Viktor Medvedchuk, the leader of the Ukrainian Choice, spoke about this in 'A Big Interview with a Big Politician' on 112 Ukraine, spoke on his relationship with Ukrainian businessman Igor Kolomoisky and leader of the "Fatherland" party Yulia Tymoshenko.

According to him, he does not conduct any political negotiations with Kolomoisky and Tymoshenko.

"There is no rapprochement. I had a conversation with Mr. Kolomoisky only once in 2014 when he was appointed the head of the Dnipropetrovsk region. After that, I have not had any contacts with him. Especially political ones. We do have nothing common in the political sense, and it just impossible," he claimed.

"I do not know about the relationships between Kolomoisky and Tymoshenko. I have no relationship with Tymoshenko. I remember that in his interview, given several months ago, Kolomoisky said he would support Tymoshenko as a presidential candidate if I am not mistaken... He probably has a reason for this, God will be his judge. I cannot have a political agreement with Kolomoisky. Why? This is our personal question," he noted.

Medvedchuk has also commented on the scandal that erupted around his wife Oksana Marchenko after she agreed to participate in the "Dancing with the Stars" project ("1 + 1" channel), owned by Igor Kolomoisky.

"Regarding the scandal, I was against the project in which she (Oksana Marchenko, - Ed.) would participate. First, the channel is quite specific, and I realized that something like that could happen. And it happened. On the other hand, for two years they have been offering her this participation. She made the decision herself, and I support her, neither she nor I reacted personally to these scandals. And we would not comment on it. I said: Oksana, you have a chance to demonstrate your abilities, and I believe in you. The best answer to those who oppose you will be your participation and the results. I believe not only in her but her win," he said.

Earlier, the media reported that Igor Kolomoysky and Yulia Tymoshenko were seen in the same hotel in Warsaw.

Ukrainian TV presenter Oksana Marchenko has confirmed her participation in the "Dancing with the Stars" show. She published this information in her social media.

"This is a kind of ‘dare challenge.’ But I have to do it for the sake of all women who feel scared, and they are afraid of starting something new," Marchenko explained her participation, which provoked an active media discussion.
