Co-chairman of the Opposition Platform - For Life party Viktor Medvedchuk is a threat to the national security of Ukraine. This was stated by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksandr Danylyuk in an interview with BBC Ukraine.
When asked whether he sees a threat to national security in the fact that Medvedchuk got into the parliament, Danylyuk answered: "It is obvious that Medvedchuk has a clear pro-Kremlin orientation, and yes, he will use the parliament not just to sit there. Is it a threat? Yes, it is a threat".
However, Danylyuk stressed that Ukraine is a democratic country.
"But all in all, he was elected as deputy, Ukraine is a democratic state, so we should be able to work with such challenges in the parliament. And not only in the parliament", - he said.
