We have faced political repressions because Samopomich is doing right things for Ukraine, – Andriy Sadovyi

Today, May 20, a press conference of the Samopomich political party was held in Zaporizhia. One of the main topics is political persecution of party representatives.

Recently, the pro-government structures’ repressions against the Samopomich party have reached their critical point. Because of the political force’s principled nature and the reluctance of others to give up on corrupt schemes, Samopomich is under intense pressure. Lviv, Kyiv, Lutsk, Zhytomyr, Kharkiv, Zaporizhia – there is pressure exercised on our representatives all over Ukraine.

The leader of Samopomich, Lviv city mayor Andriy Sadovyi has noted that party representatives are under pressure because the party is doing the right things for Ukraine.

“I am very concerned about the persecution that is being carried out against members of our party. Head of the Zaporizhia regional organization, deputy chairman of the regional council, Vladyslav Marchenko, has a criminal proceeding opened against him. Natalia Chyzh – head of the Zhytomyr regional organization, secretary of the Zhytomyr city council – searches in her house at the time when she is not there. The car of Mrs. Voitsitska, one of the active deputies of the Verkhovna Rada, was set on fire. Unauthorized entry into the premises of Oleh Bereziuk. Over the last year the home of Oleh Lavryk – MP, chair of the party’s executive committee – has been illegally entered twice. Head of the Volyn regional organization and secretary of the Lutsk city council was illegally suspended from performing her duties. First deputy head of the regional council, head of the Lviv regional organization Paraskeviya Dvorianyn was removed from her post. I can continue this list. These are the things that cannot be acceptable in the time after the Revolution of Dignity. But now in Ukrainian politics you must be prepared for the fact that tomorrow you can be arrested and jailed,” commented the chairman of the Samopomich party Andriy Sadovyi.

The event was also attended by the Vice Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oksana Syroyid, the head of the Samopomich parliamentary faction Oleh Bereziuk, and a people’s deputy, the chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Prevention and Combating Corruption Yehor Soboliev.

We shall recall that on May 20, the twelfth congress of the Samopomich Union political party took place in Zaporizhia; it gathered more than 50 delegates from all over the country.
