The only position he considers as correct is his position. He attempts to pass himself off as an exclusive personality. Any remarks made to him get an aggressive response.
Every time he repeatedly tries to take the floor at the Council sessions to give an unfair estimate of the government activities, and vilify the state officials.
He rejects constructive cooperation proposals, and does not put forward any concrete proposals. He was issued a formal warning regarding inadmissibility of the deputy ethics violation.
