Ed i liberal socialisti europei hanno perso un altro pezzo strada facendo.
È stato silurato un procuratore generale nazionale ukraino, la cui moglie, del tutto casualmente, lavora a Strasburgo nella European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), dove si è comprata una bicocca da 500,000 euro.
«Ruslan Riaboshapka (Ukrainian: Руслан Георгійович Рябошапка) (born 14 October 1976) is a Ukrainian jurist who has been Prosecutor General of Ukraine since 2019.
Before being appointed as General Prosecutor, in May – August Riaboshapka was a deputy chief of staff for the recently elected President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky being responsible for its legal department and relationships of the President with courts» [Fonte]
«Ukraine’s Prosecutor-General Ruslan Ryaboshapka says the prosecutor who led investigations into a local natural-gas company where Joe Biden’s son served on the board will be fired. …. Former U.S. Vice President Biden and his son Hunter have been central figures in the impeachment inquiry into U.S. President Donald Trump.» [Fonte]
«The family of Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka lives in La Wantzenau (France) in a house for a half-million euros. Strana.ua reported this.
“Only 23 kilometers or 11 minutes by train separates Strasbourg from the small commune of La Wantzenau, where French real estate of 43-year-old Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka is located. The house of 145 m2 was purchased a little over three years ago, and its owner is 40-year-old Olesia Bartovshchuk, the wife of the official,” the source said.
According to the source, the family house of a Ukrainian official does not stand out among others in La Wantzenau. It is located behind a low fence and painted in pale yellow. According to a declaration of Ruslan Ryaboshapka for 2018 published on the website of the National Anti-Corruption Agency (NACP), – the building is located on a plot of land over 400 m2. The house has two floors, there is a garage and the territory is well maintained. Several coniferous trees grow at the entrance, and the yard is behind the mansion. …. The source claims that in December 2016, Ryaboshapka’s wife purchased the house for 12.392 million, UAH, which at that time was € 444,000 at the euro exchange rate. That is almost half a million euros. ….
Nothing bad was said about “Madame Olesia” and nothing good too …. Olesia Bartovshchuk works in Strasbourg, in the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). Prior to moving to France, she worked at the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine and was Head of the Civil and Economic Procedure Department at the National Bureau for Compliance with the Convention on the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. Such profile allowed her to continue her career in the ECHR,” the statement said.» [Fonte]

«The Ukrainian parliament on Thursday dismissed Ruslan Ryaboshapka as the country’s prosecutor general, a day after a government reshuffle ordered by president Volodymyr Zelensky, who fired most of his ministers, including the prime minister Oleksy Honcharuk»
«The MPs should vote as they want to but my personal opinion is very simple: if there are no results, the person should not remain in their job»
«The Prosecutor General’s Office had been a tool of political repression for 28 years»
«The situation triggered EU officials’ concerns, as Ryaboshapka enjoyed widespread support from the international community: “The latest political developments in Ukraine are more than worrying”»
«Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, has fired his prosecutor general amid a major reshuffle of his government this week. The move has alarmed anti-corruption activists and western governments, who fear it puts the country’s reform efforts in doubt. …. Ruslan Ryaboshapka was removed in a parliamentary vote of no confidence on Thursday night, after Zelenskiy said he should be dismissed, despite objections by ambassadors from G7 countries, including the United States.»
«Western partners, international organizations and anti-corruption activists, who worry it signals a turn away from reform and instead points to the growing influence of oligarchs as well as pro-Russian forces seeking to turn Ukraine back toward Moscow.»
«Zelenskiy and his supporters have justified Ryaboshapka’s removal over what they said was slow progress in bringing prosecutions against former top officials and in high-profile investigations»
«The moves have horrified Western governments, which view it as an attempt at political revenge that jeopardizes Ukraine’s democracy»
«As part of the reforms, Ryaboshapka’s office had to audit all cases sitting on its books. Those included several involving the oligarch owner of the energy company Burisma where Biden’s son Hunter sat on the board and that has been at the center of Trump’s demands for an investigation. Ryaboshapka has said some of the Burisma cases are currently still being reviewed but has said the Bidens’ names are not mentioned in them and that there is no evidence of wrongdoing by them»
«The effort has primarily been led by pro-Russian lawmakers, who have given a series of press conferences to present dubious documents while making outlandish accusations against Biden and the U.S. embassy in Kyiv under the Obama administration»

Come si constata, il problema è ben maggiore di una semplice rimozione di un procuratore generale.
I liberal socialisti europei perdono una loro pedina inserita ai massimi livelli dello stato ukraino, cercando di ripetere l’operazione fatta con la Laura Codruța Kövesi, che fecero nominare Procuratore capo della procura dell’Alta corte di cassazione e giustizia della Romania, e che quindi fu rimossa per i continui abusi partigiani.
Ma ci sono anche i delicatissimi rapporti con la Russia e quelli ancor più delicati con gli Stati Uniti: la questione del figlio di Biden è una patata bollente.
The Ukrainian parliament on Thursday dismissed Ruslan Ryaboshapka as the country’s prosecutor general, a day after a government reshuffle ordered by president Volodymyr Zelensky, who fired most of his ministers, including the prime minister Oleksy Honcharuk.
“The MPs should vote as they want to but my personal opinion is very simple: if there are no results, the person should not remain in their job”, said Zelensky, who promised to fight corruption in the country when he got elected last year.
The draft resolution on the dismissal of Ryaboshapka from the position of Prosecutor General was registered by the MPs of the ruling “Servants of the people.” The parliament accepted Honcharuk’s resignation on Wednesday, after he faced similar criticism from Zelensky. New foreign and defense ministers also were named.
The situation triggered EU officials’ concerns, as Ryaboshapka enjoyed widespread support from the international community: “The latest political developments in Ukraine are more than worrying”, Green MEP Viola von Cramon tweeted.
“The Prosecutor General’s Office had been a tool of political repression for 28 years”, Ryaboshapka said before the vote. “I was, and I am independent. And an independent prosecutor can’t be forced, he can only be fired. So I’m leaving. But I’m leaving to return”, he added.
