“Yesterday I returned from the Carpathian region. Met in the villages most affected by the floods. I want to emphasize that this is the largest flood in the last 50 years. It exceeds the catastrophic flood of 2008. People urgently need our help. You can imagine that the woman who bombarded and destroyed the house, filled her husband, they found him with a broken leg, received an offer from the authorities that she was caught that she had suffered, wrote the application about how it’s proven, and they think how to help. Such behavior of the authorities is completely unacceptable. Because she and the children remained in the street and we had to take certain steps in order to save them”, – said Poroshenko.

Today it will be necessary to form – and people are asking, is the organ of parliamentary control over the use of every penny of budget funds, leaving like this, unfortunately, happens to the budget money”, – the politician noted.

He also urged all MPs to join the initiative of the faction “European solidarity” to transfer one-day salary for the flood victims. “There is no need to pull the blanket over himself, the Parliament also needs to speak symbolically,” – says Poroshenko.

The leader of “European solidarity” convinced that in the Carpathian region need to immediately send road-building equipment and to unlock the destroyed infrastructure. “I emphasize: continuing our program of road construction, which is now called “Big construction site,” only highlighted “widokami” – should immediately have all the equipment that is there – graders, dumpers, trucks, excavators – to throw in the Carpathian region. Today people are completely cut off from the outside world. Building materials should be there tomorrow. And I ask Parliament to support this initiative: to organize immediately or speech, or meeting with officials,” – said Poroshenko
