European Solidarity: Poroshenko’s persecution is purely political

On May 26, armed special task force of the State Bureau of Investigation committed a blatant attack on the National Center of Folk Culture “Ivan Honchar Museum”.

The SBI attempted to seize a Poroshenko’s private collection of paintings, which the family presented to the media and plans to make available to visitors after the quarantine is over.

The SBI did not have a court order to enter the premises, much less to seize the collection. The political conclusions are obvious.

After Volodymyr Zelensky’s threats against Petro Poroshenko that the incumbent head of state’ voiced during a press conference, it became clear that the persecution of the fifth president was purely political and is being done ordered and pressured by the incumbent.

European Solidarity demands that Volodymyr Zelensky immediately return to the legal constitutional field, stop using the law enforcement system to hunt down the opposition, stop destroying Ukraine’s strategic partnership with Western partners, and finally start doing something more objective for the state than base spectacles. 

“We have filed relevant statements of crime in excess of the rights and powers of a law enforcement officer, forgery, falsification of the so-called search report, obstruction of lawful activities of journalists, obstruction of parliamentarians, obstruction of a lawyer and a number of other articles of the Criminal Code”, said the lawyer of the fifth President Petro Poroshenko Ihor Holovan.
