How Medvedchuk taught Ukrainian justice a lesson

76

On May 13, a court in Kiev chose a measure of restraint for the leader of the Ukrainian opposition. Viktor Medvedchuk, dubbed "Putin's godfather" by the media and accused by the Ukrainian authorities of working for Russia, was placed under house arrest and ordered to wear an electronic bracelet.


What Viktor Medvedchuk was suspected of


The personality of Viktor Medvedchuk and her role in contemporary Ukrainian politics are quite interesting. The head of the political council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party, Viktor Medvedchuk, came to Ukrainian political life a very long time ago, at the very beginning of the 1990s, having previously gained quite substantial experience in the legal profession.

From the very beginning of the events in Donbass, Medvedchuk declared the need for a peaceful settlement of the conflict. At the same time, he was attracted by the regime of Petro Poroshenko as a mediator in negotiations on the exchange of prisoners, and performed many other important functions. How did it happen that Medvedchuk became a defendant in a criminal case, and not about some embezzlement, but about high treason?

Formally, it all started with the fact that on May 11, 2021, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Irina Venediktova, filed suspicion on two deputies of the country's Verkhovna Rada: the chairman of the political council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party, Viktor Medvedchuk, and his fellow party member Taras Kozak.

The deputies were charged with committing crimes, the responsibility for which is stipulated by Articles 111 and 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine - "High treason" and "Violation of the laws and customs of war and plunder of the occupied territories." The articles are serious and the terms for them are also impressive: under the first article - from 10 to 15 years in prison, and under the second - up to life imprisonment. True, even 15 years for 67-year-old Medvedchuk is akin to life imprisonment.

Medvedchuk was accused of having handed over documents on the Glubokaya oil field to Russia, told Taras Kozak, who is in Russia, information about one of the Ukrainian secret military installations, created the Luch (Promin) information network for pro-Russian propaganda among Ukrainians traveling to work in Russia.


Viktor Medvedchuk has long known Vladimir Putin

Ukrainian and foreign political scientists link the criminal case against Medvedchuk with the political struggle in Ukraine. Actually, this is how it is: recently, Rinat Akhmetov, who rarely gives interviews and does not particularly strive for publicity, declared his full support for the course of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.

A new political party "Ukraine is our home" is being created, which will apply for the same electorate that Medvedchuk's party "Opposition Platform - For Life" is currently processing. That is, there is a rivalry for that part of the electorate that is loyal to Russia - for the inhabitants of the regions of the east and southeast of Ukraine. To get this electorate to support Zelenskiy, we must first get rid of Medvedchuk.

Medvedchuk's visit to the prosecutor's office


Viktor Medvedchuk, unlike his namesake Viktor Yanukovych, did not flee to Russia. He himself came to the Ukrainian General Prosecutor's Office. Immediately after this visit, interesting things began to happen.

First, it turned out that in the press release, which was originally distributed by the Ukrainian prosecutor's office, the articles were mixed up: first, Medvedchuk was credited with suspicion of a crime under Article 348 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine "Attempt on the Life of a Serviceman." But we can hardly imagine Medvedchuk running under the fences of Ukrainian military units and taking off the sentries. It is clear that this article was attributed to the policy due to the carelessness and carelessness of Ukrainian prosecutors, and soon the media clarified the situation: Medvedchuk is suspected of committing a crime, responsibility for which is provided for in Article 438. The plundering of the occupied territories is about the Glubokoe deposit.

Further more. From the text of the suspicion, which Medvedchuk himself saw only on May 12, the mention of an episode with the issuance of the location of a secret military facility of the Ukrainian army to Russia disappeared. Apparently, prosecutors still bother to find out that there is no secret in the location of this object - information about it is publicly available on the Ukrainian Wikipedia, and you don't have to be a Russian FSB officer or a Ukrainian Medvedchuk to get to it. access. Any Ukrainian, Russian, and even Chinese or Japanese seventh grader with the skills of using the Google translator can easily find out where the top secret object is.


