The “Uspіshna Kraina” party applies for police inactivity to the prosecutor’s office and Central Department of National Police in the context of current events in Sumy. Oleksandr Klymenko, the leader of the “Uspishna Kraina” party, publicly appealed to Yuri Lutsenko, the Prosecutor General, to estimate actions of law enforcement officers.

Let us remind, during a business forum of entrepreneurs, which was held by the “Uspіshna Kraina” party in Sumy, representatives of the radical organizations with tear gas broke into the hall and smashed the room. They were threatening people, who visited the forum.  The event, which was attended by more than 150 entrepreneurs, was suspended, the forum participants were evacuated. At the same time, law enforcement officials demonstrated inactivity and did not stop radicals.

«I would like to appeal to the Prosecutor General. You have working experience in opposition. You coped with the obstacles, when you were pursued, when you refused in providing halls. Nowadays, you are the Prosecutor General. Did you want to obtain the position of the Prosecutor General in order to lead repressive machine, or to make it an effective tool for real respect for law and order in our country», – Klymenko stated.

Klymenko called up the Prosecutor General to give a public assessment of course of events and decide “is he on the side of democracy … or on the side of the system, which pursue any alternative position”.

In addition, leader of the «Uspishna Kraina» party called on ordinary law enforcement officers not to succumb to “criminal instructions from above” and to support ordinary people.

«The country as an airplane is flying into the abyss. Nowadays, people, who want to change the country, who want to live in it, to develop, to raise their children here, gathered together in order to talk about fair tax. We gathered in order to talk and offer positive changes. What did the authorities do?! They started to poison entrepreneurs with tear gas, to throw the bottles, to smash everything via the hands of paid thugs hiding behind women and children. Meanwhile, the police remained inactive. It just was watching the scene. Taking into account the fact that we officially appealed to them with the requirement to ensure the rule of law and the order “- Klymenko said.

The politician believes that “it is not democratic, it is not a European country, where the government and radicals – are the one piece”. According to him, authorities are fighting not for the country, but “for themselves, their survival, their pockets.” “This government must resign, otherwise we will lose the country!” – said Klymenko.

Let us remind, radicals have already attempted to disrupt the forums of entrepreneurs, which were held by the party in Dnepr and Kharkov. The aim of forums that are held throughout Ukraine is to develop the principles of fair tax legislation, to create conditions for business development and to block withdrawal of capital to the offshore by oligarchs.
