Моменты 2016 года, когда украинцам было мучительно стыдно. Или нет

From time to time in the past year, reading the news, have the desire to stuff your face and whisper, “How embarrassing!” And the most shocking antics of the domestic representatives of different branches of government fall on the strip of the European press. Sometimes it was a lack of restraint, sometimes cheating or poor judgment, even banal incompetence. Distinguished, however, is not only well-known personalities, the common people also “annealed”.

Pogroms banks

Of course, the riots are not only in Ukraine. But if in Greece, France or the United States during the riot, the ringleaders do not understand particularly where flying stones and under the hand of vandals gets everything – shops, and banks, that our crowds are gently and smoothly. It seems that to destroy the Russian banks in Kiev, the dates associated with the memory of hundreds of Heaven, will soon become a bad tradition.

The Appointment Of Lutsenko

Separately, I want to remember the process of appointment of the current Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko. Acted quickly and smoothly – meeting on 12 may has a chance to make history.

The difficulty with the appointment of Lutsenko was in the professional requirements for the position. But it does not matter, if it is necessary, you can tighten and quickly to change the law. And then very, very fast to print the newspaper, to appoint the attorney General, to sign the decree. And all this in one day. Truly the wonders of high-speed printing demonstrated “Voice of Ukraine”. But why not do it all like human beings, with a difference of at least the decency of a few days? And because if you don’t remember almost three months the work of Parliament was blocked by all and Sundry, and this next item.

The war for the tribune

The tribune and the VR Presidium are blocked by deputies from the RPL and the “Fatherland”, the summer of 2016

The palm in the war for the podium of the main legislative body of the country, of course, need to give the radicals, they are about three months honestly served around her, are sitting on the red carpet about of the Presidium of the Verkhovna Rada. At the beginning of July to RPL joined “Fatherland” and the sound of battle.

By 6 July the meeting of Parliament was carried out according to this scheme: the radicals at the podium, the bills idea, and then vote. But the plenary week the Alliance’s blockers decided to go on the offensive, demanding the lowering of tariffs and the establishment of VSC relative to offshore of senior politicians. In the morning, MPs took not only the podium, but the chair Andriy Parubiy, Irina Gerashchenko and Oksana Syroid.

Late in the half hour Parubiy came in, he was even allowed into the chair to count a two-minute meeting, the speaker was terrible, beat his fist on the table and reminded the deputies about the war. And on the left.

But on 7 July, the coalition gave battle to the blockers, or simply start to act on the principle “first come, first – serve”, that is, tribune. Military officers of the PPB and the PF in uniform and took the rostrum and the Presidium, sported epaulets and did not allow the failure of the meeting. That day the Parliament was able to create special operations Forces and accept a few defense laws.

Passion on the podium ended with the end of the session, the requirements of RPL and “Fatherland” were not met, they did so by not achieved, it was worth it to make this whole kindergarten with competition for a place on the Mat.

The parliamentary fight club

The fight between parliamentarians for us no longer news, but some of them are already interested in the European press, because there really is something to see. In the ring, of course, to produce early, but if it goes on and do without early elections by the end of the term of individual MPs without a piece of bread does not remain, even if they will not be reelected.

LGBT pride parade and human rights

What happened in Kiev, June 12 – it’s not a gay pride parade in the conventional sense, it’s equality March for human rights, which was held under unprecedented security police and under the threat of right-wing radicals. But not only radical movement resented the action, the society was divided, and at the household level. “They’re let in the house that I want, I do, no one is oppressed” – said the townsfolk.

Equality March in Kiev,12 Jun 2016

Protesters surrounded the law enforcement, security measures were unprecedented, and all because on the eve of a number of organizations and individual public entities promised to turn participants into “a bloody mess”. It was a horrendous debate, which essentially boils down to the fact that to walk the streets and March with a reminder about human rights in Kiev – it is dangerous.

But the problem in Ukraine not only with the radicals, still with a kind of primitive horror of respectable men in expensive suits in the Parliament are the words “gender” and “sexual orientation”, which was the refusal of the Parliament to ratify the Council of Europe Convention on combating domestic violence. Not like MPs these two definitions, argued, “the Ukrainian morals”. Defended the ties as I could.

The pogrom of “inter” and other media

Burn channel was attempted back in June, then unknown persons set fire to the entrance to the building of “inter” for Demetrius.

In General, fought for free speech struggles, spreading European values.

The President Of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko

Here already questions to the professionalism of the team of the presidential administration. How could it happen that the President of the country became a victim of the media in the implementation of the alleged call at the highest level. Surely no one checks who is calling the head of state and how to contact the guarantor can be anyone?

“Let me speak with Mr. Poroshenko, I’m President of Zambia!” – and you’ll have access to the ears of the first person to ask “inconvenient” questions about Putin, and about Minsk, about the Donbass, and about the factory in Lipetsk. While the record shows that before the conversation, the authenticity of the call was verified. Can it be so poorly tested?

Publication in the Daily Mail about detected online photo Deputy Minister of internal Affairs of Ukraine Anastasia Deev

The appointment of Deputy Minister of internal Affairs Anastasia Deev was accompanied by a scandal with the publication of her Nude photos, loud accusations of rigging biography and misconduct. Questions have arisen not so much because of her racy pictures that appeared on the pages of the world press, and idle speculation about her relationship with Avawam how search a 10-year experience at the age of 24.

In addition, Deyev 10 Nov appointed not on procedure, but rather at the request Avakov. And in a month it became known about the allowances of a young woman.

It’s unclear what is worse – the pictures, Ukrainian Deputy Minister with retouch in interesting places, or the realization that the Deputy Minister may designate in that way.

The Ministry, which is responsible for the safety of citizens, the whole last year of going wrong: on the one hand reports about the success of the reforms, and on the other the authors of these changes go, high-profile crimes remain unsolved, and in the pages of the press-services of the regional offices and then there are reports about the rescued swans, about the boy who stole the jacket. Lightly somehow.

Jokes must be in place

Vladimir Zelensky

Jokes must be appropriate, and this year, this simple truth reminded the artists of “95 quarter” during a speech in Jurmala. Comparing credit policy of Ukraine with the behavior of a porn actress, actors wanted to laugh at the government. What came of it?

The joke did not understand and artists resulted in resentment, because the phrase is not “the government”, not “the Cabinet”, specifically “Ukraine, frankly, between us, recalls the actress of German films for adults.” That is a country.

And subsequent acquittal of Vladimir Zelensky and his colleagues could not smooth this nasty feeling that the country poured mud right in front of the citizens of one of the main partners. However, it inherited not only the country but also the highest levels of government, but that we have no surprise.

The performance of the national team of Ukraine for Euro 2016

Another item on the program is a performance of Ukrainian players for Euro 2016 – a single victory or even a draw, no point is scored!
