Oleg Tsarev: Ukraine Won’t Be Able to Independently Recover From the Consequences of Maidan

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard



The consequences of the events on Maidan, the anniversary of which was celebrated on 22.11.16 in Ukraine, led to the fact that the country was put in a very difficult situation, said the politician Oleg Tsarev to Life.

“The prerequisites for Ukraine to be independently cleansed no longer exist. It is impossible now — I don’t see a way that people can come to the polls, vote, return everything as before… The party of war is in power, they are in power in the Parliament. The blood of the victims on Maidan, of thousands of troops and civilians who died on both sides of the front are on these people… These people understand that while there is still a war, they will not be asked questions. When the war is over, they will have to answer for what they did with the country, so they will hold on to power at all costs, and since they control the media, the death squads of Ukrainian nationalists work, who clean up the opposition field, I don’t see the preconditions to resolve the situation in Ukraine in a political way,” said Tsarev.

He reminded that the rating of the President of Petro Poroshenko is now very low.

“There is deja vu like with Yushchenko, only with more disastrous consequences for Ukraine. So many people died… cities destroyed,” noted the politician.
