луценко

Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yurii Lutsenko reminded MP Boryslav Rozenblat, Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB), the text of the oath of a people's deputy of Ukraine.

He said during the session of the regulation committee of the Verkhovna Rada, during which a PGO motion to lift immunity, prosecute and arrest MP Rozenblat is being discussed on July 7, Censor.NET correspondent reports.

"Let me address you, Boryslav Solomonovych [Rozenblat - ed.], not as a law enforcer. I would like to remind you your people's deputy oath. It sounds like this: "I swear fealty to Ukraine; I oblige to act in support of sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, take care of my country and prosperity of the Ukrainian people. I swear to abide by the Constitution of Ukraine and laws of Ukraine, to fulfill my duties in the interests of my compatriots."

"Boryslav Solomonovych, as your acquaintance I would advise you to vacate your MP seat today, as I can hardly imagine a bigger disgrace for the Zhytomyr region, for the PPB faction, for the Verkhovna Rada, for the entire government," Lutsenko said.
