Verkhovnaya Rada is gathering facts2008-11-10 09:43
In the course of investigation of Ukrainian arms supplies to Georgia the Commission of Verkhovnaya Rada of the Ukraine has come across new evidence that President Viktor Yushenko must be responsible for arming Tbilisi before the war in the Caucasus.
This was reported on Monday, November 3, during the visit of the Provisional Commission of Inquiry (PCI) of Verkhovnaya Rada headed by Valery Konovalyuk, a deputy from "Party of Regions", to South Ossetia. They arrived there to clarify the circumstances and establish the facts of Ukrainian military equipment and ammunition supplies to Georgia in violation of the Ukrainian laws and international rules.
Already this month the obtained data will be presented at Rada hearings, the PCI head declared. The Commission began its investigation as early as September 2. Since that time Konovalyuk has repeatedly accused Yushenko of illegal arming of Mikhail Saakashvili regime. According to the regional deputy assertions many types of military equipment were picked up from combat duty and were shipped bypassing the state treasury.
Konovalyuk stated in Tskhinval that the Commission was intended to get as much necessary information and documents as possible in order to check whether the arms received by Georgia had been registered by the relevant authorities in Ukraine, and if there were no contraband units. Apart from that he said "we have to understand in what way this equipment was used at the time of the military aggression. I believe we will find support here and will be back in Kiev with adequate information and documents".
Konovalyuk pointed out that Ukraine was morally responsible for what had happened in the South Caucasus adding: "I am utterly disappointed to realize that this situation could have been prevented. I am sure that but for suchlike actions of our political leaders (for Ukraine is the main supplier of the military equipment) there were all the chances for amicable settlement".
