Poroshenko Tries to Fool the US: The Verkhovna Rada Voted “For” the Anti-Corruption Court

Translated by Ollie Richardson



On June 7th the Verkhovna Rada approved by 315 votes the law on the Anti-corruption Court, the introduction of which was lobbied long time by the US for control over the Ukrainian top. The adoption of the law was one of West’s conditions for the continuation of financial aid to Ukraine.

Petro Poroshenko, who came to parliament, declared the results of the vote as a “victory”, although earlier the participants of Maidan led by Mikheil Saakashvili accused the president of being unwilling to establish the Anti-corruption court.

It seems that the attempt to deceive curators
from the US Embassy became the reason for the ostentatious joy of Poroshenko. The version of the bill presented in the Rada was criticised by Yulia Tymoshenko. According to her, the document was created so that the Anti-corruption court will be the next body in the “pocket” of Poroshenko.

Activists-grant eaters under the control of the West specify that the law is formulated in such a way that, contrary to the requirements of the IMF, foreign experts won’t be able to veto the appointment of members of the Anti-corruption court. Thus, Poroshenko will be able to create a court from among the loyal thieving “judges”.

Similar accusations were sounded also by Lyashko’s ally Igor Mosiychuk. “He created for himself a Supreme anti-corruption court controlled by his favourites … The cynical farce of cynical con artists,” he said to Poroshenko.

“Approving the law is a third of the matter. Now there will be many attempts to manipulate and sabotage its implementation,” predicted the deputy Egor Sobolev.

The economist Andrey Blinov believes that the Anti-corruption court will turn into another repressive body that will be involved in dismantling politicians in Ukraine. “Something suggests that those who lose the election will be subjected to the severity of the law,” noted the expert.
