#Commentary of Ekaterina Martyanova on public reaction to Poroshenko’s appeal to Verkhovna Rada

On September 7, Pyotr Poroshenko delivered an annual message to the Verkhovna Rada, which caused a pronounced negative reaction among some Ukrainian deputies, public figures and ordinary citizens of the country.

Some members of the Verkhovna Rada used quite various words to describe this speech: “cynical,” “pharisaism,” “pre-election speech,” “exceptionally negative,” and so on. The rare case when one can agree with the Ukrainian parliamentarians. And how can you call such statements by Poroshenko other than nonsense, “because of Russia, 10 thousand Ukrainians died”, “Russia is a greater threat than ISIS” (with a reference to McCain), “the aggressor country began to swing the situation from the middle of the country “. Poroshenko then criticized himself, apparently without realizing it: “One of the most dangerous challenges is populism.”

Also, the president of Ukraine outlined the prospects for further sale of Ukraine as wholesale and retail: “The land market and privatization are the two most reliable ways to quickly attract a worthy amount of investments to Ukraine”, while at the same time calming the skeptics and fighters for the moratorium on the sale of land: saying, let’s forbid selling apartments, maybe there will be someone who will buy everything.

Even the Ukrainian media most devoted to the president have posted critical articles with bold headlines: “Mr. President, stop lying!”

When will “enough” sound from ordinary people to the Ukrainian authorities? This is what the Donbass said in 2014, and when it was not heard, it shut itself off from the predictable madness, the victim of which is now a simple Ukrainian people.
