Publication of the wrong communiqué of a meeting in Paris on the website of the President's Office is a falsification. The Chairman of the Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life Party and MP Viktor Medvedchuk expressed this opinion of on air of 112 Ukraine.
“First, we assess this not as manipulation, but as falsification, pure falsification by the employees of the President's Office. Why? Because it is an obvious fact. Because this communique was sent immediately to all journalists, it appeared on the website of all four heads of state. And only on the site of Ukraine’s head of state it appeared falsified,” he said.
Viktor Medvedchuk explained what exactly was a falsification.
“Section that states that the special status of Donbas as a complex must act on a permanent basis, does not mention the law. Why? Because when we are talking about the special status of Donbas, not just the law on special status and the fact that the authorities are now trying to extend it, but also about amendments to the Constitution. And so it was done intentionally to narrow the concept of special status in Donbas provided by the Minsk agreements to one law, not a complex where except the law, the amendments to the Constitution are also provided. It is a political will of Mr. Zelensky and his team. They have repeatedly claimed that did not agree to amend the Constitution,” the MP said.
“The authorities may not agree with this, but the fact is that it was confirmed (I mean the Minsk agreements) at a Normandy meeting and stated in the communique that the parties declared full commitment to the implementation of the Minsk agreements, which mention changes to Constitution. Therefore, when defining this permanent status in the part of the special status of Donbas, it cannot be narrowed down to the concept of law, because it also contains changes to the Constitution. In this we see intentional actions, intentional falsification,” Medvedchuk summed up.
