Martsinkiv is not the first time distinguished by scandalous statements
The mayor, Martsinkiv, threatened city council employees with layoffs for refusing to be vaccinated.
The Human Rights Ombudsman of the Verkhovna Rada Lyudmila Denisova appealed to the Mayor of Ivano-Frankivsk Ruslan Martsinkiv, who threatened subordinate with dismissal for refusing to vaccinate. This was reported by the press service of the Ombudsman.
In a letter to the mayor, Denisova noted the obligation to comply with the Constitution, which guarantees the right of everyone to work and protection from illegal dismissal.
According to the order of the Ministry of Health, vaccination against coronavirus is voluntary for all population groups and professional groups, and the Labor Code prohibits direct or indirect restriction of workers’ rights, including for health reasons, the Ombudsman recalled.
In addition, PACE believes that no one can be subjected to political, social or other pressure to get vaccinated. PACE also calls on citizens to be informed that vaccination is not compulsory.
