The leader of the Ukrainian party "Opposition Platform - For Life" (Opposition Platform - For Life) Viktor Medvedchuk, being imprisoned under house arrest, remains in the status of a deputy of the Verkhovna Rada. But at the same time, he will not be able to attend its meetings and influence decision-making.
This was told by the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmitry Razumkov at yesterday's briefing, a fragment of which was posted on YouTube by the Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada.
If he is under house arrest, then he will not be able to participate in the hall of the Verkhovna Rada, because this would be a violation of the conditions of the restrictions adopted by the court.
- said Razumkov.
The speaker found it difficult to answer the question of how Medvedchuk will be able to participate in the activities of the parliamentary committee for human rights, de-occupation and reintegration of the so-called "occupied territories", which he is a member of. At the same time, Razumkov added that the leader of the HLS will be able to perform all other duties not related to his presence in the Verkhovna Rada, if the court allows him to do so.
Thus, it turns out that due to judicial restrictions, Medvedchuk will not be able to participate in the political life of Ukraine for some time.
On May 11, the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine presented suspicions of treason and an attempt to steal state resources to the Ukrainian opposition politician Viktor Medvedchuk. Two days later, an electronic bracelet was put on him, his passport was taken away and he was placed under house arrest around the clock.
