The upcoming parliamentary election in Ukraine is to a major extent about choosing between war and peace. MP Vadym Rabinovych, co-leader of Opposition Platform - For Life party said this during his speech on July 19. He turned to his party's supporters, urging to come and vote on the election day.
"Over the last five years, our country has been locked up in the dead end. Over these five years, we've found ourselves amidst blood and war (...), economic demise. We are a great country that should have become the locomotive of Europe. Today, we've been ranked last in all possible rankings, on the level of African countries. How did it come to this? We should answer this question during this election. We've got to understand: there's either war or peace. This is what we choose on Sunday (the election day in Ukraine, - 112 International). We choose either peace or war in our house. We choose either misery or decent life - the life we are worthy", he said.
The snap parliamentary election in Ukraine is slated for July 21. The day before that would be a day of silence; all kinds of campaigning are strictly forbidden.
