Political oppression against Medvedchuk follow as government observes how most of people support his ideas
The searches conducted at homes of Viktor Medvedchuk and Taras Kozak, the member of the political council of the party, charges against them, another search at the office of the Opposition Platform - For Life party entail the revenge and reprisals against the chair of the largest opposition party - Opposition Platform - For Life. Despite the unprecedented pressure and threats, the use of administrative resource and attacks of radical nationalists, who enjoy full support of Zelenskyy's government, the party keeps on having strong political activity.
On May 9, Opposition Platform - For Life organized large-scale events all over Ukraine; Viktor Medvedchuk actively participated in them, showing that just like the rest of party members he will defend his ideas, cherishing the memory of the Great Patriotic War and paying tribute to its heroes.
The government saw that Opposition Platform - For Life would be standing for this idea just as critically and consistently as it demanded to cut the space-high public utility prices and to stop the tariff genocide; to counteract the coronavirus pandemic, the mechanism of which was offered by Viktor Medvedchuk; and to bring peace to Donbas and implement the Minsk agreements.
On May 9, the government saw that the ideas of Opposition Platform - For Life are shared and supported by the overwhelming part of our society, which honors the feat of brotherly nations that stopped Nazism, which now livens up in Ukraine.
The day that followed, the government replied with political repressions against Viktor Medvedchuk. Having failed to prove any grounds for the previous repressions - namely, the sanctions - the oppressive machine of the police state went for another act of anarchy, having announced charges against Viktor Medvedchuk and Taras Kozak.
Such actions of the government make an open and cynical political reprisal against the opposition politician who sheds light on the lack of professionalism, corruption and anti-people nature of the government with his principal position. In these conditions, the party reservesd the right to turn to the Ukrainian people so as to take all necessary steps and to stop the arbitrariness and lawlessness, robbery and genocide of citizens, and the oppression of dissent.
