On 7 October 2014, whilst delivering a speech at the Parliament, the Leader of "Svoboda" Oleh Tiahnybok urged to make the list of MPs who voted against anti-corruption bills public.

October 3 2014 There should not be any elections at the occupied territories of Donbas! There should not be any supporters of separatists and aggressor in the Parliament!

"Svoboda" is strongly against the early Parliamentary elections at the territory of Donbas which is temporarily occupied by Russian aggressors and terrorists. This is because Ukrainian law is not functioning properly at the occupied territories where Ukrainian patriots are killed every day and hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians left their homes because their lives were under the threat. All those circumstances create a ground for 100% falsifications of elections results which may help supporters of the aggressor and the Yanukovich regime to join our Parliament and to form pro-Putin coalition. As an example: Serhiy Kravchenko who supported illegal separatists' referendum is now the candidate in 105th district in Luhansk.

During a briefing at the Parliament on the 16 September, Oleh Tiahnybok stated the following: "On 16 September, the situation that occurred on 16 January this year was repeated in the Parliament. Only "Svoboda" did not give a single vote for a closed session. After a break, the Parliament still voted "in secret." Then immediately the Bill on "the special status of Donbas" was voted for. In effect, this bill de-facto legitimizes the DPR and LPR, giving the regions "a special status" and the right to form a police force and judicial system. Deputies from "Svoboda", in order to avoid speculation, pulled out their cards and lifted them up. However, the bill was passed, and we consider this an announcement of surrender in the Russian-Ukrainian war. ".

July 31 2014 Oleh Tiahnybok: Oligarchs should finance Ukrainian Army

According to Oleh Tiahnybok, everyone, including the Government, need to consolidate their efforts to provide Ukrainian troops with all necessary means to achieve victory over Moscow invaders. Ukrainian people already provide those who fight in ATO zone with bulletproof vests, helmets and other necessary military equipment.