Checkmate from Viktor Medvedchuk


But even these are just “flowers”. Most importantly, Viktor Medvedchuk did not flee Ukraine, although the authorities constantly talked about the fact that he was about to flee to Russia. If Medvedchuk had really left, he would probably have avoided further risks, but he would have earned the stigma of a "Kremlin agent", and it would be very, very difficult to wash off this stigma. Now the situation has changed. Medvedchuk remained in Ukraine, and the authorities simply do not know what to do.

The most important resource for such political operations was spent - time. Now the investigation of the criminal case against Medvedchuk will drag on, and this will not have the best effect on the government's PR campaign. Moreover, Medvedchuk himself appeared at the Office of the Prosecutor General Venediktova and demanded to hand him the text of the suspicion. With this, he completely confused the cards of his opponents.

Apparently, the Prosecutor General's Office quickly realized this and that is why they changed the requirements for a preventive measure. If earlier the prosecutor's office demanded an unequivocal arrest of Medvedchuk and his placement in a pre-trial detention center, then after his visit they started talking about the possibility of a bail of $ 11 million. Like, if Medvedchuk contributes money, he will remain free until the trial. However, in this regard, the politician acted as competently as possible: Medvedchuk said that he did not have that kind of money, he would not pay bail and was ready to be arrested and placed in a pre-trial detention center. Checkmate, as they say.

After Medvedchuk's behavior, the prosecutor's office found itself in a very difficult situation. Now the imprisonment of a politician would look like a purely political repression, a manifestation of the competition in the Ukrainian political Olympus. As a result, on May 13, 2021, a court in Kiev did not satisfy the demand of the prosecutor's office to detain Medvedchuk and chose a measure of restraint in the form of placing the politician under house arrest.

Actually, there are two drawbacks - Medvedchuk had to hand over his foreign passport and agree to wearing an electronic bracelet to control his movements. But these are mere trifles compared to the fact that he remained at large. After all, house arrest for a person accused of such serious crimes only means that the court understands the far-fetched charges. Housewives were placed in pre-trial detention centers, who wrote posts on social networks about the movement of military equipment, and here such serious deeds!

Now the Ukrainian justice, and first of all - the General Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine, will have to extricate itself from the delicate situation in which this justice found itself due to the desire to please Volodymyr Zelensky. Having turned into a pawn in a political game, the prosecutor's office discredited itself in a professional sense: numerous errors in articles, inconsistency of actions, complete failure with demands to be arrested or released on bail.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian taxpayers have to continue paying for this entire circus out of their own pockets. After all, it is they who pay taxes on the maintenance of prosecutors, who are too lazy even to look at Wikipedia to check the validity of their “suspicions”. The patrons of Ukraine, the US Department of State, also had a hard time. So much money is invested in support of the anti-Russian regime in Kiev, but everything is in vain: the stupid satellites are not even able to competently organize a custom-made political process, which casts a shadow on their overseas patrons. Indeed, in any Guatemala with Colombia it was even easier.

    To talk seriously about the prosecutor's office of the Nazi Bandera gang Ukraine is ridiculously absurd. In a gang where Buzina's killers roam free, Nazis who burned people alive in Odessa Khatyn, where death squads kill people in the open, where the US appoints a prosecutor, prosecutors are nothing more than propagandists.

      Obviously, the conclusion is simple - which country (state), such is justice.

      In general, they treated Medvedchuk gently, like a VIP - a person who cannot be treated like mere mortals, prudently only "taking under house arrest" under the articles that provide for a cell in a pre-trial detention center ...

        The author is disingenuous, and ascribes to Medvedchuk what he did not do and did not declare.
        Medvedchuk, just supposedly a "hero of our time" of some kind, in the author's description ...

        They were clearly told in court that although his personal and business accounts were blocked and inaccessible to him, the issue of posting the bail "will be worked out."

