After the dispute over the “congratulations on the Day of Russia” Irina Vereshchuk did not stop attacking Poroshenko in a talk show – monitoring
Authors:Marina DovzhenkoThe People’s Deputy from the “Servant of the People” criticized the former president on the channels of Medvedchuk, Kolomoisky and Akhmetov.
People’s Deputy Iryna Vereshchuk of the Servant of the People, who accused Petro Poroshenko of pleasing Putin on ICTV’s Freedom of Speech program on July 6, criticized the former president and his political force in three more political talk shows over the past week. This is stated in the monitoring of political talk shows for July 6-12, 2020 .
During the Freedom of Speech broadcast, Vereshchuk claimed that in 2014, Petro Poroshenko congratulated President Vladimir Putin on Russia Day. When the former president of Ukraine denied this and asked the people’s deputy to name the sources, she first referred to the Ukrainian National News website (which was mistakenly attributed to Serhiy Lyovochkin, apparently confusing it with the Ukrainian News news agency), and then to Channel 24. Later, during an advertising break, she clarified that the primary source was Putin’s spokesman.
Later, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied that Poroshenko welcomed Putin in 2014. Instead, Vereshchuk did not admit her assertion as a fake and cited a number of Ukrainian media outlets as an argument. ” If a message about congratulations appeared on the official website of the Kremlin, and the Ukrainian media reprinted it, but if it is not true, Poroshenko had several years (!) To refute it, but did not refute it. Why? Forgot? Didn’t consider it important? Probably because he knows the truth. Everything secret becomes clear. Sooner or later , “she wrote.
The references she cited, in particular to the BBC and Radio Svoboda , wrote about congratulations on Russia Day with references to the Interfax-Ukraine news agency, RIA Novosti, the official website of the Kremlin and Dmitry Peskov. None of the reports contain a hyperlink to the Russian original source. According to a quote from Liga.net , you can find in Google a link to a message on the Kremlin’s website , which states that Poroshenko congratulated Putin on Russia Day.
In the following days, Vereshchuk also criticized the former president and his team on the talk show Pulse on Channel 112, Right to Power on 1 + 1 and Freedom of Speech on Savik Shuster on Ukraine. In particular, Pulse called for a revision of Ukraine’s association agreement with the European Union, while the Right to Power denied Poroshenko’s prominent role in strengthening the Ukrainian army and the “political repression” of the current government against the former president. In Freedom of Speech, she argued with former Groysman Prime Minister Volodymyr Omelyan, who claimed that Poroshenko had “created an army.”
