Marchenko will be interrogated in the court which tried Maidan participants

Chairman of the Samopomich faction in the Verkhovna Rada, Oleh Bereziuk, is convinced that Vladyslav Marchenko, the deputy chairman of the Zaporizhia regional council, was sent precisely to Kharkiv, because the judicial system there is absolutely under the control of the authorities.

“The trial will be held in court, which in 2014 tried Maidan participants, and the very same judges are still working there. The notice of suspicion that was handed to Marchenko is politically motivated; the collected “facts” have nothing to do with Vladyslav. They could have been applied to each of us,” Bereziuk says.

People’s deputies from the Samopomich faction consider such accusations to be an attempt to intimidate and start political persecution. Therefore, they will support the head of the Zaporizhia Samopomich organization during the court session on determining the preventive measure.

Marchenko’s interrogation will take place at 15:00. Then there will be a briefing with the participation of Marchenko’s lawyers and people’s deputies from the Samopomich faction Oleh Bereziuk, Roman Semenukha, Oleh Lavryk, and Taras Pastuh outside the building of the Kharkiv region prosecutor’s office.
