People's deputies Serhiy Leshchenko and Svitlana Zalishchuk have stated their withdrawal from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction. The parliamentarians reported this on their Facebook pages.
"I wrote a statement of withdrawal from the PPB faction. People often asked why I am not leaving. I believe that the mandate is not a slave ticket. Over the past four years, the mandate has made it possible to fight for important laws, important matters. For example, the law on anti-corruption court… Further I do not see the possibility and sense to have any attachment to this abbreviation. The robbing of soldiers is beyond humanity", - Svitlana Zalishchuk wrote.
Serhiy Leshchenko also posted a statement asking head of the PPB Artur Gerasimov to exclude him from the presidential faction.
Earlier, people's deputy Mustafa Nayyem declared his desire to withdraw from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction.
