Chumak: Medvedchuk has certain privileges because he is the political father Poroshenko

The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko came to big politics thanks to the leader of the movement «Ukrainian choice» Viktor Medvedchuk, so the latter now has certain privileges. On this edition of «GORDON» said the MP Viktor Chumak, commenting on Medvedchuk’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in occupied Crimea.

«First of all, it is worth saying that Ukrainian citizens are not forbidden to visit the occupied Crimea. Medvedchuk – the political father of Poroshenko. So, he has certain privileges. If you remember, Poroshenko came to the Verkhovna Rada in 1998, the 11th number in the list of the party SDPU(o). That is almost 20 years old history of relations. What can I say? The situation is the following: to friends – everything, to enemies – the law» – said Chumak.

Putin and the Russian government delegation arrived in the annexed Sevastopol on August 18. The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine sent a note to the Russian foreign Ministry in connection with the arrival in Sevastopol of the delegation at the head with Putin.

As reported by RBC with reference to its own sources, on the same day in the occupied Crimea, Putin held a closed meeting with Medvedchuk.

Viktor Medvedchuk headed the Administration of President Leonid Kuchma from 12 June 2002 to 21 January 2005. From may 2015, Medvedchuk is part of the sub-group on humanitarian issues in the framework of the Minsk tripartite contact group. Subgroup deals with the exchange of prisoners in Eastern Ukraine.
