 Deputies Need to Bench Press 120 kg and Know Kickboxing to be Successful in Politics - it is Degrading, Says Yatsenyuk

Head of Batkivschyna faction Arseniy Yatsenyuk believes that Ukrainian politics is degrading.

He voiced this opinion on TVi channel stating that he is not satisfied with the fighting start of the new parliamentary cadence because it turns out that the "to be successful the deputies need to go to the gym more often, bench press 120 kg and train kickboxing to boot."

"It is just destroying the country. Just imagine if the U.S. Congress had what we have in Ukraine today. This is a testament to complete and total degradation," said the politician.

"On one hand, I'm sorry about the way we started this parliament - it was wrong. In terms of European and world standards it is wrong. But we had no other choice," assured Yatsenyuk.

He also said that the case of falsification of the parliamentary elections is still relevant and joked that the regime has not stolen as much from the opposition as was expected.

"I thought they would steal a lot more," said the politician.

"We will create a special investigation commission regarding the vote counts," said Yatsenyuk.
