"The present prize system of Ukraine sputtered out", - so the vice-chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Nikolay Tomenko commented on the last deliveries of the state awards by the President Victor Yushchenko
"For the last period absurdity and immorality of prize system of Ukraine became obvious", - Tomenko quotes a press - service BP.
According to Tomenko, it is quite obvious that decisions on rewarding are made by several officials of the Secretariat of the President. After all raises big doubts that the Commission of the state awards and heraldry which, in particular, enter Vyacheslav Kirilenko, Ivan Vakarchuk and others, could agree on such decisions.
One of the most resonant and debatable, convinced the vice-chairman of the Verkhovna Rada, there were last rewardings, for example, assignment of "the Hero of Ukraine" to the Minister of an agrarian policy Yury Melnik. Press - the service BP reminds that "the so-called group of supporters of the Ours Ryaba company already received in the summer one "hero", the chairman of the board of Mironovsky Bakery joint-stock company Yury Kosyuk" became him.
According to the vice-the speaker of parliament, yesterday's assignments of a rank by the President of Ukraine "the Hero of Ukraine" to the chairman of Audit Chamber Valentin Simonenko also showed that the friendly relations with the management of the Secretariat of the President it is more important than public support and public authority. "It is possible to imagine only, how many still "Awards of the prince Yaroslav the Wise" will be handed over such as Leonid Chernovetsky, and "Heroes of Ukraine" business - to partners or family friends of the Secretariat of the President in recent months Victor Yushchenko's presidencies", - was emphasized by the vice-chairman of the Verkhovna Rada.
Also Tomenko as the chairman of the public organizing committee on preparation and celebration 75-й anniversaries since the birth of the outstanding Ukrainian writer and the poet Vasily Simonenko, reported: "At the last meeting we (the organizing committee, in particular, includes Boris Oliynyk, Nikolay Som, Vladimir Bilenko, Sergey Galchenko, Nikolay Lukov, Victor Nabrusko, etc.) prepared the address about assignment for this poet of a rank of the Hero of Ukraine posthumously.However, after the last prize actions, probably, it is necessary to wait for new prize system and the new President".
