“Many people threaten Viktor Medvedchuk. Yes, many people know him; he is rather old political figure. The way people treat him is their own business. Personally, I would like to say that he has his own position, which he always expressed. Personally I disagreed with him for many times. I disagreed with him even when I was the president of Ukraine. But I haven’t ordered anybody to make him silent or to do something with him, some sort of provocations. That’s why, of course, it is a disaster, it is wrong. The current authority speaks all the time about democratic principles, the rule of law, human rights and so on, the basis of this state. I dare to say that Ukrainian people disagree with this and I do as well. Well, maybe vice versa”, - he said.
“I heard the information that there is some special group of 12 people, who are working on those people, maybe not only on Medvedchuk, but on me and on others as well, but the information is out there. I would like to ask the law enforcement workers and servicemen not to abide the orders of the criminal authority. The time to pay for their deeds will come for sure”, the ex-president added.
