On “112” viewers were urged to write letters of thanks to Medvedchuk – monitoring
Authors:Marina DovzhenkoAccording to various versions, the head of the political council of the “Opposition Platform – For Life” has returned from 500 to 1,600 prisoners and has never deceived anyone.
Medvedchuk’s TV channels (112, ZIK and NewsOne) have made considerable efforts to cover the prominent role of the chairman of the Opposition Platform For Life political council in the return of Ukrainians captured by the separatists . In particular, NewsOne spoke about the militants, who ” no longer consider Zelensky’s team worthy participants in the negotiations on the conflict in Donbass,” and on Channel 112, former regional Anna Herman urged viewers to write letters of thanks to Medvedchuk. This is stated in the monitoring of information TV channels for January 18-24, 2021 .
Commentators mentioned during the week how many people had already been returned by Medvedchuk, but did not agree on the numbers. People’s Deputy from the “Opposition Platform – For Life” Renat Kuzmin claimed that it was about 1,600 people. Political commentator Dmytro Marunych said about 1,000, Yuriy Dudkin said about 900. And the leader of the youth wing of the OPZZh and the top manager of the 112 channel Artem Marchevsky claimed : “Actually more than 500.”
Renat Kuzmin directly told ZIK that Russian militants were handing over prisoners to Medvedchuk to show that the Ukrainian authorities were sabotaging exchanges. And the host of the channel stated that Zelensky simply has no desire to engage in exchange.
Former People’s Deputy from the Party of Regions Anna Herman on the air of “112 Ukraine” called on viewers to write letters of thanks to the leader of the OPZH. Renat Kuzmin praised Medvedchuk for his “civil courage” on NewsOne and stressed that Russian militants were “persuading” Putin’s godfather to take the prisoners. Oleg Voloshin at ZIKu argued that Zelensky dislike Medvedchuk, because he shows that anything is possible, and remove the sanctions, and to receive the vaccine, and to release prisoners. Vadim Rabinovych stated on the same channel that Medvedchuk had never deceived anyone.
We will remind, on January 16 representatives of occupiers declared that they are ready to transfer four prisoners personally to Victor Medvedchuk, instead of to the official Ukrainian power. The Ukrainian delegation to participate in the Tripartite Contact Group stated that Russia and Medvedchuk were trying to use the prisoners in their political interests. On January 21, the head of the Ukrainian delegation, Leonid Kravchuk, announced that the transfer of prisoners had been suspended because the plane that was supposed to bring people had not taken off. On January 23, Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Lyudmyla Denysova announced that the transfer would take place on the route Rostov-on-Don – Minsk – Kyiv, but so far this has not happened.
