Batkivshchyna Party Leader Yulia Tymoshenko is calling for Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman and his entourage, together with the previous President, Petro Poroshenko, to be held responsible for corruption which led to the impoverishment of Ukrainian families.

“Groysman and his entourage, as well as Poroshenko and his entourage, will have to account for all the corruption they have committed in the country,” Yulia Tymoshenko said on channel NewsOne.

She said that Volodymyr Groysman’s claim that Poroshenko’s system prevented him from implementing important decisions is “manipulation of people’s consciousness.”

“He said an interesting thing – that Poroshenko prevented him from working all these years. If now nobody is interfering and he has become an independent person, then he should at least reduce tariffs, and also remove all the corrupt schemes that they, together with Petro Oleksiyovych, launched,” said the leader of Batkivshchyna.

The politician also urged the head of the Cabinet of Ministers to finally adopt in Parliament “decisions in favor of people that were not passed for years.” And also reinstate 135 repealed laws that will ease life for large families, Afghan War veterans, Chernobyl victims, invalids, and children of war.

“Let him renew all these laws and show that he is independent. Unfortunately, they are all one corrupt system,” said Yulia Tymoshenko.

She called Volodymyr Groysman a “screw in Poroshenko’s large corrupt system.”

“Groysman is the right kidney of Petro Oleksiyovych. He was, is and will be for as long as he exists in politics,” concluded Yulia Tymoshenko.
