MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. Snap presidential and parliamentary election should be held in Ukraine, Verkhovna Rada’s former deputy Vladimir Oleinik told a press conference in Moscow on Monday.
"The crisis in Ukraine is political, economic and social," Oleinik, who was nominated for president by Ukraine Salvation Committee, said. "The only solution is to hold snap presidential and parliamentary election. [Petro] Poroshenko has not become Ukraine’s president, he remained the president of Roshen [confectionary company]," he added noting that "Roshen has it great, while Ukraine’s National Bank is going around the world with a begging bowl."
According to Oleinik, Ukraine made a mistake a year ago. "If you ask me how I would have acted right after inauguration — I would have immediately signed a decree on returning forces to places of their permanent deployment. I would have gone to Donetsk and Luhansk, where people are suffering, and asked for forgiveness on my knees from all Ukrainian mothers," he said.
Vladimir Oleinik is a Ukrainian politician, famous lawyer, Verkhovna Rada deputy of 5th, 6th and 7th convocations. He was born in 1957 in Ukraine’s Cherkassy Region.
In 2006, he was elected to the parliament from Yulya Tymoshenko’s Bloc. Since March 2010, he had been member of the Party of Regions and served as deputy chairman of Rada’s committee on industrial and regulatory policy and entrepreneurship.
In December 2014, Ukraine’s General Prosecutor’s Office charged Oleinik was organizing illegal voting in the parliament for "16 January laws" — a package of measures toughening penalties for various offenses. He was put on Ukraine’s wanted list.
