Zelensky announces on Instagram that Ukraine’s SBU secret police have arrested pro-Russia opposition leader Viktor Medvedchuk, who is close to Putin. The SBU is known for torturing and killing opposition figures. I shudder to think what they’ll do to him, or may have already. pic.twitter.com/IVUbw4vtOg— Dan Cohen (@dancohen3000) April 12, 2022
This is a war between democracy and autocracy.
In Ukraine, Zelensky has banned opposition media and political parties and has arrested one of his leading political opponents and charged him with treason for escaping house arrest.
Note: Medvedchuk was featured in the Oliver Stone documentary Revealing Ukraine.
