Unshakable Ukrainian corruption (The New York Times, USA)



The Ukrainian parliament on Tuesday finally voted for the removal of the odious prosecutor general of the country, Viktor Shokin. The United States and European countries providing assistance to Ukraine have long insisted on his resignation. During his tenure, Shokin became a symbol of corruption deeply rooted in Ukraine, since he did not bring to justice any member of the overthrown Yanukovych regime and the current government, but diligently blocked the efforts of reform-minded deputies. Alas, nothing will change if President Petro Poroshenko and the parliament do not agree on the appointment of true fighters against corruption and do not carry out serious reforms in the judicial system.

Corruption in Ukraine has flourished since the proclamation of independence, fueled by close ties between politicians and oligarchs in a weak justice system. The protests of 2014, which led to the overthrow of President Yanukovych, were mainly caused by the discontent of the people by the enormous corruption and abuse of those in power. However, his removal from power has not yielded results yet.

Speaking last September in Odessa, US Ambassador Jeffrey Payette said that corruption is as dangerous for Ukraine as the support provided by Russia to the rebel movement in the east of the country. During his December visit to Kiev, Vice President Joseph Biden said that corruption "devours Ukraine like a cancer." As an example, Payette cited the arrest imposed in Britain on the illegal accounts of the former Minister of Environment of Ukraine Mykola Zlochevsky (their sum is 23 million dollars). However, the Prosecutor General’s Office stated that the case against the minister was not initiated, and his accounts were unfrozen.

In the last days of his tenure, Shokin dismissed Deputy Prosecutor General David Sakvarelidze, who had previously worked as a prosecutor in Georgia and was promoted to office by President Poroshenko to fight corruption. Shokin had systematically conducted purges in the prosecutor’s office before, freeing himself from reform-oriented prosecutors. Now the duties of the Prosecutor General are performed by the appointee Shokina Yuri Sevruk. It is safe to say that he will continue the practice of Shokin.

Poroshenko, himself a product of the old system, is busy fighting pro-Russian separatists in the east, and he is full of problems associated with increasing political confusion in Kiev, where the government of Arseniy Yatsenyuk hangs in the balance.

It seems that in these circumstances, Poroshenko resigned to corruption, considering that he would have to pay this price in order to save at least some room for maneuver. But the president, the prime minister and the parliament must be made to understand that the International Monetary Fund and donor countries, including the United States, cannot continue to throw money into the swamp of corruption, and that it is time for the government to establish a democratic government that the Ukrainians demand during the protests.

Poroshenko simply cannot allow one of Shokin’s close friends to take his armchair touched by the rot of corruption. He should immediately reinstate Sakvarelidze and begin a broad public discussion about the candidacy of the new prosecutor general, making clear that his task would be to carry out profound reforms with the full support of the government.

          For what I love VO, it is because they are ready to discuss corruption in Ukraine, in the states, and God knows where else, but not in their native country.
          It suggests that we do not have this evil at all, and therefore there is nothing to discuss. Meanwhile, the matter of defense of the service is still at the hearing, min. culture recently became famous ... And we all laugh overseas, how everything is shitty there. It is understandable, Ukrainian corruption for us is much more important for Russians than corruption and Russian theft.

                Continuing the theme ... In our Kostroma region, a certain comrade Slyunyaev (now Albin) was the governor. He merrily and on a large scale invested national hard-earned money in various patriotic and cultural programs and other castles in the air, which contributed to the growth of the regional debt almost threefold (well, for the sake of business, I got into debt, otherwise the babos were let go by the wind). According to the results of the State Duma elections in 2011, despite all the efforts of this citizen, United Russia did not take first place in the region, which caused terrible anal pain in Moscow, after which Comrade Slyunyaev was dismissed and ..... and neither x ... I was not dismissed, and by decree of GDP I was appointed to the post of Minister of Regional Development, on which I repeatedly snatched non-foolish cuffs from the same GDP.
                And now this little body is none other than the vice-governor of St. Petersburg))) Apparently the sickly garters of a guy. So here I am talking about. What order can become in our country if the authorities are shit ... they are shoved from office to office knowing that they are incompetent and there will be no sense from them. Here from such idiots and corruption and inefficient use of den. funds and much more. And they don’t go anywhere, they rule the state to our own advantage.

      On April 1, the TV channel "Inter" (Ukraine) hosted the television show of the disgraced E. Kiselyov "Black Mirror." The topic of Poroshenko's fiasco of the last meeting in Washington was discussed. An extract from the New York Times humiliating for him was read.
      “Now let’s listen to our special correspondent in Washington ...”
      (the correspondent explained that no one would give Poroshenko money until the fall, for sure. But if he fulfills a number of conditions).


