The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has started the next large-scale stage of the attack on the head of the political council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party, Viktor Medvedchuk - new recordings of telephone conversations of the alleged leader of the party have appeared on the Internet. Klymenko Time writes about it.
The online publication notes that the Bihus.Info project published these records.
"We have no doubt that the materials were sent to Bihus by Zelensky's team. In covering the topic with tapes, it acts as a united front, forgetting about internal quarrels," Klymenko Time said.
The publication clarifies that one of the main messages of the new campaign aimed at discrediting Medvedchuk is that he has regularly visited the Administration of President Poroshenko and constantly called him since the summer of 2014. Besides, special emphasis is placed on the fact that Medvedchuk did not have a direct connection with Vladimir Putin.
“This emphasis should probably show everyone that Medvedchuk's influence is not as great as many people think,” Klymenko Time suggests. “The main, albeit soft, emphasis is on the connection between Poroshenko and Medvedchuk.”
At the same time, as the Internet resource notes, the lack of reaction of Petro Poroshenko to the tapes suggests that the European Solidarity party is developing an "anti-crisis" because they understand that "it is simply impossible to remain silent."
And the fact that Bihus has announced new tapes discussing business issues shows that the "show" from Zelensky's team will be continued.
As it was reported earlier, the Pechersk district court of Kyiv chose the restriction measure for Viktor Medvedchuk, the opposition MP and Chairman of the Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life party. The lawmaker will remain under house arrest until July 9, 2021. Prosecutor asked the court to arrest Medvedchuk until July 10 or define the bail in the amount of 10 million US dollars.
Earlier, the politician left the Prosecutor General's Office, having looked through the charges against him. "I read (the suspicion) and took a copy. The accusations are unfounded, unsubstantiated and, in general, they can be called political", Medvedchuk told Interfax news agency while leaving the building.