        But, time has shown that the fuss with the collateral is not relevant. The court made a completely different decision, in which money is no longer important.

          The author is just not dissembling. Medvedchuk also said about the money that he did not have such a sum and that he was ready to be arrested. It was shown on TV with Medvedchuk's direct speech.
          Zelensky and the company, of course, expected that after such an accusation he would quickly leave and hoped that he would go to Russia. But they failed in full with their plan. Now they are racking their brains how to proceed with the accusations. Maybe Zelensky should also be reminded of the house in Crimea, for which he (his wife) carefully pays taxes to the "occupation" government?

            Do not offend the President's godfather, he is a rogue, that he does not have 10-11 million. Yes, but they were blocked.

            The prosecutor's office insisted on the arrest or bail of UAH 300 million (about $ 10 million). Medvedchuk said before the meeting that he has such an amount, but since his accounts are blocked, he is not able to deposit it.

              Medvedchuk did not run away from Ukraine

              If Yanukovych had not fled in 2014, there would have been no civil war.

            Zelensky will not puzzle. Their goal is to exclude Medvedchuk and his party from political life, not to put him in jail.
            The goal has been achieved. And the law in Ukraine is of little interest to anyone due to its selective application.

        The author writes about what he wants to see. There is a cleanup and Medvedchuk will sit down. This is just a formality - a bracelet, house arrest. And in general, Medvedchuk, these are renegades from the region. You can't count on him. And there are no pro-Russian forces there.

        The article speaks about the check and checkmate from Medvedchuk to the Ukrainian "justice" And most likely it will be the other way around. They will make a show trial. And there will be a check and checkmate to Medvedchuk himself. Well, and then, most likely, an exchange for the hohloned-witches sitting with us.

      - the negligence and carelessness of Ukrainian prosecutors,
      "We don't need smart ones. We need faithful ones ..."
      (Brothers Strugatsky "It is difficult to be God").
      Take a close look at the prosecutor general and the head of the SBU.
      They comment clearly with a doomed look.
      If anything, they are extreme. Like the Minister of Health Stepanov, who did not finish off health care, as his predecessor, the "reformer" Suprun, "bequeathed". She's Doctor Death.

    Everything that Russia can influence in Ukraine will be cut off and suppressed ... this is the essence of the run over Medvedchuk ...
    By the way, Zelensky said this openly.
    It will be bad if people who are loyal to Russia are imprisoned in Ukraine with only one suspicion of this on charges of high treason ... this will really be Hitler's Germany of the 30s ... the first sign of this will be the creation of labor camps and concentration camps for dissidents.

      In fact, after the 2014 coup, thousands of people have been jailed for 7 years "under one suspicion." And the torture at the SBU is not childish. But in the Russian Federation they prefer not to raise this topic at a high level.

          Yes, they are all opportunists, "socialists" and "communists", now, as in Brazil, Don Pedro cannot be counted. Some "socialists" are more socialist than others, and "communists" are more communist than the rest of the same parties. What prevents to unite and act as a single party ? Slippery floor? Narrow shoes? Each such party considers itself the sole heir of Marx, Engels, Lenin, and while they are fighting for the "ideological inheritance", everything will remain the same.

