Official Russia very calmly reacted to Poroshenko’s “creative” agitation, that causes an uproar in the Ukrainian segment of the web.
Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin calmly reacted to the use of President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in his election campaign the image of Vladimir Putin.
He told this to journalists, commenting on the election advertisement of the current Head of State in Ukraine, reports TASS.
“We choose Putin, but Ukrainians will have to decide,” said a Kremlin spokesman.
In Ukraine billboards, city lights and newspapers were installed with the image of Petro Poroshenko opposite to Vladimir Putin with the slogan about the “decisive choice” on April 21. Thus, the current president hints that in the second round of elections it will be necessary to choose not between him and Volodymyr Zelensky, but between the freedom of Ukraine and the revenge of the Kremlin.
Poroshenko’s election headquarters said they didn’t ask consent to the use of the image by Russian President Vladimir Putin since he was outside the law of Ukraine. But they assured that the plot on the images does not mean that in the President’s team they consider Zelensky to be Putin’s agent.
