  • A very pointless poll, seeing that nobody ever gets thrown in prison for corruption. If they did, Ukraine would need dozens of new prisons, and hundreds of new politicians.

  • I knew that the people would support such a law. But, as foccusser has already pointed out, it’s useless if no one gets arrested, prosecuted and thrown into prison. For that matter, what good is ANY anti-corruption law when it remains as nothing more than a little paper tiger?
