The story of the film about the Ukrainian poet and dissident Vasyl stone is a provocation by Americans. About this on air of the project “a Great interview with a great politician” on TV channel “112 Ukraine” said the leader of “Ukrainian choice” Viktor Medvedchuk.
“I didn’t know that the film about stone. Me it in any way, including now not interested. I have read the evaluation, and the first thing I read about this film, is an interview and evaluation of Stus’s son, who said that this movie is funny to him. I don’t know how it is of value for history, for destiny of the poet”, – he said.
“This provocation is one of the stages that make Americans today. We have proof of that. That is, they always provoke. This is what you are doing, because Medvedchuk today is a public position, Medvedchuk today in public policy, and Medvedchuk for their enemy. I confirm – I am their enemy. I will do everything for Ukraine to be independent and sovereign without the influence and control of the United States. This is yet another provocation, which today, unfortunately, is the place to be. And we’ll also survive. I’m on the case Stus, which was 38 years ago, happy that for 38 years, the Americans found nothing new. The story twisted”, – said Medvedchuk.
“I performed an official duty. I didn’t break the law, and numerous commissions from the legal profession in the years of independence of Ukraine has established my innocence, I was right as a lawyer. In this regard, I was five times re-elected President of the Union of lawyers of Ukraine, since 1990 and 2005. To colleagues I’m clean. Before fate and life by Stus I’m clean, everything I could, I did. If he hadn’t fought with the Soviet authorities, he would not have been a fighter for the independence of Ukraine”, – he said.
Earlier it was reported that the son of a Ukrainian poet and dissident Vasyl Stus – Dmytro Stus said that the authors of the film about his father broke all prior arrangement, so he did not intend to cooperate with them in the future.
