More than five thousand representatives of the Opposition Platform - For Life, Youth Branch of the party and Patriots - For Life public movement against fascism held a rally in support of peace in Donbas at the building of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. The event was broadcasted by Pershiy Nezalezhniy TV channel.
The event near the parliament started around 11:00 Kyiv time. People from all over Ukraine came to support politicians and activists.
In addition to posters indicating their regions, they held the state flags of Ukraine, flags of the Opposition Platform - For Life political party and of Patriots - For Life group.
Earlier, the Chairman of Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life Viktor Medvedchuk developed and presented in the European Parliament in Strasbourg a peace plan to return Donbas, which was accepted by both the Normandy four and representatives of the ORDLO.
It is based on direct negotiations of the four: Kyiv-Donetsk-Luhansk-Moscow. This plan, according to representatives of Berlin, Paris, Moscow, Luhansk and Donetsk, is the most realistic and the most optimal for resolving the conflict in Donbas.
In addition, Medvedchuk initiated the creation of the Parliamentary Dimension of Normandy format, which should help the leaders of the countries to achieve peace in the Eastern Ukraine.
This plan is not being implemented due to the lack of political will of President Zelensky.
Among the participants and speakers of the rally were MPs: Yuriy Boyko, Koltunovych Oleksandr, Ilya Kyva, Viktor Chorny, Nestor Shufrich and others.
Their main demand is for the authorities to pay more attention to the problem of Donbas and achieve peace in Eastern Ukraine.
As it was reported earlier, the Opposition Platform - For Life organized a rally near the Verkhovna Rada in Kyiv against the opening of the land market. At the time, about 5,000 people also came to the rally.
Representatives of the Opposition Platform - For Life, who came to the parliament building from all over the country, speaking at the rally said that they would do everything to prevent the opening of the land market.
By the way, the Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party Viktor Medvedchuk called the adoption of the law on the land market a crime against the Ukrainian people. The politician is convinced that the adoption of this law is the result of Washington's external control, which was introduced in Ukraine.
