Authorities are hiding their offshore scandals and mediocrity behind another repressions against Viktor Medvedchuk
The unlawful and unsuccessful attempt to hand over a new suspicion to the chairman of the political council of the OPPOSITION PLATFORM - FOR LIFE party MP Viktor Medvedchuk demonstrated that the government continues its illegal policy of falsifying criminal cases, reprisals against political opponents, establishing an absolute dictatorship of Zelensky and his closest entourage.
The Kvartal 95 mates have decided to put some heat to the dying case against the chairman of the political council of OPPOSITION PLATFORM - FOR LIFE Viktor Medvedchuk. Today the Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova and the head of the Security Service Ivan Bakanov voiced “new”, hundred times more absurd accusations against him. This time – over “undermining the energy security of the country”. And they demanded a billion-dollar bail or arrest. It is symptomatic that these false, groundless “suspicions” and record bail amounts arose during the period of the energy crisis in the country and a series of high-profile offshore scandals in which the highest representatives of Ze-government are engaged.
The very attempt to hand over the summons, which was carried out according to a procedure that violates the requirements of the Criminal Procedure Code and violated the rights of Viktor Medvedchuk, testifies to the complete nihilism and disrespect for the law of those who give, and those who carry out the order for the political persecution of both Viktor Medvedchuk and other opposition politicians. Already at the beginning of the procedural actions on a new criminal case, even before the trial, the prosecutors achieved a complete fiasco.
First, the opening of a new criminal case is due to the complete helplessness of the prosecutor’s office, inability to substantiate their positions in the first criminal case against Viktor Medvedchuk, who disputes the unlawful choice of a measure of restraint in the form of house arrest in the European Court for Human Rights, where his complaints have already been accepted for consideration.
Second (and most importantly), by such actions Zelensky’s authorities seek to divert attention from the scandals that accompany the activities of the President and his entourage: the offshore scandal associated with the publication of the “Pandora Papers”, the resignation of the chairman of the Verkhovna Rada, designed to finally put an end to the independence of the legislative branch, and a number of other equally egregious events.
OPPOSITION PLATFORM - FOR LIFE declares: the fact that today the authorities resort to such dirty, manipulative circus tricks shows that they have completely cornered themselves with their own criminal and anti-popular policy, about which our party constantly spoke.
With yet another rude attacks, Zelensky’s entourage wants to divert people’s attention from their catastrophic failures. To create the impression that imaginary “enemies” are to blame for the energy crisis and their own corruption. But they will not succeed! OPPOSITION PLATFORM - FOR LIFE emphasizes that the current government is solely responsible for the tariff genocide, empty gas and coal storage facilities, the risks of disruption of the heating season and the collapse of the entire energy system of the country.
OPPOSITION PLATFORM - FOR LIFE declares: Zelensky’s government is turning the country into a territory of complete lawlessness, tyranny and dictatorship. Such actions of Zelensky and his entourage caused just outrage not only in Ukraine, but also abroad. Nobody believes in the shameless lies of the authorities.
We demand from Zelensky and his team to stop the flywheel of political repression. Stop engaging in gross falsifications and rigging. Stop looking for enemies among the opposition. Today, Ukraine’s real enemy is a mediocre, incompetent and corrupt government.
In order to prevent the Ukrainian society from realizing this, trying in vain to divert attention from Zelensky’s complete fiasco, his entourage turns justice into some kind of a circus, stamping out criminal cases... And responsibility for this will inevitably follow, and we will make every effort to achieve justice.
