Immunity from prosecution.
How many times have the Rada deputies said they will remove this, and - they still do nothing?
Because so many of them (all of them? ) are corrupt it is an essential tool for them in evading prosecution should something nasty turn up one day.

Poroshenko signs law on reducing excise tax on used cars
http://en.interfax.com.ua/news/economic/354467.html

until January 1, 2019 significantly reduced excise duty on imports of such cars by individuals or legal entities under the condition of imports of one car per year,..

===

So - for 2.5 years. And you can only import one car a year.
Still trying to protect the local car industry, what there is of it.
Better off trying to attract foreign assembly plants to set up in Ukraine.

Joint US-Ukrainian rocket to be launched in August, - Ukraine’s Space Agency. PHOTO & VIDEO

Joint US-Ukrainian rocket to be launched in August, - Ukraine’s Space Agency. VIDEO

The rocket jointly produced by Ukraine and the United States will be launched this August. The hotfire test of the redesigned Antares rocket was successfully completed July 1.

Censor.NET reports citing the press service of the State Space Agency of Ukraine.



"Ukraine cooperates with the U.S. Orbital ATK in construction of Antares. The hotfire tests of the redesigned rocket were successfully completed in June. There were no remarks regarding the operation of the systems and components of the core stage. The first launch of the redesigned rocket is scheduled for August 2016," Chairman of the State Space Agency of Ukraine Liubomyr Sabadosh said.



It is noted that the Antares project started in 2013. As part of this project, Ukraine designed and manufactured the core stage of the U.S. Antares rocket aimed to deliver cargo to the International Space Station from the U.S. Spaceport on Wallops Island.

The core stage was designed by the Ukrainian Pivdenne Design Office and manufactured by Yuzhmash machine-building company situated in Dnipro. Hartron Arcos (Kharkiv), Hartron-UCOM (Zaporizhia), Chezara, Rapid (Chernihiv), and other Ukrainian enterprises were also involved in designing the rocket's core stage. Ukrainians took part not only in manufacturing the core stage but also actively participated in the tests carried out in the United States.

A total of five tests have already been held. Four of them were successful.
"The project was suspended in 2014 following the rocket explosion seconds after its launch because of troubles with the engines. The U.S. has decided to replace the Russian-manufactured engines then," the agency noted.

Mafia to come into open in Rada during vote on gas lord Onyshchenko – expert

Post by Admin on Tue Jul 05, 2016 3:33 pm

Mafia to come into open in Rada during vote on gas lord Onyshchenko – expert

Oleksandr Onyshchenko, suspected of billion murky deals with gas is taking pains to buy support among Rada lawmakers ahead of July 5 vote demanded by the prosecution to strip him of immunity and allow arrest, well-informed Taras Chornovil writes in Facebook.

The expert expects a clash in the legislature, with many lawmakers still sitting on the fence.

Some corrupt lawmakers will take a sick leave from Rada, Chornovil says.

Yulia Tymoshenko is between the rock and a hard place, as she is the true mastermind of the gas scheme. If Yulia votes against Onyshchenko, he may provide massive compromising evidence against her. On the other hand, Yulia is still willing to become president and have a political future. So, the way she votes will be closely watched by the country.

Oleh Lyashko, the leader of the Radical party, is playing for time, expecting to get a higher price for his services.

The Opposition Block lawmaker are divided, with some pushing their buddies to vote against Onyshchenko. Still, many are scary feeling the precedent will create a backlash on themselves in the future.

Some among the Petro Poroshenko Block will take sick leaves from Rada, absconding the vote.

The Yatseniuk-led People’s Front is divided.

All this indicates that Ukraine’s mafia dimensions will be clearly shaped tomorrow, Taras Chornovil sums up.
