“I very much welcome the actions of the attorney General and the Prosecutor’s office they said that is the removal of parliamentary immunity [Skorik] for the events in Odessa. I think there is to it and many other issues. … I brought him biscuits, because he had already something to get used to the idea. I think they will be useful to him. And his colleagues from the Opposition bloc were worried, they understand that many of them may need it. Because they nervously responded, but the breadcrumbs still left to them”, – commented the MP.

In the summer of 2016 MP from the faction of the Radical party Andrei Lozovoi said that against Goncharenko openly criminal proceedings under part 2 of article 110 and section 2 of article 161 of the criminal code of Ukraine (“Encroachment on territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine; violation of equality of citizens depending on their race, national origin, religious belief, disability and other grounds”).
