Medvedchuk pointed out his position:
"My views are principled and consistent in the part of Ukraine’s today’s borders, this is a territory that was once artificially created. If we trace the history of the X-XI centuries, there were 7-8 different states on the territory of modern Ukraine – from Kievan Rus, the Golden Horde, Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the Kingdom of Poland, the Ottoman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Russian empire, and the Soviet Union".
Besides, the politician commented on the use of Ukrainian:
"I use the Ukrainian language very often, I speak it. Today I am back in politics and as “Opposition platform - For life” chairman, and when I try to bring to the people my point of view or ideology of our party, I speak Russian".
As we reported earlier, Viktor Medvedchuk, the politician and the head of 'Ukrainsky Vybir' (Ukrainian Choice) political party faces prosecution in Ukraine. Ukraine’s Prosecutor General's Office opened the case against him in state treason and encroachment on the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine. The basis for the criminal proceeding is an application of the Ukrainian MP from the People’s Front political party. The criminal case opened against the politician for his proposals on settlement of the military conflict in Donbas by granting the region with autonomy and capturing that in the Constitution of Ukraine. Medvedchuk voiced the proposals at the All-Ukrainian Congress of the party on January 29.
