We note that immediately after these words he switched to the Ukrainian language.

“Now in Ukraine there is a situation where every Ukrainian has three ways. The first way is to live as you live, go with the flow, and this is normal, this is everyone’s choice. The second way is to collect your things and go to another country to earn money there and transfer them to your friends and relatives ... and this is also normal. But there is a third way - to try to change something in Ukraine itself. And I chose him for myself, ”the leader of the 95 Quarter stressed.

He stressed that everyone asks him about participation in the presidential elections: “are you going or are you not going?”.

“You know, unlike our great politicians, I did not want to promise you uselessly. And now, a few minutes before the New Year, I will promise you something and immediately fulfill it. Dear Ukrainians, I promise you to go to the presidents of Ukraine and immediately execute. I go to the Presidents of Ukraine. Let's do it together. Happy New Year! With the new servant of the people!
