One of the leaders of the Hungarian radical party "Jobbik" Istvan Sawai was banned from entering Ukraine for five years.

This was reported by the Mukachevo.net citing the party site alfahir.hu.

Sawai said the decision of the Ukrainian government has no reason and justification. After all, it concerns the restriction of his personal life as his wife is from Transcarpathia, she is a local Hungarian and a citizen of Ukraine.

A similar fate befell another representative of "Jobbik" - Lorant Gegedush. The latter found out that only when trying to cross the border. However, the politician received no explanations on the matter.

Previously, several party members, including Sawai, were banned from entering Romania for a period of one year.

Recall that Sawai has repeatedly stated that the aim of the "Jobbik" party is the creation of Rusyn-Hungarian autonomy in Transcarpathia. The party representatives were present as official observers at the "referendum" in Crimea and "elections" in the self-proclaimed republics in the Donbas.

"In June 2012, Nestor Shufrich, holding the post of Deputy Secretary of the National Security Council, offered me $ 3 million for running in Prylutsky constituency against Rudkovsky, with whom he had business conflict. I told him to go to hell and ran in Bakhmatsky constituency and won," - Lyashko said.

"Speak the truth, you bastard. Where did you get the money?" - Lyashko said, addressing Shufrich.

In turn, Shufrich said that Lyashko himself had asked 3 to 5 million dollars and was denied.

The Chairman of the Regional Council proposes to reduce the number of members of local councils

The Chairman of the Regional Council proposes to reduce the number of members of local councils

The Regional Council Chairman Volodymyr Chubriko advocates that the number of the local councils deputies to be elected in the elections in 2015 should be reduced. The Chairman said that during a press conference.

"The number of deputies of local councils should definitely be reduced. The ideal number for regional councils is 90 deputies, and depending on the electoral system, even less. And for Uzhgorod city council, 40 deputies would be quite enough"- Volodymyr Chubirko suggests.

Also, the Chairman of the Regional Council believes that the next regular elections to local councils should take place in autumn, after the decentralization of power.

"Unfortunately, the government has made ​​no real steps for decentralization. Communities should be granted the rights and opportunity to realize these rights. Currently, local councils have almost no influence on the budget, because it is formed in Kyiv. It is necessary to complete decentralization and to hold elections in autumn. But with the current pace of the Verkhovna Rada regarding amendments to the Constitution, it is doubtful that MPs will make it by autumn. Elections must be held under the new rules. Electoral system should be updated not according to the needs of the present but those of the future, as they do in Europe. Elections to regional councils should be held with open party lists. In lower level councils, for the sake of community representation, there should be either mixed or majoritarian electoral system. But people must have a responsible attitude to elections and choose those who will change their lives," - Volodymyr Chubirko said.
