Deputies from the BYuT-Batkivshchyna faction are collecting signatures for the consideration in the Verkhovna Rada of the question of the dismissal of Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka and his first deputy Renat Kuzmin.

The head of the faction, Andriy Kozhemyakin, announced this at a meeting of the parliament's conciliatory council on Monday, UKRINFORM reports.

"We are collecting signatures regarding the dismissal of the leadership of the Prosecutor General's Office. Pshonka and Kuzmin must be dismissed," Kozhemyakin said.

He accused the Prosecutor General's Office of its desire to sentence former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko to life imprisonment. "The leadership of the Prosecutor General's Office is trying to accuse Tymoshenko of the most heinous crime and mortal sin - murder, but their sole desire actually is the life imprisonment of Tymoshenko," he said.

Kozhemyakin said that in this regard, the BYuT-Batkivshchyna faction had demanded that the Prosecutor General's Office immediately report to parliament on Tymoshenko's alleged involvement in the killing of Ukrainian MP Yevhen Shcherban.

The politician said that law enforcement agencies in Ukraine should investigate crimes that were committed in the 1990s in the Donbas, rather than engage in "the massacre of political opponents." "We propose establishing an ad hoc commission in parliament to investigate massacres in Donetsk, as well as the killing of Yevhen Shcherban and Yevhen Kushnariov," Kozhemyakin said.
