Verkhovna Rada First Deputy Speaker Ruslan Stefanchuk has announced the expulsion of MP Oleksandr Yurchenko from the parliamentary faction of the Servant of the People party.

According to an Ukrinform correspondent, he said this at the end of a parliament meeting on Thursday, September 17.

"In accordance with Part 3 of Article 60 of the Rules of Procedure of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and in accordance with the decision of the parliamentary faction of the Servant of the People political party of September 14, 2020, I announce the expulsion of Ukrainian MP Oleksandr Mykolaiovych Yurchenko from the deputy faction of the Servant of the People political party," Stefanchuk said.

Earlier, deputy head of the Servant of the People faction, Yevhenia Kravchuk, said that Yurchenko had written an application to leave the faction on September 15.

On September 13, MP Geo Leros reported on social media that several days ago, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine detained an aide to MP Oleksandr Yurchenko, who, according to Leros, "took the first $13,000 out of the $200,000 that was to be provided to MP Yurchenko for a bill related to household waste."

On September 14, MP Oleksandr Kachura wrote on a social networking site following a meeting of the Servant of the People faction that Yurchenko would voluntarily write an application to leave the faction.

On September 15, the High Anti-Corruption Court chose a measure of restraint in the form of arrest with the possibility of posting bail of over UAH 1 million for Yurchenko's aide, Ivan Fishchenko, whom the NABU suspects of bribery in collusion with the MP.

On September 17, Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova said that she had signed a suspicion notice for MP Yurchenko.
