Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmitry Razumkov believes that during the consideration of the law about oligarchs the deputies were “deliberately misled.”

As a UNIAN correspondent reports, he said this on the air of one of the Ukrainian TV channels.

Answering the question about his absence during the voting for the law on oligarchs, Razumkov assessed what was happening in the session hall of the Verkhovna Rada as “very bad.”

“The situation did not get out of control, it got out of the law,” he said.

It is about which body – the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption or the National Security and Defense Council – decides on recognizing a person as an oligarch.

“Due to the fact that an incomprehensible procedure was applied for me, because they combined some articles of the regulations that do not combine with each other, which contradict other articles … They held the vote that they held. And I am deeply convinced, I am about this I have already told my colleagues that, in my opinion, the deputies were deliberately misled, since those who proposed this procedure, those who put it to the vote, did not vote for it themselves, “Razumkov said.

To clarify whether he means the first vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Ruslan Stefanchuk, the head of the parliament said: “I mean both Ruslan Alekseevich Stefanchuk and Fyodor Vladimirovich Venislavsky, who was the rapporteur on this law. And Stefanchuk was presiding.”

When asked why, according to the speaker, they did not vote for the law, he said: “I think that understanding that there will be consequences after this.”

Razumkov said that on the situation around this law, opposition representatives have already written statements to the State Bureau of Investigation and the Office of the Prosecutor General.

The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada believes that the current situation is “an unprofessional approach to the preparation and conduct of this issue.”

“I repeat once again: I think that the deputies were misled with the procedure for consideration … If we are talking about what happened, I am sure that it happened due to haste. And I warned about it,” Razumkov added …

He assured that he would do everything in his power to ensure that this law in “the correct version, which was voted by the Verkhovna Rada, was issued by the Verkhovna Rada and sent to the president for signature.”

Oligarchs law

As UNIAN reported earlier, on September 23 the Verkhovna Rada adopted a presidential law

“On the prevention of threats to national security associated with the excessive influence of persons with significant economic and political weight in public life (oligarchs)” (No. 5599).

It was considered according to a special procedure and only 13 amendments out of the submitted 1,270 were considered.

The deputies, dissatisfied with the special procedure for considering the bill, according to which they will not have the opportunity to submit their amendments to the bill for consideration, signed a statement to dismiss First Deputy Speaker of the Parliament Ruslan Stefanchuk from the plenary session. However, BP refused to do this.

On September 24, 12 draft resolutions were registered in the Verkhovna Rada, which propose to cancel the decision of the Verkhovna Rada on the adoption of this law, thereby blocking the possibility of its signing. The authors of 11 of them are representatives of the European Solidarity faction, and the 12th – representatives of the Opposition Platform – For Life.

As you know, until such draft resolutions are considered and rejected by the parliament, the law they concern cannot be signed by the chairman of the parliament and submitted to the president for signature.
