“We are a real OPPOSITION BLOC — people of concrete actions, not empty words. We were taught to work, rather than speak beautifully. Therefore, we have experienced mayors on the party list who work daily in their territories and who have tremendous support from the people. We also have industrialists and production workers who created, create and are able to create jobs. We have people who took enterprises and entire industries out of the crisis,” said Oleksandr Vilkul, one of the leaders of the OPPOSITION BLOC, on the “Ukraine” TV channel.
The oppositionist gave an example of how he had managed to achieve repayment of one-year wage arrears at one of the enterprises, which he headed in Kryvyi Rih, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. “Becoming the CEO of the Central Mining and Processing Plant, having wage arrears, I repaid it for three months. And we have a lot of such people. We are people of concrete actions. And these specific cases speak best for us,” the MP said.
According to Vilkul, in the new parliament, the OPPOSITION BLOC is ready to unite with the political forces that support its party’s program principles, namely restoring peace, canceling anti-popular “reforms”, reviving industry and the economy, reducing tariffs, increasing salaries and pensions.
“There will be a lot of new beautiful faces in parliament. There are representatives of show business, athletes, singers, and so on. But someone must, after all, work. We are ready to offer President Zelensky a specific economic program with draft laws, specifically, how to reduce tariffs, what to do with medicine, and so on. We will come with very clear, understandable suggestions. We are ready for a coalition of peace, because the most important thing is peace,” the MP said.
