Ukrainian MP said that the Parliament has passed in a mode "buy-sell"

Verkhovna Rada Deputy from the party "Opposition platform for life," Ilya Kiva declared that the Parliament of Ukraine has passed in a mode "buy-sell" and all votes are by appointment.

"Rada has passed in a mode "buy-sell" system-offs for deliberate gain. Today, the MPs believe that they should agree in advance on their ballots. They see it as an opportunity to get these or other preferences... as far As the laws aimed at restoring order in our country, they also want to get preferences", - quotes the statement of Kiva's press service on the website of the party "Opposition platform for life".

According to him, thanks to the agreements were adopted the laws on gambling and alternative energy. "It's all lobbying laws," he said. In his view, this situation prevented the Parliament to pass a bill enabling to dismiss the Director of the National anticorruption Bureau of Ukraine Artem Sytnik.

"(The head of the Pro-presidential faction "servant of the people" in Parliament, David - ed.) Arakhamia questioned the issue of the number of votes that must be present for positive decision-making that has led to the fact that the bill was sent back for revision. Someone leaped pride, someone thought, that it not pre-arranged. Rada is not the legality of decisions, not common sense, and the presence of contract workers," he added.

Under current law, the Director of the anti-corruption Bureau is appointed and dismissed by the President of Ukraine. Thus, the Verkhovna Rada can make a decision about the dismissal of the Director anti-corruption Bureau. The question of dismissal must be initiated by at least 150 deputies. The Director of the Bureau is appointed for a term of seven years. The same person may not hold office for two consecutive terms.

In September 2019 the court in Rivne region was fined rush for $ 135 because of its "elite" travelers. Sytnik called the decision illegal and filed an appeal. Then his name was entered in the state register of corrupt officials, he declared intention to challenge this in the European court of human rights.
