Ivan Baloha: "The People's Council has been established in Transcarpathia. The police illegally seized the premises of the Regional Council" (commentary)
The police illegally seized the premises of the Regional Council, - the Chairman of the Regional Council Ivan Baloha said during the extraordinary session.
He said that the Council has not approached the police with a request to guard the building at Narodna Sq. 4 which belongs to territorial communities of the region. "So we have decided to withdraw law enforcement officers from the building of the regional council. Also, we have established the People's Council of Transcarpathia consisting of 30 people who will elect the chairman, two vice-chairmen, and should prepare provisions on the People's Council. 55 deputies voted for this decision. We are Europeans, and so we have shown that it is possible to resolve the situation peacefully. But it does not change our attitude to the President, his political party, and his shameful actions against the Ukrainian people," - Ivan Baloha said.
