The flywheel of political repression launched by the authorities is gaining momentum. Now they plan to take the anti-democratic persecution of the opposition to the international level. As it became known, the Office of the Prosecutor General, under a far-fetched pretext, wants to put Taras Kozak, an MP, member of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party, on the international wanted list. Over the past time, the authorities have not provided a single piece of evidence confirming the accusations against the parliamentarian. All that Zelensky's authorities can do is use administrative resources, falsify criminal cases, impose illegal sanctions to fight the opposition in an extrajudicial and anti-constitutional manner, to obstruct the legitimate political activities of MPs of the Opposition Platform - For Life.
Zelensky and his entourage have clearly demonstrated that they will not hesitate to use the dirtiest methods of political strife, violent crimes involving street gangs operating under the guise of radical nationalist organizations. The main opponents for the Ze-authorities were not the economic crisis and the poverty of the people, but the opposition and Ukrainian democracy. The media are shutting down, the independence of the judiciary is under attack, delusional criminal cases are fabricated against the opposition. Officials litter with budget money and take it into their pockets. But the only task of all law enforcement agencies is the anti-constitutional persecution of the opposition.
Opposition Platform - For Life states that the political persecution of MP Taras Kozak pursues one goal: reprisals against independent media, 112 Ukraine, NewsOne and ZIK TV channels, and the destruction of freedom of speech in Ukraine. We are convinced that the international community will not only avoid taking part in a naive and cynical attempt to tie it with the legal lawlessness of the Ukrainian government, but will also give its harsh assessment of the illegal, unconstitutional and extrajudicial persecutions carried out by Zelensky and his entourage to establish a dictatorship in Ukraine.
We declare that all charges against Taras Kozak are completely illegal and politically motivated. We demand from the authorities to stop political repression. We appeal to the entire international community not to follow the lead of the presumptuous Ze-team and not to share with it the responsibility for the destruction of Ukrainian democracy and reprisals against freedom of speech.
