A few days ago, Ukraine shocked a tragic accident on the Staroobukhov highway. The fault of the drunk driver-recidivist killed a whole family of four. The leader of the National Corps Andriy Biletsky wrote about this in his Telegram-channel.
The society demanded Lynch’s trial of the murderer, calls for revising the criminal code. Active citizens staged a rally near the walls of the Verkhovna Rada. But the authorities, as always, cynically used the tragic events for their own benefit.
The Verkhovna Rada voted in the first reading for bill No. 2695, according to which the police receive wider rights and control instruments.
If this bill is passed, the police will have the right to stop any car without any reason. The deputies want to give the police the right to search the car without witnesses, and obligate the drivers to give the documents and to get out of the car. Moreover, this bill does not even provide fines or any other punishment for drunk driving. That is, we are dealing with a cynical police lobby.
