Kyva presents refreshed team of Socialist Party in Poltava
Head of the Socialist Party of Ukraine Illia Kyva gave information about the party's plans for the future and presented new teammates in Poltava on February 25 during his working visit to the city.
"For a long time we have been shaping the team that will really work, will defend the interests of the citizens of Poltava. My task as a leader was to make the party, first and foremost, patriotic and devoted to Ukrainian nation building. After all, the left wing was initially formed as a staging ground for the pro-Russian forces - in the conditions of war it was important not to allow this. We purged the party and began to revive the grassroot organizations. They will become the pivot of a structure that will defend the interests of the people: raising social standards, social security and making a strong order, "the head of the SPU said.
The politician also announced his resolute intention to participate in the parliamentary election. After all, it would be possible to solve the problems of Ukraine only when the Verkhovna Rada will have people whose actions are aimed at strengthening nation building. "Our primary task is to participate in the parliamentary election. This will provide an opportunity to protect the position of the people in the supreme governing institution. This is the opportunity of effectively fighting against corruption, standing up for the nationalization of the energy complex: both regional electricity supply companies and gas wells, which are today actually under control of private commercial entities. We have strength, opportunities and potential. But for this we need, first of all, to create a workable, active, principled and patriotic party," Kyva said.
At the same time, the Head of the SPU presented the new head of the local party organization - Serhiy Cherednichenko, who has been fighting against corruption in the region for several years. The latter shared the results of the party's work in Poltava. "The Khytry market at the South Station is a vivid example of the effectiveness of actions in our city. For 10 years there was an unregulated trade there, and half a year ago we have put things in order. We will continue working, using the same principle. Our team will differ from the rest with the result and political responsibility. Our buses work under the anti-corruption program in the transport industry. We proved that it is possible to reduce the bus fares. Bus stops must have a title. There must be bus schedules. We must reduce oversupply of buses. It is necessary to develop local carriers and pour money into local entrepreneurs. Now for us the main thing is to shape a strong team. We will certainly present the full composition of our party and we will rebuild the party organizations from scratch," Cherednichenko said.
Kiva said that municipal transport in Poltava is working on a "well-established corrupt scheme of city councils": "About 4 million UAH per month is a city racket, namely by city officials. Each minibus monthly pays UAH 10,000 in cash to the pockets of officials, and in Poltava there are about 400 buses. The destruction of this scheme will significantly reduce the fares and expenses of citizens. I am sure that the Cherednichenko's team will be able to break the backbone of urban corruption, and we will support it in this," Kyva said.
