Klitschko: “Amnesty for those involved in torture and murder is out of the question”

Amnesty cannot be applied to people involved in tortures and murders, leader of UDAR Vitali Klitschko said in comments to journalists on the sidelines of the Parliament, commenting on the absence of the amnesty bill in today’s agenda.

"This question should have been considered last week, and we insisted on it. But after horrific accidents, when local deputies are found dead, and separatists torture people, I find it hard to talk about amnesty for those involved in murder and tortures," Vitali Klitschko stressed.

However, he underlined that participation in peaceful rallies is not subject to any harassment or criminal liability. "Every person has a right to participate in peaceful demonstrations and express their views," UDAR leader pointed out.

When asked about the effectiveness of the counter-terrorist operation in the East, Klitschko said that it is inefficient. “In the nearest future, we need to stabilize the situation. The more we pull the time, the more unstable situation in the country is. Peoples seize buildings and put forward strange demands. Many of them have questionable background. It is unclear how so many weapons ended up in their hands."

The politician said that MPs are ready to discuss granting additional powers to local authorities and budget decentralization, but there can be no talks about separation of some regions of Ukraine and their inclusion into a foreign state.
