Today, 15 August 2021 one of the leaders of our party, the mayor of Kryvyi Rih and the head of the city organization of the Opposition Platform - For Life party Kostyantyn Pavlov was treacherously killed in the village of Vilne near Kryvyi Rih, in the courtyard of his house.
His victory in the mayoral elections in Kryvyi Rih became a cold shower both for President Zelensky, for whom this city is home, and for Rinat Akhmetov, since his business interests are concentrated in this city.
The Opposition Platform - For Life party perceives the murder of Kostyantyn Pavlov as another terrorist act against our party, carried out with approval and in conditions of complete impunity. The executioners, acting in the interests of Zelensky's government, carried out another order for the physical destruction of one of the leaders of our party, our mayor, who headed one of the largest industrial centers of Ukraine.
It is obvious that it is the current government that is the main beneficiary of this monstrous crime. They deliberately prepared this, in particular, when the MP from the "Servant of the People" Poturayev called from the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada to "shoot the OPFL (Opposition Platform - For life, - ed.)."
The Opposition Platform - For Life expects that the authorities will try to pass off this political murder as a suicide, and we emphasize once again: Kostyantyn Pavlov was a young, healthy, optimistic man. And most importantly - to deeply believers, he was awarded the Order of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker "For Charity."
Zelensky's power has shifted from fabricating custom-made criminal cases and inciting pro-fascist organizations to direct physical elimination of political rivals and terror.
We offer our deepest condolences to the family, relatives and friends of the deceased. We demand that the customers and perpetrators of this terrible crime be brought to criminal responsibility.
