KIEV, July 24. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is turning his power into dictatorship, the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada, Oleh Lyashko tweeted in Facebook on Friday.
"I can see it quite clearly Petro Poroshenko is turning into Yanukovych [Ukraine’s former President who was compelled to leave the country after the state coup of February 2014 - TASS]," Lyashko said. "Transformation of state power into dictatorship is Ukraine’s permanent tragedy."
He expressed indignation over the fact he was told on Thursday to leave the hall where the National Council for Reforms was holding a session attended by Poroshenko.
"I was forced out of the hall but Poroshenko will be carried out of the Presidential Administration on the forks unless he heeds the people," Lyashko wrote.
He also said that when he asked Poroshenko if he had fulfilled his pre-election promises and had sold Ukraine’s Channel Five TV and other businesses, the president said he had never promised any such things.
"For the sake of Ukraine’s salvation, it’s important to pass a law on impeachment of the president and on provisional parliamentary investigative commission."