            Of these socialists and communists, probably a good half or even more are ordinary monetizers of the left protest. Even if they sympathize with the left movement, the main thing is to make money out of it. Therefore, there is a whole bunch of propagandists in the left movement, but there are no real cases for them or negligible, it is stupid for self-promotion. And I have a suspicion that there are enough provocateurs and guardians among all these kakbyvykh. The same Platoshkin is a very muddy type. It is unclear who is behind him and whether he is so proactive or with support. As far as his card is played by power or is he a random figure and for now on his own. He runs and screams at every corner that he is left, but for some reason Lenin did not consider such leftists to be left and he smashed mercilessly. Most of all, of course, infuriates the situation with people who believe him. Well, take it and read what the classics of Marxism write and compare it with the nonsense that this pea buffoon is talking about and everything will fall into place right away. But no. Or take the current left star - Semina. For me, he is quite a guardian with his rhetoric. Like it's not yet time for an open struggle, we must conduct propaganda, but then ... And then the soup with the cat. How will you do something later when you can't do nichrome now, although you can do it? For example, organize some kind of protest, participate in the trade union movement. Soon elections to the State Duma, there is not much left. Is there any movement among the quasi-silvers on the internet? There is nothing. And that's all you need to know about them. They will analyze the videos of other bloggers left and right, stream for donations where I criticize the authorities and that's it. In the month before the elections, a couple of videos will be released where I will criticize the elections and this is the end of the task. And it would be fine if there was something else in these two videos that was adequate. And then how some Vasya Dobby Sadonin will recommend to participate in them. Hand face.

      Is it worth fighting for people like Medvedchuk? No, of course Putin will not leave his godfather in trouble and most likely he will be exchanged. Yet again, the loyalty of these gentlemen is tied not to love for Russia, but to their business interests. They just want to fuck with us. I don't understand why Medvedchuk is turned into a pro-Russian politician. He has already betrayed once.

    Author! So what is Medvedchuk's “check and checkmate”? The fact that the politician, who is presented in the Russian Federation almost as a new mess for Ukraine, was put under house arrest? That is, they limited his freedom, localized his political opportunities? I would rather call it a departure from the Shah. How long? I do not know. True, now, in the event of a change in punishment, they will raise a howl that, they say, they have put a torch behind the bars!
    Medvedchuk is not as white and fluffy as they paint him to us. And the bulk of the electorate in Ukraine simply cannot stand him. Ever since then, when he was a lawyer for the poet V. Stus, who died in the dungeons. And mentioning him in conjunction with Putin simply puts an end to his political career.
    So this is by no means check and checkmate.

       And the bulk of the electorate in Ukraine simply cannot stand him.
      even with a statement in this form, I would argue. The authorities became more active when, according to all polls by the OPSL, Medvedchuk's party came out on top in the country in terms of electoral sympathies, with 22-25% of the vote. And this is in the presence of the party of Muraev and "Servant of the People"! And already in the South-East, the level of sympathy is significantly higher than in the center and in the west.
      Ever since then, when he was a lawyer for the poet V. Stus, who died in the dungeons.
      most of my compatriots, at best, will remember that they have heard this surname somewhere.
      And mentioning him in conjunction with Putin simply puts an end to his political career.
      You will be surprised, a noticeable part of Odessa citizens perceives this rather as a plus for him: "he will agree with his godfather, and for the world, and for the vaccine and for the trade with gas!"
      Yes, many in my trading region want to restore trade with Russia. Especially when those in power are doing their business with your country.

              If not for them, they would not have heard of Medvedchuk!
              I repeat, Medvedchuk is not very eager to appear in the foreground, he controls from the shadows. Although that moment of his negotiations with the godfather was not covered only by the lazy, naturally with a different presentation, positive or negative.

      Author! So what is Medvedchuk's “check and checkmate”? The fact that the politician, who is presented in the Russian Federation almost as a new mess for Ukraine, was put under house arrest? That is, they limited his freedom, localized his political opportunities? I would rather call it a departure from the Shah. How long? I do not know. True, now, in the event of a change in punishment, they will raise a howl that, they say, they have put a torch behind the bars!
      Medvedchuk is not as white and fluffy as they paint him to us. And the bulk of the electorate in Ukraine simply cannot stand him. Ever since then, when he was a lawyer for the poet V. Stus, who died in the dungeons. And mentioning him in conjunction with Putin simply puts an end to his political career.
      So this is by no means check and checkmate.

      Most of them get information about Ukraine from sites like this one. There is a bunch of sites that others throw on other links. And if in fact, then Medvedchuk should have been in prison 20 years ago. It's like a Ukrainian Chubais. Scum profited from people. And touch no way - Putin's godfather. I would put it against the wall together with the first privatizers (Gaidar, Chubais, etc.).

