Ilya Kyva: robbery of the army in war time is not just another corruption scandal, but state treason


The case of embezzling defense funds by top officials is not just another corruption scandal, but state treason in war time. The leader of the Socialist Party of Ukraine, Ilya Kyva, said this on the TV channel “NASH”.

“Throughout the war, comrades-in-arms and close partners of Petro Poroshenko plundered, thereby weakening our defense capability. In my understanding, the understanding of the man, who gave the war a year and a half, in the hands of these people the blood of the killed soldiers. Because each hryvna, stolen by this gang, influenced the fact, that an armored personnel carrier did not leave somewhere, a tank was not fully equipped, someone was not taken out of the battlefield. And it is not necessary to call it a corruption scandal, it is state treasonin a war!”, - he said.


According to I.Kyva, despite all the facts, made public by journalists, we can’t wait for a full-fledged investigation.

“Because all these people are the closest associates of the current president, whose godfather is the prosecutor general. They will continue to plunder the country and impose a position convenient for them. Today we should not just talk about it, but ask for help in order to demolish this criminal power, on whose hands the blood of the killed soldiers”, - said the politician.

Speaking about the actions of nationalists with the demand to conduct an investigation and dismiss the guilty, I.Kyva noted, that “today everyone is looking for a scapegoat in the person of the National Corps”.

“I do not condone their actions; those guilty of violating the law must be punished. But first of all today we need to talk about state treason! I do not in any way call for radicalism, but someone has to stop this orgy that destroys our country, our army, allows the enemy to defeat us”, - he concluded.
