The ‘European Solidarity’ party statement claims the arrest of Poroshenko’s assets is ‘another step’ of Zelensky administration in their clampdown on Ukrainian opposition.
The statement stresses Zelensky actions are irresponsible in light of recent military move of Moscow at Ukrainian borders and its inteference in Kazakhstan domestic affairs.
The court decision to arrest Poroshenko’s assets is unlawful and unjust, said European Solidarity leadership, arguing that Ukrainian officials are following the policies of Putin and Lukashenko regimes.
Apart from Petro Poroshenko’s property, the court arrested the assets of ‘Priamyi’ and ‘5 kanal’ TV channels he doesn’t own, which comes as a blunt attack against freedom of speech.
‘Petro Poroshenko will return to Ukraine despite all threats ‘to defend Ukraine from incompetent leadership and external aggression’, the statement concludes.
Earlier in the day, it was reported that the Kyiv court arrested assets of the former president.
