The searches conducted at the apartment of Viktor Medvedchuk and Taras Kozak, the member of Political Council of the party, accusations against them, another search at the office of the Opposition Platform - For Life party are the revenge and reprisal against the Chairman of the largest opposition party - Opposition Platform - For Life. In spite of the unprecedented pressure and threats, the use of administrative resource and attacks of radical nationalists, who enjoy full support of Zelensky's government, the party carries on with the active political work.
On May 9, Opposition Platform - For Life conducted massive events all over Ukraine; Viktor Medvedchuk actively participated in these, showing that he, just like the rest of party members, will hold on to his ideas, cherishing the memory in the Great Patriotic War and paying tribute to its heroes.
The government made sure that the Opposition Platform - For Life will be standing for this idea just as critically and consistently as it demanded to cut the space-high public utilities rates and to stop the tariff genocide; to counteract the coronavirus pandemic, the mechanism of which was offered by Viktor Medvedchuk; and to bring peace to Donbas and live up to Minsk agreements.
On May 9, the government made sure that the ideas of Opposition Platform - For Life are shared and supported by the overwhelming part of our society, which honors the act of valor of brotherly nations that stopped the Nazism, which now livens up in Ukraine.
The day after that, the government replied with political repressions against Viktor Medvedchuk. Having failed to prove any grounds for the previous repressions - namely, the sanctions - the oppressive machine of the police state went for another act of anarchy, pressing charges against Viktor Medvedchuk and Taras Kozak.
Such actions of the government make an open and cynical political reprisal against the opposition-sided politician who brings to light lack of professionalism, vendibility and anti-popular nature of the government with his principal position. In these conditions, the party reservesd the right to turn to the Ukrainian people so as to take all necessary steps and limit the mercy and lawlessness, robbery and genocide of citizens, and the oppression of dissidents.
