“Retirement of officials, including the head of the NBU Valeria Hontareva, show only the need to reduce tension in society, which was the result of extortionate poliсy of power. Authorities deliberately chooses a model of such behavior to retain power, and they will continue to do this. Therefore, there is no hope for early elections”, – said the leader of the European Party of Ukraine Mykola Katerynchuk on one of the TV channels.
“The political environment in Ukraine divided into two groups according to their rhetoric. On the one hand, there are politicians and activists who speak about the real situation in Ukraine, and on the other hand – supporters of the President who are trying to convince everyone that there are no problems in Ukraine, and the President and the government work for people. While the President of Ukraine is Petro Poroshenko, he will be the head of the NBU, the Chairman of the State Property Fund of Ukraine, the head of the State Fiscal Service of Ukrine and so on. The result will be the same, no matter who takes the vacant positions”, – said Mykola Katerynchuk.
“But certainly such reshuffle will fulfill its function, and will allow authorities to keep their seats for one or two years. During this time, it is possible to set control over the media, destroy the opposition, and finally usurp power, as it recently happened in Turkey. The power will win, not the Ukrainians. So we have to prevent a situation in which Ukraine will come down from the democratic path”, – he added.
