The information security policy in Ukraine has actually failed and has been chaotic in recent years. One of the leaders of the OPPOSITION BLOC, MP Oleksandr Vilkul, commented on the purchase of “ZIK” TV channel by Taras Kozak, Viktor Medvedchuk’s associate, on the “Right to Power” program on “1 + 1” TV channel.
According to Oleksandr Vilkul, a specially created Ministry of Information Policy was more involved in promoting the activities of the previous President, Petro Poroshenko, rather than repelling information attacks on the country.
“What did Poroshenko try to do? He created this “Ministry of Propaganda” with the task to praise Poroshenko, however, this did not help him much. In addition, he also employed there his godfather, Yuriy Stets,” Oleksander Vilkul noted.
He also stressed that the previous power deliberately allowed the purchase of a number of TV channels by Viktor Medvedchuk and his team. Medvedchuk performs the function of a convenient “sparring partner” for Poroshenko.
“Everything is actually very simple: Medvedchuk and Poroshenko are partners. Medvedchuk, creating a certain image of Poroshenko, helps him to consolidate some of the radical voters. At the same time in the situation of the conflict of the Russian Federation-Ukraine Medvedchuk is a mediator and earns on this mediation. Tell me, who knew or saw, what was the influence of Medvedchuk from 2004 to 2014? No influence. As soon as the war began - he became a great, serious politician. He earns oil for us, gas – for them, and so on, along with Petro Poroshenko. Therefore, they are very beneficial to each other,” Oleksandr Vilkul stated.
He also noted another confirmation of the cooperation of Petro Poroshenko with Viktor Medvedchuk - the electoral list of the “For Life” party.
“Look at the party list of “Opposition Platform - For Life”. There are 11 members of the “Bloc of Petro Poroshenko” in the entrance section plus radical nationalist Kiva. That is, by voting today for the “Opposition Platform - For Life”, you vote for Poroshenko. Every third person in their party list is from the “Bloc of Petro Poroshenko”, the leader of the OPPOSITION BLOC added.
