The Ministry of justice of Ukraine has considered the request of President Vladimir Zelensky lyustrirovat officials of President Petro Poroshenko’s populist and revanchist. About it the Deputy Minister Sergei Petukhov wrote in his Facebook.
Petukhov believes that the main purpose of the bill is to increase the ratings Zelensky before the election, as the Parliament will not have time to consider the bill and return it to the President. “Will he filed in the new Parliament? I do not know. But he definitely will not be accepted. After collection of electoral harvest, he will be put on the shelf of history”, — said Petukhov.
Deputy Minister also suggested that another objective of the bill is “to cover officials of the times of [former President Viktor] Yanukovych.”
“Why populism? Because right includes the elected office that does not meet the criteria of lustration, defined in the decisions of the ECHR. Why revanchism? Because puts on the same level of people who shot the Maidan, and those who defended him. Thus offset by the value of the revolution of Dignity”, — summed up his position cocks.
July 12, Zelensky was registered in the Verkhovna Rada the bill according to which former head of state Petro Poroshenko and his entourage will not be able to hold public office. Under the amendments, developed by a team Zelensky, under lustration can get all members of the government and the Verkhovna Rada, including the speaker of Parliament, heads of the Prosecutor General, security Service, national security Council and defense, fiscal and customs services, the Antimonopoly Committee and top managers of defense enterprises, which held their positions since February 23, 2014 to may 19, 2019.
The ambassadors of the countries “the Big seven” have criticized the document, saying that the current situation in Ukraine is not comparable to that which occurred after Euromaidan — mass protest actions in Kiev in 2013-2014.
