The resignation of the Vice-Chancellor of Austria Heinz-Christian strache on the background of “Russian scandal,” commented the Ambassador of Ukraine Oleksandr Scherba, calling it “a manifestation of democracy.”
“A sign of a functioning democracy – a tradition of voluntary retirement. The unacceptability of a situation when your country or the party bears the burden of your shame. 18 hours ago Heinz-Christian strache was one of the most influential politicians of Austria,” szczerba wrote on his page on the social network Facebook.
As reported, strache Saturday, the day after the publication of the investigation on scandalous video, announced his resignation.
Earlier the newspaper “European truth” reported that the leader of the far-right Austrian freedom party (FPÖ) was in the center of a scandal that could seriously undermine the government’s position and become a major argument in the campaign for the elections of the European Parliament.
On the eve of the German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung and the Spiegel magazine have published a joint investigation in connection with the video, which strache before the parliamentary elections in 2017 is negotiating with supposedly a rich Russian woman, the woman offers a policy of money and electoral support in exchange for reciprocal services.
