Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman said that individual law enforcement officers prepared against him and the government of provocation.
He said this during a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on Wednesday.
According to him, despite the fact that a law was passed “masks-show stop”, which was supposed to reduce the pressure on the business by law enforcement officers, only certain regions of it adhere to only 20-30%.
He added that he supports law enforcement officers who protect state sovereignty, but despises those who destroy the economy.
“I would ask that I personally have heard today. All those who protect the illegal business, all those who protect the illegal smuggling, illegal access of goods to the Ukrainian market. I stress that they carry today, shoulder straps and are the current law enforcement system,” – said Groisman.
“I know what you are discussing my words, my position on this matter and my inflexibility. I know that you are preparing a provocation against the Prime Minister, the government and the Ministers,” the Prime Minister added.
He noted that law enforcement officers must first of all fill the state coffers and to serve the state, not “the Prime Minister or anyone else.”
Groisman also said that it plans to amend the law “masks-show stop”, which will strengthen the responsibility for those who pressure on business, and added that in the near future will address the Parliament with a request to adopt these changes.
The Prime Minister said he was ready to purge the police, the Prosecutor’s office, security Service and other law enforcement agencies.