    The author is deeply mistaken or deliberately tries to divert from the essence.
    There is no Ukrainian justice in Ukraine. There are no pro-Russian parties in Ukraine.
    Politics in Ukraine is dead.
    Killing Medvedchuk or leaving him alive for the puppeteers is a matter of propaganda expediency.
    And these are very dangerous maneuvers. I think that the plan is to provoke a sharp reaction to the oppression of "Putin's godfather." Then it will become clear that the policy of the Russian Federation does not take into account the interests of the broad masses (population groups).

    The author described everything correctly in the article.
    After the failure to elect the Opposition Bloc, Akhmetov lost control over this electoral field. Muraev with his project is a pale moth against the background of Medvedchuk and Boyko, even with the infusions from the thimble-maker (with a separate TV channel and a budget for the party).
    Although, Russia can respond by including Akhmetov and Muraev in the non-grata lists. Checkmate.
    But Akhmetov is not included in this list as the last argument, since after such a step there will be only direct obstruction in relations with the Ukrainian oligarchy.

      So what? The US Embassy is in control. This is not politics. Akhmetov can be declared an enemy of the nation in the same way. And they are silent about the Ze-President's apartment in Crimea.
      There is no politics in Ukraine for a long time. Reacting to a propaganda picture in a box is infantilism. There are only two real options: the use of force to destroy the fascist Nazi regime or mutually beneficial "economic" cooperation with it. He is also a US customer.

          Actually, the occupation is not needed. It is enough to ensure the flight of bandit lackeys from the eastern regions, to plant new loyal authorities, and to stand on the line of contact until the completion of manning and equipping the Armed Forces of Novorossiya. The problem is different - there is nothing to offer conceptually. Changing "Business loyal to the States" to "Business loyal to Russia" is not realistic. If there were Soviet power in Russia, red flags would have been flying all over the left bank for 5 years already. And in our reality, - "Russia is the main trade partner of Ukraine", Bandera Ukraine. That's where the point is - in the Russian bourgeoisie.

    Let's not cry. Medvedchuk is not our friend. He is one of the sponsors of the Maidan. So it's not bad for him to sit. He is for the independence of Ukraine. But only he is in favor of milking Russia. He is not a friend to us. He is a real nationalist, only on the other side of Bandera. Just. Better for us to be Bandera members than such "friends". They will finish off Ukraine faster.

          I do not quite understand what it means "at the expense of Russia"? When they say on TV "taking into account the fraternal relations between our fraternal peoples," I instantly realize that our Kremlin is somewhere ... hiding behind and hiding behind "brotherhood". For some reason, more than one nation did not help us "brotherly" with money, resources, etc. .. In this, you and I, we think the same way. And Medvedchuk is a cunning fox, that's true. I hope the GDP is not a loshara. Time will tell.

    They just want to sell Medvedchuk to us on barter in exchange for their own, who are with us. And then it will be passed off as a peremog, how smart they are, and this one was kicked out of the country and those inmates were freed for free. The expectation that Putin will not abandon his godfather. Primitive thinking of primitive Banderlog. After all, this is not the first time that has happened, only before there were ordinary people, but now they want to expel the politician.

    Obviously, the conclusion is simple - which country (state), such is justice.

    In general, they treated Medvedchuk gently, like a VIP - a person who cannot be treated like mere mortals, prudently only "taking under house arrest" under the articles that provide for a cell in a pre-trial detention center ...


    So they feared the consequences. Even a simple lawyer is a big problem for the judicial system, he can only be intimidated by criminals in a cell, and here is a rich lawyer. So the prosecutors turned in fright.

    After Medvedchuk's behavior, the prosecutor's office found itself in a very difficult situation. Now the imprisonment of a politician would already look like a purely political repression, the manifestation of the competitive struggle in the Ukrainian political Olympus.
