Initiated by Mikhail Saakashvili, public «cleansing» is going to hold their new forums in several regional centers in Western Ukraine. Relevant information was posted on Facebook by one of the participants of the new Association Valeriy Pekar.
«16 February the Movement for the purification begins a tour of regional centers of Ukraine. We’ll tell people about which path leads to freedom and prosperity, support of activists and politicians, combating corruption, will make their voice heard in Kyiv,» he wrote.
«Our goal is to collect during the campaign of 1,000,000 signatures in support of our demands, to create a wide public coalition, which will not allow the government to ignore the will of the people,» said Baker.
Forums will be held: February 16 — in Chernivtsi, February 17 in Ivano-Frankivsk, February 18, in Uzhgorod.
Baker recalls that at the end of 2015, politicians and representatives of civil society created a «Motion for clarification».
«Anti-corruption forum, which was held on 18 January 2016 in Kharkiv, has identified the immediate tasks of the Movement. He also said that the basic requirements of the movement:
1. To form a new government that will command the confidence of the people and radically to reform all spheres of life, acting in the interests of the overwhelming majority of Ukrainians, rather than a narrow group close to the authorities.
2. To appoint a new attorney General who will put their purpose, not to defend but to destroy the corrupt system.
3. Strengthen legislation to combat corruption. Thieves should sit in jail, not in Parliament and government.
4. To pass laws that will allow citizens and businesses to work honestly and grow rich», — stated in the message.
Registration to the forum is proposed here.
Anti-corruption «Movement» was held in Odessa, Kiev and Kharkov. While the delegates of the Kyiv forum were welcomed by President Petro Poroshenko.
At the same time, Saakashvili does not hide that «Movement» was created to fight the government of Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
However, he denies that we are talking about his Prime Minister’s personal ambitions.
According to people’s Deputy, member of «BPP» Mustafa Nayem, it is transformed into a separate political party. Political scientists also argue about the high probability of involvement of this project in early parliamentary elections.
As noted by Saakashvili on Facebook, conducting elections in the Verkhovna Rada would support 63% of the Ukrainian voters, will not support — 20% .
According to him, «Yatsenyuk holds, in addition to the votes his faction (the popular front — ed.), voices of Akhmetov in the Parliament». «The state needs to respond to hostage-taking and blackmail by the oligarchs to the fullest extent of the law. To change Ukraine for the better is very easy, just need to steal and love the country», — said the politician.
«Motion for clarification» begins pre-election tour of Western Ukraine. Saakashvili is sure that Yatsenyuk held by Akhmetov 12.02.2016
