 People Need Grub, not Europe, Regions Deputy

MP from the Party of Regions, Oleksandr Presman is confident that Ukrainians are not interested in what is happening in Europe, they are busy with their own problems.

He expressed this opinion in an interview with Glavnoe.

Presman said that people in his district (the 139th District in Odesa oblast) today "need to complete the reconstruction of kindergartens, schools, they need quality roads." "If I deal with depolitization today, decriminalization, think about the European Union, tomorrow nobody will vote for me," he said.

Presman believes that Olha Herasymiuk is a good example in this respect. "She told me how she worked in PACE. A regular citizen does not care what happens there. He needs grub, work, children's education, apartments for youth. Nobody cares about PACE. They will be happy to resolve their own issues. They have more problems than we have. But we do not meddle with them," said the Regions deputy.

Presman won elections in the 139th district, by a considerable margin ahead of his rivals and Olha Herasymyuk and Yevhen Tsarkov.
