In a message posted on his Facebook page, Mikhail Saakashvili called Aivaras Abromyavichus’s decision to resign ‘an act of a brave man’.
“That is an act of a brave man. Me and Aivaras Abromyavichus had a long talk yesterday and he told me a lot of interesting things. Isn’t it sad that Lithuanian and Georgian nationals had to take it upon themselves to protect the country from corrupt individuals who, though born in Ukraine, made it to the top and work to the country’s detriment? Me and Aivaras have been sitting on the Council for Reforming Public Companies, and it was Aivaras who suggested that I be appointed its Chairman. I would like to confirm that all of our initiatives on replacing heads of public companies have been torpedoed by the Prime Minister himself who has been advised to do so by Igor Kononenko, one of the leaders of the Pyotr Poroshenko Block, and several influential parliamentary groups.
I hope that on February 16 Ukrainian MPs will muster enough courage not only to dismiss the government but also make sure that the next government is fully protected from the unholy influence exerted by pro-presidential, pro-prime-ministerial or any other faction,” said Saakashvili.
Saakashvili also voiced his confidence that the major parliamentary factions ‘have enough non-corrupt MPs to initiate the purgation process.
