February 24 2016 Oleh Pankevych: Renewal of the transit of russian transport through the territory of Ukraine is a high treason of national interests

Oleh Pankevych: "Renewal of the transit of russian transport through the territory of Ukraine is a high treason of national interests".

Restoration of the transit of russian transport through the territory of Ukraine is not just a corruption conspiracy but is a high treason by the government. This was said by the alternate of the Head of "Svoboda", authorized speaker of a nationalistic faction in Lviv regional council Oleh Pankevych, commenting on the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers on the restoration of russian cargo transit through the territory of Ukraine.

According to Oleh Pankevych, it's an inadequate response to the actions of the aggressor state, especially in the economic sphere. The speaker of "Svoboda" emphasized: "Such steps of the government can't but be named anti-state steps. It's not about Ukrainian interests but rather about interests of the aggressor state and private interests of certain persons. It's not only a corruption conspiracy - it is the high treason under the auspices of the government!".

As the nationalist said, it's especially alarming that the provision of the straffic transit will be ensured by the office of Avakov. "This means that the general public which has decided to block up the russian cargo transit, will be now impeded by police. Has somebody thought of the consequences it may lead to? Instead of paying attention to appeals of Ukrainians, instead of adopting a balanced statehood decision, the government lays a ground for a conflict", - noted Oleh Pankevych.

It is to be reminded that on February 15, 2016 authorized speaker of the nationalistic faction in Lviv regional council Oleh Pankevych communicated to the regional council a draft appeal to the central authorities prohibiting the russian cargo transport transit through the territory of Ukraine.
