Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze: Ukraine’s international partners want to see real steps in fight against corruption rather than govt’s promises

President Zelensky and the ruling majority do not show any political will to resolve the constitutional crisis and return the anti-corruption infrastructure to normal and Zelensky’s empty statements are unconvincing for our international partners. 

This was stated by MP from the European Solidarity faction, head of the Committee on EU Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze.

“I have a feeling that the majority does not have a true political will and votes to return anti-corruption legislation to the legal framework. And that is why this whole process is being delayed,” the deputy said.

Klympush-Tsintsadze noted that European Solidarity offered its solution to the crisis around the CCU, as well as other political forces offered their solutions. In addition, there is a proposal by the Speaker of Parliament Razumkov. “But none of these issues was put on the agenda, in particular because a deputy from the Servant of the People submitted an alternative bill to the initiative of the speaker. And this postponed the consideration of this issue in the Verkhovna Rada,” the committee chairman explained.

The lawmaker said she believes that the creation of another working group in parliament is just a waste of time. 

European Solidarity is ready to work on a solution. We are ready to go to an extraordinary sitting of the Verkhovna Rada to consider these issues, but so far we do not see the readiness of the majority. Without their votes, a sufficient number of votes from the minority and the opposition will not be gained for the decision to be made,” the deputy said.

“Our international partners are looking at action, not reassurance,” Klympush-Tsintsadze said.
