The head of the political council of the Opposition Platform – For Life (Opposition Platform – For Life) party, Viktor Medvedchuk, believes that negotiations between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin are necessary for Kiev. It is reported by RIA News…
“I am firmly convinced that Mr Zelenskiy needs to negotiate with Mr Putin. Because it is necessary, it is an interest for Ukraine, ”the politician said.
According to Medvedchuk, the sooner the authorities come to their senses and find interest for Ukraine and for the people, and this is in peaceful coexistence, trade relations and peace in the Donbass, the better.
Medvedchuk has been under house arrest since mid-May on charges of treason and violation of the laws and customs of war. On October 11, the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) of Ukraine handed him a motion for arrest or bail of one billion hryvnia (more than 2.7 billion rubles).
On October 8, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Irina Venediktova announced her intention to demand the arrest of Medvedchuk. The new charges relate to the supply of coal from the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR) in 2014-2015.
