Oleg Tsarev About Life in Ukraine April 18, 2017 Analysis Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard 20:55:34 18/04/2017 oleg tsarev I ask everyone who comes from Ukraine what is going on there. I met my colleague, a deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. He has a business in Russia. A business in Ukraine. He is happy with his life. He says that the rules in the Verkhovna Rada changed cardinally. There was never so much money in the Verkhovna Rada as there is now. Payments for votes are like never before. Earlier the group of Deputies in which my colleague is a part of was paid by Kolomoisky, and now by Poroshenko. The parliament is arranged in such a way that the more instability there is in the country, the more important Parliament is. Expensive cars, vacation at foreign resorts. Life is chocolate! I talk to simple people from Ukraine. Life is worse and worse. There is no glimmer of light. I have a lot of pity for people who found themselves as hostages of the new power. As for Deputies, I am sure that in the end one has to pay for everything, including for a “chocolate life”. I don’t know how it is for you, but I won’t have any pity for today’s Deputies.
