As President, guarantor of the Constitution, rights and freedoms of citizens, I cannot keep silent about the infamous incident, which occurred on Monday at the National Council of Reforms.
The discussion at this platform often becomes tough and heated. Different points of view are expressed there, ideas are produced, compromises are found and reforms are born.
But coarse language and insults are inadmissible at the National Council of Reforms. Especially with xenophobic overtones that affect national dignity, call into question Ukrainian patriotism and offer somebody to "get out of Ukraine".
It was me who invited the international team of reformers to Ukraine, which has already become a truly Ukrainian team not only in terms of passports, but also in terms of spirit. I do not regret about this decision.
On the other hand, struggle against corruption is not a show business. I would like people's deputies and public servants to avoid participation in such "shows".
Not those who speak better, but those who provide evidence base to the National Anti-Corruption Bureau will be more convincing.
It is a new, independent government body formed on the basis of transparent and rigorous selection of director, detectives and prosecutors.
It is high time to switch from the anti-corruption show to the anti-corruption cases.
