Andrey Bayevsky comments on statement of Ukrainian Military Prosecutor Matios about necessity to give country’s inhabitants a polygraph test
The intention of the Chief Military Prosecutor of Ukraine Anatoly Matios to polygraph the country’s population in order to check for cooperation with the DPR and LPR’s authorities is absurd and delusional bluff. The Chairman of the Committee of the DPR’s People’s Council on Civil and Arbitration Legislation Andrey Bayevsky shared this opinion with the Donetsk News Agency.
ʺA proposal made by Matios should not be taken seriously, because it is his another delusion. It is similar to a case when he allegedly personally found grenades in the bag of Nadezhda Savchenko. Matios regularly declares that every Ukrainian must have a weapon, but immediately complains that tens of thousands of weapons that were registered by the AFU have been lost and there are about 400 thousand unregistered weapons in the country,ʺ the deputy said.
According to him, the Ukrainian Prosecutor’s Office is going to take part in the embezzlement of public funds, therefore it is preparing a coverage opportunity for its subsequent actions at the moment.
ʺFrom the point of view of law enforcement practice, it is necessary to understand that there is no reason to be guided by the results of polygraph examination in the legal sense. Such a test was not and cannot be a ground for restriction of rights either from the standpoint of legislation or medicine. The offer to use such checks even under the current Ukrainian legislation will be a serious legal conflict, which once again demonstrates to us extremely low professional level of the leadership of the Ukrainian Prosecutor’s Office.
Such projects are most frequently based on primitive corrupt motivations. It is obvious that the Ukrainian Prosecutor’s Office is actively preparing to reach a new level of embezzlement of funds from the state budget under cover of any, even the most delusional ideas. One can recall the similar bluff of Yulia Timoshenko, who announced her intention to demand from Russia €100 billion as compensation for losing Donbass and Crimea,ʺ Bayevsky noted.
He added that it is natural and even to the liking of Ukrainian officials to create legal paradoxes for no reason at all and “sell the bear`s skin before one has caught the bear”.
