Medvedchuk’s wife announces intention to go into politics
Oksana Marchenko, the wife of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada member representing the Opposition Platform – For Life party faction, Viktor Medvedchuk, has announced her intention to go into politics for “the protection of the Ukrainian people.”
“Until yesterday I was the wife and the mother of his [Medvedchuk’s] children. But you forced me to take the political weapon in order to stand beside my husband and work towards our common goal as a single front. Now you’re getting not only Medvedchuk, but also Marchenko, although I did not aspire to go into politics. You left me no choice. Today, I’m joining the Opposition Platform – For Life party, where I see the protection of the Ukrainian people as my main task,” Marchenko said in a video address published on her YouTube channel.
At the same time, she described her and her husband Medvedchuk as “law abiding citizens” and “the future of Ukraine.”
According to her, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, alongside his team and the Shefir brothers, visited her house in 2003, seeking help with employment, and received it then.
