Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy does not match the rank of a statesman of the highest rank. Such opinion on air of TV channel “112 Ukraine” stated the Minister of transport and communication of Ukraine in 2005, Yevhen Chervonenko, commenting on the statement Parubiy in the television broadcast, when he referred to the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, the biggest practitioner in the matter of direct democracy.
“I Parubiy. “Seem” and “to be” is two big differences. It does not correspond to the rank of a statesman of the highest rank, no matter what suit and tie he wasn’t wearing” – shared his opinion of the politician.
“He had no right at all to say it. From the lips of statesmen, in any interpretation example of Hitler, he correctly answered about Switzerland, is like a slap in the face, after which not discussed the resignation with an apology,” – said Chervonenko.
Note, Viktor Medvedchuk commented on this statement: “Mr. Parubiy, who said that he studied direct democracy “on a scientific level”, calling Adolf Hitler “the greatest man who practiced direct democracy” will be useful to know that a model of direct democracy is Switzerland, not Hitler’s Germany. Possibly to Parubiy and the popular front, Hitler is an example of “direct democracy”. That is the “democracy” (by the way, harassment of dissidents) embody the “veterans”. In any democratic country after such a statement the speaker is obliged to resign or to dismiss him should the Parliament. Especially since the cadence of the popular front ends, and with such figures as Bourbaki, Levus, knyazhitsky, Vladimir Vysotsky and paruby, no chance to get into the next Parliament he has no” – writes Medvedchuk.
