During his working visit to Zaporizhia Oblast, the leader of the OPPOSITION BLOC Yevhen Muraiev met with residents of Zaporozhia and party members.
The speech of Yevhen Muraiev aroused considerable interest among the Zaporozhia residents. During the two-hour meeting in the “Metallurg” Palace of Culture, the oppositionist told about the electoral strategy of his political party during the election campaign to the Verkhovna Rada, elaborated on the problems of the Ukrainian economy and ways to solve them, sharply criticized those parties that go into politics for their own interests and make money on war. Muraiev openly answered many, sometimes acute, questions from residents of Zaporizhia.
The leader of the OPPOSITION BLOC emphasized that his political force is in favor of restoring peace, large-scale decentralization, maintaining budget funds in the localities and consistently defend the interests of local communities. That is why the OPPOSITION BLOC team included mayors of seventy cities and united territorial communities, who know how people live and understand how to address urgent problems of cities and towns. “We will make people proud of our country again,” Yevhen Muraiev stressed.
He noted that the OPPOSITION BLOC in these elections to the Verkhovna Rada would take 9-10% of the vote. Given the falling ratings of opponents and the 5% passing barrier, which not all and even well-known political forces will overcome, a certain proportional bonus will be added to these 9-10%. If we add here deputies from the OPPOSITION BLOC elected by the majority system, the party can compete for an impressive number of seats in the new Verkhovna Rada.
According to Muraiev, various political forces now call themselves “opposition”, and it is necessary to be critical of the statements emanating from pseudo-oppositionists. “Consider: in the “Opposition Platform – For Life” of Medvedchuk-Boyko, there are 11 former members of the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko and the nationalist Kiva, who called for shooting “Kyiv-Donetsk” buses. That is the answer – it is just another deception of people. The only real opposition is our real OPPOSITION BLOC. We have defended and will continue to defend the rights of people,” he said.
Muraiev shared his impressions of visiting the largest Zaporizhia-based enterprise “Zaporizhstal”. He is sure that the people of labor know the true value of patriotism. In view of the oppositionist, they are the real patriots, who develop Ukraine by daily hard work, rather than unfoundedly cover themselves with national symbols.
