According to Svoboda's MP Oleh Bondarchuk, the Lustration Bill should not lose its purpose and must not become purely declarative. It should be applied to all former KGB officers, persons who occupied senior positions in the Communist Party, the Yanukovych regime's representatives, agents of the Kremlin and all corrupt individuals. "Svoboda" will make every effort to support this request of Ukrainian people and Maidan.
Svoboda closely watches the information pertaining to the 17 August Berlin meeting of the Heads of MFAs from Ukraine, Germany, France and Russia. We are not against the attempts to promote resolution of the current situation by means of diplomacy. However, we stress that the enemy systematically uses international negotiations in order to strengthen its positions on the occupied Ukrainian territories, regroup the terrorists and fortify their stations. There is no doubt that the same thing happened during the last negotiations.
On 12 August 2014, whilst delivering a speech at the Parliament, the Leader of "Svoboda" Oleh Tyagnybok stressed the importance of the following matters:
According to Svoboda's MP, Andriy Illyenko, the Parliament must adopt the vital law on lustration. Otherwise, Ukraine's government will remain full of traitors and those hired by Kremlin. He added: "Today the Parliament will consider extremely important bills in regard to the electoral system. We demand that the Bill on proportional electoral system with open candidates' lists is adopted. This will prevent further conservation of the old political class that brought Ukraine to crisis. "
In an interview with French channel "TV5", Ukraine's Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin stated that the Ukrainian Government is ready to give an official status to Russian language in each region that would ask for it. I would like to point out that in his comment regarding any language policy in Ukraine Mr. Klimkin should be guided exclusively by Article 10 of the Constitution of Ukraine, not by his subjective assessments.
Svoboda people deputies Oleh Pankevych and Taras Osaulenko registered draft Resolution "On appeal of Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to the National Assembly of the French Republic". Svoboda MPs call upon the French parliamentarians to block the transfer of Mistral-class amphibious assault ships to Russia as under the current circumstances this may boost the offensive potential of the Russian aggressor.
According to Oleh Tiahnybok, everyone, including the Government, need to consolidate their efforts to provide Ukrainian troops with all necessary means to achieve victory over Moscow invaders. Ukrainian people already provide those who fight in ATO zone with bulletproof vests, helmets and other necessary military equipment. However, oligarchs, whose actions led to the situation that we are facing in eastern Ukraine have to support the Army as well.
The breakdown of the coalition is the path to re-election of the Parliament: "Svoboda" decided to withdraw from the coalition with the sole purpose - to create a legal basis for holding early parliamentary elections (article 90 of the Constitution of Ukraine). Re-election of this Parliament is a requirement of the Revolution of Dignity, which is supported by most Ukrainians. Politicians must fulfil this requirement.
