The Committee of Citizens of Ukraine categorically condemns today’s expulsion of Mikhail Saakashvili from Ukraine to the territory of Poland. This shameful and cowardly act of the incumbent President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko regarding the spiritual leader of the people’s resistance to the regime of total corruption in Ukraine once again during the current government discredited Ukraine in the eyes of the civilized world and again created her reputation as a wild, backward, medieval country in which the ruling regime feudal type actively and purposefully builds in the center of Europe the personal preserve of the corruption mafia Petro Poroshenko, grossly suppressing any hotbeds of political resistance detecting and dissent and completely ignoring all the principles of the rule of law.
The Committee of Citizens of Ukraine is extremely concerned by the fact of total corruption of all branches of the current government, which became possible in recent years thanks to the connivance and direct participation of President Poroshenko in it.
The Committee of Citizens of Ukraine is extremely concerned about the numerous reports of the media (with credible references to official government sources) about the deprivation of Mikhail Saakashvili Ukrainian citizenship.
Committee of citizens of Ukraine considers undertaken by the authorities this week’s attack on the studio Savik Shuster unacceptable violation of democracy. Such actions of the government say that the authorities intend to completely suppress all the centers of freedom of speech in Ukraine, as well as to remove from the air all channels unsanctioned criticism of government policy. In fact, today in Ukraine there is a speech about the complete suppression of dissent and trying to create in our country a totalitarian system of government.
Committee of citizens of Ukraine is extremely concerned about the citizens of Ukraine political repression against the opposition party “UKROP” and its leader Gennady Korban. Given that the current government repression made directly during the elections, we can say that the president of Poroshenko, whom we place full responsibility for these events, now seeks to destroy the very foundation of Ukrainian democratic system.
