 MP Nayyem set to start Maidan 3.0

The recent resignations of ministers who can not tolerate the corruption-ridden Ukrainian authorities are the first signs of an impending reboot.

Censor.NET reports referring to Poroshenko Bloc MP Mustafa Nayyem's Facebook post, quoted in full below, as translated from Russian.

"It's been more than seven hours after the minister [Abromavicius - ed.] accused the presidential faction deputy chairman of corruption. Do you know what is happening now?

"Perhaps you believe some started to think how to explain it to the public? Or maybe someone decided to apologize, resign, and wait till the investigation is finished? Or you may think they are running about, showing each other the statement of ambassadors?! (Well, because it's about confidence in the entire system, the country, the state, and not in a specific name!) Or perhaps someone up there banged his fist on the table and said, "Enough!"?

"Wrong. They are trying to fix it up. They still believe it is possible to come out dry without losses and pretend that nothing has happened. They sincerely believe that the first joint statement by the ambassadors of donor countries in two years (!) is nothing more than a post on Facebook. Everything will be tackled. "Tomorrow, the sun will rise again, and everything will be as before, you just have to negotiate it, and everything will be fine." The matter is they will not negotiate it with people, or the parliament, or the public, they will do it within their circle.

"First to go was Minister of Infrastructure Pyvovarskyi. Now it's Minister of Economy Aivaras [Abromavicius]. They left not because of the corruption scandals that surrounded them; not because some kind of disaster happened; and not because they are accused of high treason. They quit because while some were trying to at least do something (even if it was inefficient and slow), the others were engaged in embezzlement and fixed games behind their backs.

"The collapse of the government and escape of Cabinet's members from the building on Hrushevskoho [where the government sits - ed.] are the first signs of an impending reboot. I have said it many times and I'll repeat it once again - Maidan 3.0 will not happen on the streets, but in the corridors of power and under the dome of the parliament. And it will be new politicians who will stage it - tired and angry at the fact they were first pushed in the back, called technocrats, and required to carry out reforms, after which they were hogtied by lack of will and reluctance to say goodbye to the old schemes," the MP wrote.

In addition, Nayyem said that EuroOptimists [a group of progressive-thinking politicians in Ukraine's parliament - ed.] supported the statement of Aivaras Abromavicius regarding the disclosure of corruption schemes and appealed to the leadership of the Verkhovna Rada with a request to invite the minister for the next parliamentary session to make a separate report on the known corruption facts.
