The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine urges to refrain from unfounded accusations against the legislative, executive and judicial authorities of Ukraine in response to the statements of official representatives of foreign states and international organizations on the decision of the Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine on early termination of parliamentary powers of MP from Batkivshchyna faction Serhiy Vlasenko.
The Foreign Ministry’s press service stressed that the court’s ruling on Vlasenko is grounded.
"Under the Article 78 of the Constitution of Ukraine, the people's deputies of Ukraine shall not undertake other activity (other than teaching, research or creative activities).
In connection with this, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry recalled that the decision of the Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine is binding and can not be appealed.
We are surprised at the attempt, in particular of the U.S. Department of State, to give political evaluation to judicial decisions and processes, which lie exclusively within the legal framework. In addition, in Ukraine has not gone unnoticed selective attention only to the case of MP from the opposition. This creates the impression that individual foreign politicians suppose that opposition members can avoid legal responsibility," the statement reads.
