The Chairman of Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life Party and MP Viktor Medvedchuk believes that the rally under the 112 Ukraine TV channel, organized by one of the right-wing organizations, is a testimony, first of all, to such elements of authority that, unfortunately, uses such shameful methods. Medvedchuk said it on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"I have profoundly firm position on this issue when authority puts the fight against independent media in the first place, including your NewsOne TV Channel that did not get its license renewed, which was addressed to the National Council on Television and Radio Broadcasting, while it is executing Mr. Zelensky's and his entourage’s commands over licenses, illegal Zik TV Channel inspections, and all of those actions, starting with the one, which ended in a shot from a grenade launcher at your TV studio premises and did not get any official reaction from the authorities, and, of course, the results of the investigation," Medvedchuk said.
Medvedchuk stressed that, in his opinion, these are all links of the same chain.
"Today's action of right-wing national radicals is a testimony, first of all, to such elements of authority that, unfortunately, uses such shameful methods when the national radicals "C-14" on behalf of the Security Service of Ukraine, and other national-radical rights organizations are involved in influencing the independent media and complementing the involvement of Mr. Zelensky and his team in the independent media, which is aimed at the destruction of independent broadcasters. This is, once again, one chain link, and you should not have any doubt, there should be no doubt within normal people, including politicians and experts who are standing behind all of this. There is an authority that is interested in dismissing inconvenient broadcasting - critical broadcasting, balanced broadcasting," the politician concluded.
As we reported earlier, Viktor Medvedchuk, the Chairman of Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life party and MP stated that the suggested budget of the government for the next year is the budget of poverty, which does not differ from the budgets adopted by the Verkhovna Rada in 2014-2019.
