Viktor Medvedchuk requested head of State Security Service Bakanov to assist in release of Ukrainian citizens from ORDLO
The MP, chair of the political council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party Viktor Medvedchuk addressed the head of the Security Service of Ukraine Ivan Bakanov. Viktor Medvedchuk said he was ready to organize the return of Ukrainian citizens home, to their families, to the Ukraine-controlled territory.
Medvedchuk stressed that according to Articles 1, 17 of the Law of Ukraine “On the Status of a Member of Parliament”, the current legislation guarantees him as the MP the right to exercise parliamentary powers throughout the term of the parliament, exercise the representative functions of the Ukrainian people, and act in defense of legitimate interests of Ukrainian citizens. “I believe that the release of persons detained in the territories not controlled by Ukraine is one of the most important tasks of the Ukrainian authorities, a guarantee of the implementation of the Minsk agreements and the establishment of peace in Ukraine,” the parliamentarian said.
Viktor Medvedchuk informed that plenipotentiary representatives of ORDO N. Yu. Nikonorova and ORLO V. N. Deinego addressed him with an official letter.
Representatives of ORDO and ORLO, guided by considerations of humanism and compassion, as well as the fact that Viktor Medvedchuk, within the framework of the work of the humanitarian subgroup, has always shown himself as a conscientious and principled negotiator, decided to transfer through him to the territory controlled by Ukraine citizens being in places of detention.
In the letter to Medvedchuk it is suggested to withdraw to the territory controlled by Ukraine through the Mayorsk checkpoint of four Ukrainian citizens, which can be done starting from January 20, 2021.
