Ukraine bans its officials from criticizing authorities.

The Ukrainian government has banned all civil servants from publicly expressing criticism towards the work of state institutions or officials amid the ongoing political crisis and the cabinet’s failure to tackle corruption.

The public servants should "avoid any public criticisms of the work of state institutions and their officials," says a new decree outlining “ethical standards” for Ukrainian officials, which was published on the Ukrainian cabinet’s official website.

According to the document, state service inevitably envisages “forming a positive image of the authorities.” It also demands that the officials avoid “actions that could harm the interests of the state service or negatively influence the image of a state official.”

Additionally, the new decree introduces a special rule on “loyalty” for all civil servants that envisages the ban on criticizing state officials. The act also demands that all the civil servants should be familiarized with the new rules and fully comply with them, otherwise facing disciplinary action.

According to the government website, “The government has decided to introduce standards of ethical conduct for civil servants to restore public faith in the work of the state bodies and officials.”

Apart from the “loyalty rule,” the new ethical standards for Ukrainian civil servants also include principles of “serving the state and the public,” political neutrality, transparency and accountability. The act generally follows a Polish model, the government website states.

The decree also provoked criticism among some civil servants that denounced it as a violation of the freedom of speech and a break with the officially proclaimed pro-western reform policy.

Olena Minitch, a department head in the economy ministry, said in a Facebook post that the new ethical rules were apparently “created hastily and adopted quickly" in the view of the former Ukrainian Economy Minister Aivarus Abromavicius’s allegations concerning corrupt state practices.

Abromavicius recently resigned in protest over the slow pace of reforms in the country accusing state officials of widespread corruption, which he did not want to “cover.”

At that time, Denmark’s Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen called the scandal with Abromavicius a symptom of a government that has been unable to carry out promised measures to overhaul police, energy companies, and customs, in a country that has regularly been ranked as one of the most corrupt in the world.

Ukraine is facing an ongoing political crisis with the Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk’s approval ratings falling to less than 1 percent.

Kiev mayor at loss when confronted about Ukrainian human rights abuses in interview

Vitaly Klitschko, the boxing champion who now serves as mayor of the Ukrainian capital, was ambushed in a recent Al Jazeera interview. Host Mehdi Hasan confronted him on abuses committed by Ukrainian troops.

The 10-minute interview for the Reality Check program touched upon several hot issues, including Klitschko's alleged ties with a Ukrainian crime boss during his boxing career, the government’s failure to tackle corruption and the political crisis. Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk survived a no-confidence vote after President Petro Poroshenko had called for his resignation, partially thanks to dozens of MPs in Poroshenko’s own faction voting for the PM to keep his job.

However, it was the human rights abuses committed by pro-Kiev troops such as the infamous Azov voluntary battalion, reported by international organizations including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International and many Western media outlets, which apparently gave Klitschko a hard time.

“It’s not true. It’s propaganda war,” he replied when Hasan cited reports that Azov soldiers openly wore Nazi symbols.

Klitschko, who is not known as a brilliant speaker, was speaking English, which may have contributed to his confusion.

“I doesn’t see swastika,” he continued. “I talked to the people. We defend our territory.”

The host challenged this by pointing out that defending oneself does not justify abductions and torture, reportedly committed by Azov troops. Klitschko denied the allegations, saying that as a person living in Ukraine he knows better.

“I don’t know from what you take this information. I’m sorry, I come from Ukraine,” he said.

Hasan asked Klitschko to clarify whether he rejects reports by Amnesty and HRW, to which he said “I don’t have any information.”

Kiev's mayor has made his fair share of gaffes and blunders during interviews in the past, sometimes making really puzzling statements. On one occasion, while describing the red tape in the government, he said: “I have two deputies, four of whom have been lying in the Cabinet and cannot be appointed.” In another interview he was asked how the country could be kept united? He replied: “I met many police officers, who died, to people and demonstrators, who died, and they all ask this question.”

Foreign countries cannot take precedence over the security of Bulgarian citizens, one cannot send a citizen off to certain biased courts in foreign countries, just to please foreigners n the US. You are thinking short-term, but what about tomorrow? If the Ukrainians think they have a case, go through Bulgarian courts, or fck off! The state exists to protect its citizens, not to bend to other states!

You call him a 'thug' yet you totally ignored what I said about Azov Battalion

do I need to go on?

Ukraine doesn't jail its own nazi criminals, but denies that they have done any crimes, yet you want to send a Bulgarian citizens to these hypocrites? They only seek to validate their corrupt power, it's not about justice, but to create a smoke screen that they seek justice while they keep ignoring it when they think it serves them. In short, it would be supporting criminality to send a Bulgarian citizen to them! Ukraine should get its house in order, before it can make any demands of others! Get it now?!
