Samopomich states destruction of anti-corruption system in Ukraine

The Samopomich faction in parliament sees the possible removal of MP Yehor Sobolev from the post of chairman of the parliament's committee on preventing and combating corruption as the destruction of the anti-corruption system in Ukraine, faction leader Oleh Bereziuk has said.

"The destruction of the anti-corruption committee is the destruction of the anti-corruption system in Ukraine as a whole - the anti-corruption committee in parliament, the NABU and the anti-corruption court, which they do not want to create. Look how they [the factions of the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko, the People's Front, the Opposition Bloc] amicably vote for everything with an oligarchic coalition," Bereziuk told reporters on the sidelines of the Verkhovna Rada in Kyiv on Thursday.

According to him, the committee headed by Sobolev 99% fulfilled the anti-corruption program.

As reported, the Verkhovna Rada included in its agenda a draft resolution on Sobolev's dismissal as head of the anti-corruption committee.
