The chairman of political council of Opposition Platform - For Life Party Viktor Medvedchuk on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel said he was ready for the debates 'with anyone.'

“I give credit to the clever people of Zelensky team, but I can say that if the discussion about me is serious, I’m ready to debate with anyone: with any politician, statesman, businessman. Because I and our political force have our own vision of the strategic development of Ukraine in terms of politics, economics, and humanitarian sphere,“ Medvedchuk said.

He also noted that he was an opponent of the current president Petro Poroshenko, and added that the Opposition Platform - For Life would not support any of the candidates who can make it to the second round.

 “Second: about the proposal of adviser of Mr. Zelensky. I want to say that I do not know how much Mr. Kolomoisky represents Zelensky or can potentially represent him. However, about myself I will certainly say that I cannot represent Mr. Poroshenko for any reasons because I was critical towards him all these years, did not support his election campaign, I opposed him, because I supported another candidate. This is our ideological position: both  of our Opposition platform - For Life and our candidate And of course, our Opposition Platform - For Life Party will not support him or Zelensky in the second round. We will not provide such support and will not agitate for them in the second round,” Medvedchuk added.

Earlier, Viktor Medvedchuk said Poroshenko had entered the second round of elections thanks to Oleksandr Vilkul.
