Viktor Medvedchuk, the chairman of Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life party was summoned for an interview at the office of the SBU, the Security Service of Ukraine. The press service of this political force confirmed it on March 9, saying that the politician showed up at the SBU.
"The questions brought up during this meeting are a classified part of investigation. The leak of information about Medvedchuk visiting the SBU office means that representatives of [President] Zelensky's government who have no legal grounds to prosecute Viktor Medvedchuk and his family turn it into another element of their own PR campaign, which actually makes the entire political life of Ukraine", the press service said.
Opposition Platform - For Life party claims that such actions of the government should be definitely viewed as continuation of politically motivated reprisal against Viktor Medvedchuk; as a response to the criticism against the government in the matters of growth of social tatiffs, and the failure to provide peaceful return of Donbas in Ukraine; as the failure of the government to withstand the Covid-19 pandemic and the implementation of external management policy in Ukraine.
