Ukrainian parliament failed the appeal on the occasion of the end of the war and this is an assessment of the failed foreign policy of Ukraine. The Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life Party and MP Viktor Medvedchuk said this to reporters of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

“You know, on March 1, our Opposition Platform - For Life faction has proposed a draft resolution on celebration and honoring the heroes of the Great Patriotic War, combatants, and all veterans, I emphasize, the veterans of Great Patriotic War. It has not been put on the agenda. It is symbolic that today the last issue that Verkhovna Rada voted for, is the issue of the resolution of the appeal to the parliaments of other states honoring the end of World War II, which was miserably failed. We voted against it. We believe that such decrees divide our society. These are incorrect political assessments of historical events. Historical events should be presented in the light of how it happened,” he said.

“This is why even half of the Servant of the People faction, did not support this resolution, which states that Russia is an aggressor and that the only course is the NATO course, stating also that today Kyiv government, Servant of the People authorities are trying to implement this in foreign policy. That is, the non-voting and failure of this resolution is an assessment of Ukraine’s foreign policy. Because it was proposed by the Committee on Foreign Policy with a list of all these declarations, slogans about the direction Ukraine should move. And the MPs of the Verkhovna Rada, who did not vote despite the mono-majority, demonstrated their attitude to this foreign policy,” the politician summed up.
