Турчинов заявил о "пятой колонне" в Верховной Раде

The NSDC Secretary believes that the people’s deputies staged a “festival for Russian politicians and the media.”

Blocking the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada deputies from the faction of the Union and other radical political forces during the consideration of the question of recognition of Russia as an aggressor and the de-occupation of Donbass is a crime against his own country. This was stated by Secretary of national security and defense Council (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov.

“As soon as members of Self-help saw that in the hall there are voices in order to recognize Russia as an aggressor, and to determine the strategy of de-occupation of the Donbass, they rushed to block the rostrum, tearing the adoption of the law, and having arranged a holiday for the Russian politicians and mass media”, – quoted Turchynov press service of the NSDC.

He noted that the responsibility for the fact that the Verkhovna Rada failed to approve the strategic bill should lie on the “fifth column”, and that the participants of this provocation is no excuse.

As reported Корреспондент.netOctober 5, in the Verkhovna Rada during the discussion of the bill on the reintegration of Donbass was blocked by the tribune MPs Samopomich, Batkivshchyna and Freedom. In the end, the speaker Andriy Parubiy closed the meeting.
