Opposition leader Oleksandr Vilkul thanked his supporters for their support in the presidential election. “This is almost eight hundred thousand people, and I am grateful to everyone. I am now in response to them,” Vilkul said in an interview with the “Observer”.
According to Vilkul, he had to join the presidential campaign after the betrayal of Yuriy Boyko.
“I actually took the fight for just over a couple of months before the election, after Boyko’s betrayal and his flight to Medvedchuk, as well as their conspiracy to promote the incumbent president to the second round, while pretending to be opposition. But I am calm. As Abraham Lincoln said, You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time,” the opposition leader said.
Oleksandr Vilkul is confident that in the parliamentary elections the OPPOSITION BLOC team will gain the enormous confidence of voters.
“I am sure that our team will gain great trust in the parliamentary elections. If in the presidential election, instead of the names and surnames, the main points of the candidates’ programs were spelled out, I would have won the first round, without modesty, because I have the most balanced, pro-Ukrainian, politically and economically grounded program. But history, as is known, does not tolerate the subjunctive mood. I have no time and no reason to be upset. My next election campaign has already begun. I went to politics to protect people; I took part in the presidential election to protect people. I continue to do that,” Vilkul emphasized.
