A court in Kyiv has banned the pro-Russian Opposition Platform — For Life (OPZZh) political party led by jailed Kremlin-friendly politician Viktor Medvedchuk.
The Justice Ministry issued a statement after the Administrative Court of Appeals No. 8 handed down the decision on June 20, saying that the party’s property and assets will be confiscated by the State Treasury.
Ukraine placed sanctions on Medvedchuk in February 2021, freezing his assets, and took off the air three television stations it said belonged to him for promoting Russian propaganda. — Source: Radio Free Europe
