The chairman of the movement “Ukrainian choice is the right of the people” Viktor Medvedchuk in an interview with the TV channel “112 Ukraine” stated that at present Ukraine is under external control of the United States, with which Kiev needs to be done away with.
“We [Ukraine] are under external control of the United States, and they do what they want, today they do. And therefore, one of the political tasks that I set is to abolish and put an end to any external management that will be present in the future in the territory of Ukraine, ”said Medvedchuk.
As an example, he cited the work of banks in Ukraine, on whose activities American financial institutions have a direct influence, in particular through the use of sanctions. Medvedchuk said that in one of the banks where he has personal and corporate accounts, he was told that they need to be closed, as he is under US sanctions.
“Our banks have correspondent accounts in American banks, and they are afraid of penalties from the Americans if they cooperate, and this cooperation in terms of financial services for people who have fallen under American sanctions,” Medvedchuk explained.
He called this situation absurd and wondered why he, a Ukrainian citizen, was obliged to suffer from local banks just because “someone imposed sanctions.”
