Kolesnikov as the politician lost his immunity

For the removal of immunity from Dmytro Kolesnikov voted only 163 deputies in the 226 necessary.

The Verkhovna Rada at a meeting on Tuesday, 16 October, refused to abolish the immunity of MP from the faction of the Opposition bloc, Dmitry Kolesnikov.

For this decision at the session hall there are only 163 votes.

According to Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko, Kolesnikov signed the documents that led to illegal alienation of state property in the amount of 16.7 million. In the GPU are seen in its actions signs of violation of part 2 of article 364 of the Criminal code (Abuse of power or official position, if this caused grave consequences).

“I cannot blame and do not blame the master of the people’s Deputy in the privatization of state-owned enterprises. We blame it figuratively that he opened the gate for this, provided the legal possibility of further criminal acts of other officials instead of to guard the property entrusted to him, which is of strategic importance,” – said Lutsenko.

For its part, Kolesnikov has declared that has no relation to the alienation of state property.

“The property of the Institute of state property for its lease was not eliminated. Any decisions concerning change of ownership of me was not taken. Since December 2012 I have worked as a Chairman of regional state administration. And all the events that leads the conversation the Prosecutor’s office was in 2013,” – said Kolesnikov.

“It’s a big shame of the Ukrainian Parliament – the vote that took place today,” – said the head of the Parliament Andrei Parubiy, commenting on the vote.

Earlier today deputies have refused to deprive of inviolability of another representative of the opposition bloc Alexander Vilkul.
