Ihor Smeshko, an ex-presidential candidate and ex-head of the SBU, said that he and his political force “Power and Honor” would not support the incumbent President Petro Poroshenko in the runoff. He wrote about this on his Facebook page.
“We have not supported or are going to support the incumbent political power in the person of Petro Poroshenko in the second round of the presidential election, and we believe that Petro Poroshenko, who did not meet the hopes of millions of Ukrainians and repulsed the ideals of the Maidan, should go down in history, unfortunately, not a hero”, he wrote.
“As to the numerous questions: “How do you now dispose of your electoral support?” I answer: “ I will never trade Ukraine and my compatriots, voters and potential supporters. I have not been looking for any positions in the government and I am not looking for any talks on these topics,” Smeshko added.
