The All-Ukrainian Union “Svoboda” re-elected Oleg Tyagnybok as leader of the party, made a decision on participation in elections to the united territorial community on October 29th, and submitted a plan for the “de-occupation” of Donbass and Crimea.
As the correspondent of the Interfax-Ukraine agency reports, the relevant decisions were made at a report-election congress on Saturday in Kiev.
O. Tyagnybok was unanimously re-elected as the leader of the party for the next two years, which is provided by the charter of “Svoboda“, also the governing bodies of this political force were re-elected. In addition, the party made the decision on participation in elections to the united territorial community on October 29th.
“Today our congress was attended by our sworn brothers from other nationalist parties, with who we signed a memorandum of cooperation half a year ago. And we once again confirmed that we will fight shoulder to shoulder against the external enemy – Muscovy, the Kremlin, occupation of Ukraine, and against the internal enemy – oligarchy and their henchmen,” noted O. Tyagnybok at a briefing after the end of the congress.
He reported that at the Congress changes were made to the party program, in particular, a new section was added devoted to the restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine, and overcoming the consequences of the occupation of Donbass and Crimea.
“Svoboda” suggests to develop a military plan for the liberation of the Crimean peninsula and Donbass from the occupiers, and to immediately begin the realization of its “reconnaissance and sabotage, economic, and informational component”, to introduce a total economic, energy, resource, and transport blockade of the temporarily “occupied” territories for their full de-occupation.
The nationalists support the elimination of the special status of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, and are against providing “special status” to the “occupied” territories. The party considers that it is possible to hold elections to local governments in the temporarily “occupied” territories only after full de-occupation.
Besides this, O. Tyagnybok announced the holding on October 14th of a large-scale march in Kiev on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the creation of UPA.
