Verkhovna Rada plans to start reviewing of the law on oligarchs
The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine plans to begin consideration of the law on oligarchs by the end of the session. It was announced by first deputy head of the “Servant of the People” parliamentary faction, Oleksandr Kornienko, UATV reports.
Kornienko noted that if the people’s deputies don’t support the presidential law on oligarchs, then it will be submitted to a referendum.
At the same time, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that he doesn’t consider the issue of oligarchs worthy of putting it to a referendum, since it is necessary to use the instrument of direct democracy only to resolve really important issues.
“There should be fundamental questions at the referendum. I would not like the issue of the law on oligarchs, there is more than one law that needs to be voted on, so that this particular issue is fundamental for people. I think that we can pass (this question, – ed.) in parliament. And all the deputies, not just individual parties, but the majority MPs, whose names people voted for, all of them should support this law”, – Zelensky said.
A number of politicians and businessmen criticized the presidential bill on oligarchs, thereby demonstrating resistance to de-oligarchization.
