Selling pets for debt is savagery and cynicism, as the Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life Party and MP, Viktor Medvedchuk believes.
“It is your channel that helped the Justice Minister to come up with this “genius” idea. It’s on one of your shows played out a situation when one of the representatives of the “servants” of the western masters, said that if you have nothing to pay for utility bills with, you can sell the dog if it’s an elite breed and get the money. This idea was so widespread that now the Minister of Justice himself suggested: of course, you have to sell pets and earn money, including for improving my well-being. I will tell you that it is not just savagery and cynicism, but the behavior and speech of this person are way overboard. If we really go down so low, when we perceive such statements as normal, then all of us are worthless,” the politician said on a Prime talk show on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
He emphasized that if Ukrainians were to follow this path, it will be the end.
“If we go down this way, it will be the end. It’s like in a well-known expression: drain the water, because it is over the top. I do not want us to get to this and listen to such “smart people,” taking into account both the broadcast and the supervision of the National Council on TV and Radio Broadcasting. It is so that they again have the pretext to put forward some new, fictitious claims against you. Therefore, the assessment is extremely negative – it is a pity that this person is a member of the government. Although the entire government, like amateurs and laymen, they are all the same. And this field is very far from Ukraine, and especially from the interests of Ukrainian citizens,” Medvedchuk said.
Earlier it was reported that the youth wing of the Opposition Platform - For Life will help return pets taken by the Ministry of Justice.
