      Volodymyr Groysman: This Parliament will not hide crimes of MPs regardless of their surnames

      The decision to cancel deputy and judge immunity is right on time. This was stressed by Chairperson of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during a briefing on Thursday after voting in the session hall for submitting presidential bill on amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine (re immunity of people's deputies of Ukraine and judges) to the Constitutional Court.

      Volodymyr Groysman reminded that according to the procedure, after receiving a conclusion of the Constitutional Court, the Parliament at the next session, in September, shall finally approve the document's text "finally approve and cancel unlimited immunity".

      At the same time, Chairperson of the Parliament claimed that some MPs are worried about canceling the immunity. Volodymyr Groysman stressed that Parliament's task is to create a quality legal system, an open and public judicial system. "Then we won't need to worry about any prosecutions", he stated.

      "When there is a submission that a people's deputy of Ukraine, regardless of their surname, committed a crime, I will be that Chairperson of the Verkhovna Rada who will submit to the Parliament an issue on canceling their immunity and will vote in favour of this", claimed Volodymyr Groysman.

      He hopes that present Verkhovna Rada "will not hide any crimes of any MPs". "We are ready for these decisions", he said.

      Chairperson of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman claimed that building a quality legal system is possible only if deputies, as everyone else, bear responsibility for committing a crime.

      Answering questions on considering the bill on President's impeachment, Volodymyr Groysman said that this document "is being discussed among deputy factions". He reminded that this is a separate procedure that has no relation to the procedure of canceling the immunity.

      Summing up, Chairperson of the Verkhovna Rada claimed that national legislation requires complex reforms, amendments to the Constitution as well.

      In this context, he reminded about the meeting with Chairperson of the Venice Commission where they discussed ways of cooperation "from the viewpoint of elaborating quality bills". "We are starting the work on systematization of legislation", said Volodymyr Groysman. Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine

          • February 4th. Parliament recognized the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court to commit crimes against humanity and war crimes of leadership of Rossia and leaders "DNR", "LNR". If the Rossians have done crimes in Ukraine and it is proved the Hague Tribunal, those who committed these crimes will be held accountable. That if they leave outside Rossia. While they are in they do not fall under the jurisdiction of the Hague.

            The Prosecutor of Ukraine submitted evidence to the Hague Court evidence of crimes against humanity committed by Rossia in Ukraine.

              • Yatsenyuk calls for nation to mobilize
                Feb. 11, 2015, 3:41 p.m. KYIV POST by Victoria Petrenko

                Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said the nation has to mobilize not only militarily, but also in every other way to combat Russia's war against Ukraine.

                "We have to do everything for our defense," Yatsenyuk said. "For example, to conduct mobilization. But this is not only mobilization of the army, but also a mobilization of the government, of the whole state apparatus for defense of Ukraine and every single citizen."

                Yatsenyuk said that he hopes Ukraine will finish negotiations with international creditors, primarily the International Monetary Fund, on austerity measures required to win as much as $15 billion in new credit "The talks are not easy," he conceded. "No one will give money for nothing."

                Russia's war against Ukraine has cost the nation's economy

                “The war in Ukraine takes not only people's lives but also the life of the economy. We lost 20 percent during one year. At the same time we pay salaries, pensions, social benefits."

                He called for "unity and solidarity" to conduct energy and other reforms, especially in Parliament.

                "We have one million temporarily displaced people. We will make changes to the state budget, but we have a lack of money. We pay them now one-time and monthly allowances. Also, I have to remind that we must have accommodations for temporarily displaced," Yatsenyuk said.

                The prime minister also talked about the continuing corruption, despite last year's revolution that ousted President Viktor Yanukovych.

                While Ukraine's elected leaders have changed, "half of the state apparatus consists of those people who worked before" the EuroMaidan Revolution of 2013-2014 and who "continue to work after," Yatsenyuk said. "There are many cases of recent bribery, local abuses. Therefore, one the main tasks are changes of managers in local authorities. Even those who came only a year or half ago are already used to live according to the old schemes. The infection spreads fast, Yatsenyuk says.

                Even with decentralization of powers to local officials, Yatsenyuk said there must be accountability.

                “I appeal to the leaders of the regional state administrations: read carefully the document, what it says and the tools we gave to you. The money given for regional administrations shouldn't be used for conducting opaque tenders. You are obliged to use them transparently and report about this. Once a week report at the site of the regional state administration on how much and what for the money had been spent in order people could know." Yatsenyuk calls for nation to mobilize

                • 'Russia's war against Ukraine has cost the nation's economy' - it has cost the economy because the Poroshenko regime has decided to take on Novorossiya forces INSTEAD of constant negotiation of boundaries and policies.

                  No one has dared look at the realities of a military escalation.

                  If boundaries and autonomy is negotiated, both sides can pursue economic developments.

                  • You mean like the Minsk I treaty?

                    The one that UA shopped any offensive shooting and went into defense mode and the terrorists kept shooting and advancing? That one like this one isn't worth the paper it's printed on.

                    Russia is still sending arms and supplies into UA yet the cease fire starts Saturday. Why? (if they were serious about it)

                            Very interesting forum. Not easy questions. I loved when he was asked about the coalition, and when he said, frankly i'd rather keep talking about oligarchs then the so called coalition.

                            • As time drifts by it is becoming less convincing that the RADA have full initiative to get on top of corruption and are prepared to bide their time hoping that memories will dim and that passed governmental crimes within Ukraine will be forgotten. One can only conclude that from this tardiness there are too many current members of parliament with skeletons in the cupboard and that keeping their heads down is the best way of avoiding some future embarrassment.

                              The need to get on top of corruption has been voiced by both the US and EU authorities and it should be remembered that these benefactors are now the pit props of the Ukraine economy and future funding is dependent on the performance of the RADA. I'm also sure that any progress, or lack of it is being noted by the Ukrainian electorate who understand that whilst many among their current leadership may leave much to be desired, to cause any significant agitation will only benefit the Putin brigade who still live among them and are trained to exploit any cracks opening up to the disadvantage of Ukrainian patriots and to the advantage of the Kremlin.
