Yevhen Muraiev: Boyko and Medvedchuk’s visits to the Russian Federation lead to confrontation in the Donbas

The leader of the OPPOSITION BLOC Yevhen Muraiev considers inadmissible the speculations of individual politicians in the war, human grief and the lives of Ukrainians. He stated this on the program “Opposition” on the “Ukraine” TV channel.

According to Muraiev, looking at the frequent visits of Boyko and Medvedchuk to Russia, it seems that they intend to be elected to the State Duma of the Russian Federation, rather than the Verkhovna Rada. “I recently returned from Popasna and Avdiivka. Local residents say that their every visit (Boyko and Medvechuk to the Russian Federation) is an increase in confrontation on the demarcation line and shelling. I understand that in order to effectively address a problem, it needs to be created. However, this is the highest degree of cynicism. I have very few words of censorship to describe it. I believe that only notorious villains can speculate on grief, war and lives,” the leader of the OPPOSITION BLOC noted.

Yevhen Muraiev also commented on the previously announced teleconference between the Ukrainian and Russian TV channels. According to the politician, such a dialogue should be conducted by personnel diplomats, rather than journalists.

“I remind, Ukraine has no ambassador to the Russian Federation, and Russia has no ambassador to Ukraine. At the same time, 3.5 million Ukrainians work in the Russian Federation. In fact, no one protects their rights. Instead, the country has been talking about teleconference for the fourth day. Isn’t it plain that a person who owns four media resources could have planned this teleconference not a week before the elections,” the politician added.

According to him, the teleconference with the Russian Federation is a political tool for promoting the goals of individual political forces in Ukraine. “Everything that happens a week before the election is manipulation. Who benefited from the discussion on teleconference? First of all, the one who said, “it never happened in my time”. This is Petro Poroshenko. Thus, the teleconference plays into the hands of Poroshenko, and representatives of the political force that initiated it. Teleconference should be conducted with our citizens – in the Crimea and in the Donbas – in order not try to speculate on the feelings of millions of people,” Yevhen Muraiev emphasized.