      Presenter: And now the guests of the studio can ask the correspondent in Washington in a straight line.
      The microphone picks up one of the deputies registered in the studio and begins to resent the shuzhik.
      And then the funniest thing. The deputy is interrupted by a special correspondent from Washington with the words- Excuse me, but can you in Russian laughing

    And what kind of teapot is it from the times? Poroshenko is busy, it turns out, in the fight against the Donbass, but it doesn’t work to kill several million of his own citizens, that's why there is no time to fight corruption. Well, ummy, these gadgets are even dumber than their dill gadgets.

      For some reason, you forget that they took weapons there before the introduction of the ATO regime. And how do you think you need to fight with those who want to separate from the country. And if tomorrow Tatarstan announces secession, would you also be for the new state?

        What nonsense, dear? In Tatarstan, what, do they prohibit their native language, pump out clean resources? Or from the Donbass gang climbed fat from the Orthodox ukrov to select, they started to shoot? At least to begin with it, it is possible to continue.

          But after all, they did not pump out resources from the Donbass, as you put it cleanly. The region was well maintained. Do not here about the oppressed Donbass. And recall how the war began in the east? The Ukrainian authorities for a long time tried to solve peacefully no matter how they spoke. And amnesties were offered. That was all. But who captured the city halls and police stations? Who waved flags and demanded separation only because someone whose hot head called for not to ban, but simply to remove the Russian language from the business of production. That's all. As for me, what a reason. No matter how they say it, they did not immediately introduce the ATO. Minus as you like. you would rather not look at events through the lens of propaganda.

        Separatism has always been the core of the nationalist policy of the Ukrainian gentry. Learn the story. And therefore, the true separatists are precisely the Ukrainian Power, supported by the West.

          You're right. But then, on the other hand, whom has Russia recognized and who are not to mention the world community. And therefore, the above statement about genuine separatism is not entirely correct. And therefore, separatism is no longer suitable for them. I saw militias. A lot of them are beaten to the head. And it is true.
          and further. We have a lot of shouting about how our people are being dragged away in Ukraine. But why not take them to us. Do not give them at home with us. Why give them a chance to be killed under fire? Why not do it? Yes, because a piece of land and the opportunity to show your superiority over Ukrainians than living people are important to all of you.

            Ahead went two - a thin Petro with his hands tied in front and a tight, squat Major SMERSH. Five soldiers with PCA in their hands walked behind them in a short chain.
            - Comrade Major! Wonders, little left.
            - What am I to you, Bandera? I’m a citizen for you, understand?
            - Having understood, I don’t understand, Citizen Major! Vooon there, behind the hemp, see the smoke? Here is our little one!
            Indeed, behind a large dark stump, a whitish cloud was visible, quickly dissolving in the predawn haze.
            “But you won’t shoot me, Citizen Major?” Is it true? - Petro earnestly looked into the major's eyes.
            - We will not shoot. He promised, then you will live. But a considerable period has been laid for you.
            Petro wanted to laugh joyfully in response, but stopped short and looked warily at the major:
            - Only this .... you immediately throw a grenade into the chimney, citizen major.
            ..........................................
            - Grandpa Petro! Grandpa Petro!
            Petro shook his head and visions disappeared. He sat in a school room in front of second-graders of Lviv high school. Now they looked at him with delighted eyes and waited for a story about the exploits of the old UPA veteran.

Corruption and embezzlement have disappeared? Disappeared lawlessness and lawlessness? They began to teach us correctly, to treat in good faith, did our women give birth more? Did the collectors disappear or did the "state chosen by the people" limit their bribes to 400%? Have you stopped posting videos about beating up our children on YouTube? Are there fewer alcoholics ("dead, finally from burning alcohol")? No longer do drug addicts scour the bushes in search of "bookmarks"? Can't call the girl for an hour? Have kindergartens and schools stopped the practice of extortion from parents? Loads disappeared on the roads? Have the roads themselves started to look good? Have fires stopped in the taiga (in areas with forest cut down and removed in advance)? Have villages and nursing homes stopped burning? Are all settlements provided with the "Gasification of the Village" program? Pensioners quit their jobs and travel around Crimea and Altai (at least)? Wage arrears disappeared (how long will such a production process be possible)? Has the minimum wage and the living wage become the norm in calculating all kinds of payments to everyone without exception? Yeltsin's former entourage, which suddenly grabbed from the treasury, returned everything and disappeared into oblivion (albeit a direct path to their bunks)? Tiger Cupid didn't break Timur's goat?
