KIEV, July 24. /TASS/. Members of the Center for Corruption Counteraction and AutoMaidan public organizations — a total of about 100 people — have held a rally in the Ukrainian capital on Friday to demand the resignation of Ukraine’s Prosecutor-General Viktor Shokin, a TASS correspondent reports.
The protesters who gathered outside of the Ukrainian Prosecutor-General’s Office also demanded an official investigation of the activities of two Prosecutor-General’s deputies — Volodymyr Guzyr and Yury Stolyarchuk — with their subsequent dismissal from Ukraine’s law enforcement bodies. They demanded, in particular, the appointment of David Sakvarilidze who is currently a Deputy Prosecutor-General to the position of the Ukrainian Prosecutor-General. The demonstrators said Sakvarilidze was a true patriot who is capable of leading the struggle against corruption in the country.
Spokesman for the AvtoMaidan public organization Alexey Gritsenko noted that "Shokin could not be entrusted with the fight against corruption in the top echelons of power and the lustration of the prosecutor’s office." "He belongs to the old system and must resign," Gritsenko added.
On Wednesday, leader of Ukraine’s Radical Party Oleh Lyashko and many other parliamentarians came to the Prosecutor General’s Office to demand Shokin’s resignation. They also demanded that the intimidation of lawmakers be stopped, and that those guilty of separatism be brought to justice and political prisoners be released. According to Lyashko, 112 signatures of lawmakers have been collected out of 150 signatures required for putting the issue on the parliament’s agenda.
