 "Mosiichuk's activities discredit him, while arrest warrant issued with violation of regulations discredits the parliament," - Butusov commented on MP’s arrest

Activities by the Radical Party MP Ihor Mosiichuk must be considered by the court according to Ukrainian legislation.

Censor.NET Chief Editor Yurii Butusov said on air of a talk show.

In his opinion, it is necessary to fully comply with all the legal procedures no matter whether the case is a high-profile one or how famous the person who has committed it is.

Butusov also said: "On the other hand it is completely unacceptable when it appears that state authorities openly encourage violation of the law, justify it; when our speaker Hroisman says that it is possible to violate the regulations, it discredits the entire parliamentary system.

"If the president does not give an assessment to this situation, it would be a very bad precedent for the power," Butusov said.
