The presenter stated that “the SBU is illegally detaining Medvedchuk.”
Putin’s godmother’s wife, People’s Deputy from OPZZ Viktor Medvedchukleading Oksana Marchenko recorded a video message to the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky.
In her appeal, Marchenko demands the immediate release of her husband, whom, in her words, “the SBU is holding illegally.”
“I appeal to President Zelensky. I ask you to take all necessary actions to immediately release my husband Viktor Vladimirovich Medvedchuk, who is illegally detained by the SBU. Viktor Vladimirovich did not violate any laws of Ukraine and did not leave its territory. He has always stood for peace, dialogue, harmony in Ukraine And you, Mr. President, know this very well,” Marchenko says in his address.
Marchenko added that “her husband is being persecuted because of political motives contrary to the laws of Ukraine”: “His life should be out of danger. I am waiting for your answer,” Medvedchuk’s wife said, referring to Zelensky.
It should be noted that the night before, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced the detention of Putin’s godfather, people’s deputy from the Opposition Platform for Life, Viktor Medvedchuk. Soon Zelensky offered Russia to exchange Medvedchuk for captured Ukrainians.
Recall that Medvedchuk was accused of high treason even before the start of a full-scale war. The court placed him under house arrest. After February 24, Medvedchuk ran away from home and went into hiding.
