Party of Regions not to support President’s anti-crisis draft law

The faction of the Party of Regions will not support the President’s draft law on reducing the world financial crisis influence.According to UNIAN, MP Mykola Azarov claimed this in the chamber today.

He stressed that this daft law will not solve current problems in Ukraine. According to him, in 2008, as well as in 2005, when Yulia Tymoshenko also was the Prime Minister, everything began “with populist payments, with restricting economics crediting, with administrative struggle against prices, hryvnia revaluation, etc.” The MP blames the Yulia Tymoshenko’s government for the current situation in the country.

According to M.Azarov, as early as in September, the level of world investor’s distrust to government’s policy soared by several times. “When the government put for the Verkhovna Rada`s consideration its draft state budget for 2009 in September, all world investors gasped. The budget indicated that the government did not understand the conditions under which it worked,” M.Azarov said.

President of Russia and not President of Ukraine will take up a question of the Faina

Members of the Legislative assembly of St. Petersburg asked the President of the Russian federation Dmitry Medvedev to take over the control situation with the Faina ship of Ukraine seized by pirates of Somalia, according to the RBK.

As reported, the Faina was captured by pirates on September 25 with all the crew of 17 Ukrainians, 3 Russian  and 1 citizen of Latvia.

The ship followed to Kenya with a cargo of weapons.

As a reminder, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine delivered a statement that according to the international practice, in case of capturing a ship by pirates the state structures do not participate in direct negotiations with pirates.”

The members of the Legislative assembly believe that such position proves feebleness of the power. According to Taras Stetskiv from OU-PSD, only Ombudsman of Ukraine Nina Karpachova is taking up this question in the country at the state level.

Leader of the National Union “Svoboda” Oleh Tyahnybok believes that Ukrainian power acts in an inefficient way showing complete disregard to the fortune of our compatriots.

“It is simply preposterous that the state do no attempts to pay ransom for its mariners or deliberate them by force. There are hundreds and thousands armed people in uniform in our country, and they are unable to carry out a military operation against Somalia pirates,” noted in his comment the leader of the National political party “Brotherhood” Dmytro Korchynskyi.
