In his last speech as head of the Verkhovna Rada, Razumkov recalled the slogans from the election campaign about the inviolability of only the Carpathian forests, pensioners who are happy to live and receive a decent pension, about corrupt officials who receive a real term; he spoke very harshly about Zelensky's offshore companies and said that “it is always difficult to rise up and go against the system. But if this is the only correct choice, then it must be made.” You can read the full text of the speech HERE.

Recall that Dmytro Razumkov came to parliament from the presidential party "Servant of the People". During the elections, he was the main political adviser and spokesman for the headquarters of candidate Volodymyr Zelensky.

From May to November 2019, he led the party, and later became the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada.

However, subsequently, the views of Razumkov and Bankova Street began to differ a little.
