Batkivshchyna faction leader Yulia Tymoshenko has urged the Verkhovna Rada to support draft law №5059 on the prohibition of the confiscation of housing if the owner has unpaid housing and utility bills.
“Collection agencies have swept the country and now gangs are visiting every family and demanding from them what little they have left. Therefore, I ask that we consider our draft law №5059 on the prohibition of the the confiscation of housing. Let’s protect people,” Yulia Tymoshenko said during today’s meeting of the parliament coordination board of heads of factions and chairs of committees.
According to the parliamentarian, draft law №5059 will protect those people who, because of the unreasonable utility tariffs set by the authorities, cannot pay for the services used. She was also outraged by the scale of the problem and urged the government to stop its terror against the population and for parliament to respond appropriately.
“Under no other president has there been such terror against villagers, agrarians and business owners. Why is parliament not reacting to this situation?” Yulia Tymoshenko said.
