Corruption infighting in Ukraine

Oleg Lyashko

Fort Russ reports, via pronedra.ru:

Oleg Lyashko, the leader of the “Radical Party”, speaking in the Verkhovna Rada, accused Poroshenko of bribing MPs in his party.

Pronedra previously reported that the “Radical Party” has decided to walk out of the ruling coalition and join the opposition. According to Lyashko, Poroshenko ordered the bribing of some deputies from his party so they would leave it.

The party leader named the deputies who acted on behalf of the Ukrainian president – Igor Kononenko, Alexander Tretyakov and Alexander Onishchenko. Responding to Lyashko, Vladimir Groisman, Speaker of the Parliament, offered to turn the matter over to the head prosecutors and police.

Lyashko affirmed that political corruption in Ukraine continues to thrive, and that attempts are being made on the deputies through bribery, through the usual intimidation, and through blackmail. Andriy Sadovyi, leader of the “Self-help” Party had already spoken on the subject of attempts to bribe deputies. According to his statement, they have already filed about this issue at the prosecutor’s office.

Igor Mosiychuk

Fort Russ further reports, via PolitNavigator:

The Verkhovna Rada has approved the detention and arrest of the odious Nazi MP Igor Mosiychuk from the party of Oleg Lyashko.

262 deputies voted for the draft decision.

After the vote, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Vladimir Groysman stated: “I ask that the signing of the decision for arresting Mosiychuk be prepared immediately.”

Mosiychuk himself said that the video made public in the session hall of the Verkhovna Rada, which shows him supposedly taking a bribe, was a set up, and the case against him is revenge by the Prosecutor General, Viktor Shokin.

“I don’t have any banknotes. The video was a set up. That the Prosecutor General took advantage of a fake video once again proves that they couldn’t lock me up for something else. They made this video in order to discredit me in people’s eyes. There are different fragments of different videos. One part is in an office, one in a restaurant, and one somewhere else. It’s not even obvious that someone is giving me money. Only packs are seen. I don’t have and I didn’t have such money,” Mosiychuk said.

Let’s recall that Igor Mosiychuk is a Nazi who was locked up under Yanukovich  in the case of the so-called “Vasilkovsky terrorists” and he was amnestied immediately after the victory of the Maidan. Mosiychuk was one of the founders of the neo-Nazi Social-Nationalist Assembly of Ukraine, and an associate of the ideologist of Ukrainian nazis and racists, Andrey Biletsky, together with whom he created the neo-Nazi battalion, and then regiment, “Azov.”

Mosiychuk got into parliament on the list of Lyashko’s Radical Party.
