today the bills on the luxury tax are the correct laws that more or less equalize the situation in the country," he said on the 112 Ukraine TV channel during the Voice of the People show.
In addition, the deputy stated that the authorities must admit defeat in the fight against corruption. "We need to understand one simple thing - we have to confess defeat in the fight against corruption, not we (Ukrainians, - ed.), but they (power, - ed.) ... They created many anti-corruption bodies, they have worked hard this year, and the amount of money received by the budget from the whole fight against corruption is seven thousand dollars. I would collectively hang myself "in their place," Rabinovich added.
“I got more votes in the presidential elections in Ukraine, than all the radicals of the state combined. I don’t get it. I came here with pain – our journalists are being killed and beaten and you say: “There is aggression in your country.” What aggression has to do with it? Is it allowed to murder the journalists in terms of aggression? I can’t speak about Russia, I am not in charge of the situation. My heart is sick for our journalists, this is my pain. I pray and ask God to solve all the problems in our country, and then we will show our neighbors how to live. Indeed, our situation is difficult, yes, there is a war going on, but it’s not a reason for murdering the journalists,” he said.
