Ivan Baloha comdemned political persecutions in Ukraine
On Wednesday the candidate in constituency number 73 Ivan Baloha met with educators of Beregovo. In particular, he talked with the teachers of Ukrainian language schools № 5 and № 1 and staff of the medical college. Among other things, the candidate was asked about the situation concerning the conviction of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and former Minister of Internal Affairs Yuriy Lutsenko.
"In my opinion the imprisonment of Tymoshenko and Lutsenko spoiled our relations with the West. In Europe they do not understand why upon the coming of the new government, former leaders of the country go to prison. These steps are questioning our European integration. This is a big mistake. Thus we are losing western vector of the development. I think that the solution should be sought in the political arena", - said Ivan Baloha.
