“It’s been almost a month that we demand to create the investigation committee on offshores of Ukrainian officials. The IMF requests that Ukrainian officials shut down their offshores. The MPs are fine with raising social tariffs, and they are fine with raising retirement age; but they instantly get silent when someone offers to pass the bill on de-offshorization. We prepared the respective bill three weeks ago or so, but neither Petro Poroshenko’s Bloc nor People’s Front (Ukraine’s two largest parliamentary factions, - 112 International) so far agreed to support it. I guess it’s a clear evidence that there are a lot of people in the Parliament who are afraid of any sort of changes in this area”, MP Olexandra Kuzhel said.
