Trying to make excuses for a luxury holiday in the Seychelles, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko has brought upon itself another disaster. Chief lawyer of the country in proof that the new year holidays on the Islands afforded, posted on the Internet an income statement for last year. But instead of understanding received a new wave of indignation.
Still. According to the certificate, the income of the public Prosecutor in some incredible way was growing from month to month at a great rate. For example, in February of 2017 the year the salary he was 57 thousand UAH, and in October — 172 thousand hryvnias. Threefold increase in “allowances” during the year could not boast of any public servant of Ukraine. The same prosecutors of lower rank in July, received 11 to 12 thousand hryvnia, and the fall of wages grew by just up to 19 thousand hryvnia. The employees of the Prosecutor General during this time increased its average income from 18,000 to 23,000 USD. No one has seen wage increases of up to 50%, not to mention the triple jump. And the New year the attorney General has been credited with altogether 218 563 USD. Which is equal to the annual income of other prosecutors.
The question arises, for which the attorney General has dramatically increased salary? It is clear that for “the labors”, but for what? No high-profile cases in that time was not disclosed: no killer Pavel Sheremet is not found, no killer Boronenkov not punished. The case of the shooting of “Heavenly hundreds” is not completed. Even ex-President Yanukovych in the courts to nail on is not spilling things, like a child’s sandbox.
It’s funny, but the revenue jump from twice — from 70 thousand hryvnias in July to 131 thousand in August was when the country began a confrontation with the exiled from Ukraine by ex-President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili. Genprokuror at this time became the chief persecutor “of the Leader of the new forces movement”. But in September, Saakashvili broke in the square, and before the Ukrainian authorities the issue arose as to expel him from the country? And the salary of the public Prosecutor in this time jumped again, up to 172 thousand in October. Looks like Lutsenko to pay for something that he did not left without attention. However, at this time there were many other interesting events. For example, a desperate struggle of the public Prosecutor with the National anti-corruption Bureau. And here fiercer Lutsenko attacked “fighters”, the rapidly grow its revenues.. A mysterious connection. It seems now the attorney General will have to explain about his “explanation” of the trip to the Seychelles.
