The scandalous statement by the chairman of the relevant committee of the Verkhovna Rada, the MP from the Servant of the People faction, Halyna Tretyakova caused shock among PACE members. MP from the Opposition platform - For Life Party, Oleh Voloshyn stated this on the 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"The assistants to my colleague Yulia Liovochkina, who was recently elected to the PACE monitoring committee, translated the Tretyakova’s statement into all the main working languages of the Parliamentary Assembly, and this document was distributed as much as possible among PACE members ... And the reaction, especially among representatives of the socialist faction, among all center-left parties - to put it mildly, ut is a shock," the MP said.
He emphasized that Tretyakova’s words are absolute savagery.
“Naturally, for my part, as a person responsible for international relations and working closely with the European Parliament, I will do my best to get the translation of Tretyakova’s statements to the maximum number of members of the European Parliament ... I’ve been following Tretyakova’s activities for a long time, we’ve been very sharp with her discussions - for example, she is the author of so many bills aimed at narrowing the rights of wage workers, trade unions," Voloshyn added.
He also drew attention to the fact that this was not just some kind of statement, inaccurate, careless, taken out of context.
"No, this is the belief system of this very rather strange woman who did not understand why she decided that Ukraine has too much socialism, it is necessary to deprive people of average and below-average prosperity as much as possible and to expand the rights of large business as much as possible .... This is a systematic approach to destroying the remnants of a social state, expressly stated in the Constitution of Ukraine. Naturally, we demand not just the retirement of the Tretyakova, but also the addition of a deputy mandate, as well as the initiation of a criminal case," Voloshyn added.
Earlier, on June 24, Tretyakova during a webinar at the Kyiv School of Economics stated that children "of very low quality" are born in families that rely on material assistance from the state, and spoke about sterilizing citizens without employment.
