Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroisman has called leader of Batkivshchyna party Yuliia Tymoshenko mother of Ukrainian corruption and populism.
He said it at a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday.
“I believe that Yuliia Tymoshenko is mother of Ukraine’s economic weakness, destruction of Ukrainian independence, corruption, populism and inefficiency.
She’s a real [corruption] mother who during long time, 20 years, was doing her utmost to destroy Ukraine. And every time she failed on something, she blamed it on someone else…
Yesterday, I heard some of her remarks at a press conference. They were a complete lie. I understand she strives to get to power. It’s an end in itself for her,” Hroisman said.
Yulia Tymoshenko accused Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman of creating optimal conditions for the corrupt practices to prosper in the country.
Tymoshenko said in an interview to NewsOne TV channel Feb. 14.
The politician reiterated the main reasons why Batkivshchyna’s insisted on the prime minister’s resignation.
“Among other things,this is the large-scale corruption which the whole world is talking about: foreign leaders, members of foreign parliaments, ambassadors. This is the corruption which every Ukrainian is just ashamed of,” Tymoshenko said.
