“The Batkivschyna United Opposition has prepared and submitted an
appeal to the Prosecutor General’s Office demanding that it immediately
stop this decision and open a criminal case on large-scale corruption
that was documented by this resolution,” the head of the central
headquarters of the united opposition, Oleksandr Turchynov, said at a
press conference on Wednesday, Aug. 22.
“We are demanding [that the Prosecutor General’s Office] investigate
corrupt connections that led to the adoption of this resolution and
investigate the corrupt connections of those who took this resolution
and those for whom it was taken,” he said.
“We understand what the reaction of the Prosecutor General’s Office
will be like… Unfortunately, we can predict that they will open no
criminal cases, because the Prosecutor General’s Office is currently
servicing the interests of corrupt officials, rather than fighting
corruption,” Turchynov said.
