The Servant of the People Party wants to force the Opposition Platform - For Life to pass a bill authorizing the sale of Ukrainian land. The chairman of the political council of the party Opposition Platform - For Life, MP Viktor Medvedchuk stated this on the 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“Moreover, according to the clarification of the Constitutional Court, parliament cannot consider a single issue if there are less than 226 MPs in the hall. Today there are 170-180 of them physically in the hall. Despite this, this pressure, this blackmail, this lawlessness continues in the Verkhovna Rada building with one purpose: to push this bill through at night or until morning,” - he said.
“It remains to vote about 440-450 edits, this is another 10, 12 or 14 hours of work. They want to force us, the Opposition Platform - For Life, which today has become virtually the only party that defends the land, protects the national property of Ukraine and Ukrainians, which is land, in this case agricultural land, so that we no longer participate in this and they were able to put this question to the vote. But they won’t succeed. Our position is principled, consistent, we go all the way in the issues of the struggle of our citizens, in order that the land does not become the subject of plundering, what the government wants today and what the cynical IMF, the Soros funds are demanding from the government today ... and many others that have long been they laid eyes on our land, on our national treasure, and they are trying to capture it at all costs. We are doing everything possible and everything necessary in accordance with the law, in accordance with our powers, and we will continue this fight, despite all the tricks, despite all the blackmail and despite the fact that the authorities are trying to make attitude towards this law in the hall of parliament, violating both the law on regulations and the Constitution of the country," Medvedchuk emphasized.
As we reported, the Opposition Platform - For Life has enough reasons to appeal the land law to the Constitutional Court.
