There is no evidence to suggest that the Ukrainian election will intervene it is Russia, not Germany, the US or Israel. Such opinion on air of TV channel “112 Ukraine” was expressed by the political expert Vasily Makarov, commenting on statements of the President of Petro Poroshenko on the possible intervention of Russia in the presidential elections in Ukraine.
“Let’s consider the very idea – why Poroshenko thinks and argues that elections in Ukraine will intervene only Russian? But if, for example, in our elections will interfere with the US or Germany, or Israel? I have been living in our country, you know politics from the inside. Moreover, the political consultant. If Poroshenko initiates something – it is designed independently to eliminate their competitors,” he said.
“I think that Mr. Poroshenko, who actually wants to have, obviously, be elected, although not officially stated, is to do everything that its competitors, who have other political views or other position in order to overcome not constitutional, not by election, but by administrative pressure. It seems to me that Poroshenko will initiate some of the issues that can create a situation for law enforcement, what is called to carry out political repression against their political opponents”, – he added.
We will remind, earlier Poroshenko has instructed the Council of national security and defense to include a separate meeting on counter-intervention of the Russian Federation in elections.
Note that the next presidential elections in Ukraine must pass in the spring of 2019.
