The politician says that he is envied because he is the best friend of “the most influential and famous person in the world.”
The Head of the Political Council of the party “The Opposition Platform – For Life”, Viktor Medvedchuk, said that in Ukraine his status of Vladimir Putin’s best friend is greatly envied.
He said this in an interview with the TV channel “112 Ukraine”, commenting on why he is often referred to not as a political figure, but as to the best friend of the Russian president.
“They are so jealous that they want to emphasize once again: Medvedchuk is Putin’s best friend,” he said.
According to him, he is envied because he is the best friend of “the most influential and famous person in the world.”
“So I forgive all of this. And if they think that they get me with it, they are mistaken,” he said.
Medvedchuk added that such mention of him is made in order to turn people against him, given the Ukrainian-Russian relations.
