It is remarkable that Medvedchuk used Russian TV-channel to comment on the subject of the criminal case against him on the charges on high treason.
One of the leaders of “Opposition Platform – For Life” political force Victor Medvedchuk was aired in Moscow TV-channel studio by using video link from Kiev.
“What the authorities are trying to do today is to eliminate the real threat to them… I want to remind those squints who have opened a criminal case against me that, in accordance with the Minsk Agreements, Ukraine has obligations to define the special status of uncontrolled territories by introducing changes in its legal framework and the Constitution, ” – Putin’s best friend expressed his opinion.
Apparently, he believes that his plan to give the autonomy to the so-called “DPR” and “LPR” to be the peace plan.
Russian TV-host also verbalized the following question: “You are a symbolic figure, this [criminal charges] is quite a radical step. Do you think such a step could have been taken without prior coordination with the United States? ”
“I think not – judging by the initiative of the “People’s Front” (the criminal case against Medvedchuk was initiated after the appeal of People’s Deputy from this party), a party that is headed by Arseniy Yatsenyuk – yesterday’s and today’s leader of Washington’s fifth column in Ukraine. He receives all his instructions from the United States Embassy. Therefore, I think that this is just the reaction of the Washington to the peace plan, which can be acceptable to all sides of the “quadrilateral” – Kiev, Donetsk, Lugansk, and Moscow.” – replied the “opposition” Ukrainian politician and Putin’s best friend.
