The decision of the leader of “Ukrainian choice” Victor Medvedchuk to support the party “For life” is a response to the request of the voter the South-East. About this in his blog wrote a political consultant Yulia Komarova.
“At the end of July Rabinovich, in addition to his natural charisma, decided to buy more political weight. To add to his party status, he invited Viktor Medvedchuk. You can list multiple “for” and “against”, but from the point of view of sociology is clear: the decision Medvedchuk to maintain “For life” today is request oriented opposition voters (conventionally call it voter of the South-East),” — says Komarov.
Komarov argues that among the voters of the South-East, the vast majority is against NATO, the war in Donbas and the Association Agreement EU-Ukraine. In turn, Medvedchuk is the Central figure of the “party of peace”, an ideological supporter of the neutral status of Ukraine and politician who in the days of Yanukovych fundamentally opposed the Association Agreement EU-Ukraine.
The analyst stresses that the Medvedchuk is responsible for peace in the Donbas and the restoration of relations with Russia and CIS countries.
“And, as we know, on the question of relations with the EU Medvedchuk opposed even Yanukovych and the Party of regions in their “best years”. Even then, as the leader of “Ukrainian choice”, he is scathing criticized the Association Agreement EU-Ukraine.
“Now, therefore, Rabinovich & Co have every right to go to people and say that the disappointing predictions came true. And, the next step is to offer recipes for salvation of the Ukrainian economy. Judging by the fact that Medvedchuk is responsible for peace in the Donbas and the restoration of relations with Russia and CIS countries, it will be the resuscitation of the industrial, commercial and cooperation ties with Russia”, — says Komarov.
The analyst stresses that, inviting Medvedchuk, “For life” not only got a chance to get ahead of the “Opposition bloc”, but also to go beyond the electorate of the Southeast, appealing to new groups of voters.
