KYIV. Sept 11 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The faction of the Samopomich Association in Kyiv City Council has made the decision on the termination of its activities and dissolution, the head of the faction, Serhiy Husovsky, has said.
"The faction [...] has decided to dissolve the deputy faction of the Samopomich Association in Kyiv City Council of the eighth convocation and stop its activities," Husovsky read out the text of the faction's decision at a press conference at the Interfax-Ukraine news agency on Tuesday.
According to him, the faction adopted such a decision at the general meeting attended by 19 out of 22 Kyiv City Council deputies from Samopomich.
The statement also notes disagreement with the actions and decisions of the party leadership regarding the evaluation of the faction's activity in Kyiv City Council.
The faction also says that publicly expressed accusations against the faction and its individual members are groundless and provocative.
The statement notes that the faction does not agree with the language of ultimatums, threats and practice of humiliation of dignity.
The faction expressed its disagreement with inner-party culture, the order and method of making managerial decisions in the party, the method and tonality of inner-party communication.
While making such a decision, the faction was guided by Part 1, 11, 12, Article 17 of the Kyiv City Council regulations and point 4.7.9 of the clause about the faction.
Husovsky said that he intends to transfer the decision of the Samopomich faction to the secretary of the Kyiv City Council on Tuesday. He is convinced that on the same day, at a plenary session of the city council, the decision will be made public and will come into force.
On the evening of September 6, the executive committee of the Samopomich Association decided to exclude Kyiv City Council deputies Husovsky, Oleksiy Rudenko, Serhiy Kharchuk and Vadym Vasylchuk from the composition of party members, arguing that they caused significant damage to the reputation of the political party.
"These deputies supported the decision of the Kyiv City Council to allocate to the relatives of their colleague, Roman Marchenko, land plots in the city of Kyiv, which earlier were illegally seized by him," the party's press service said.
