The new move of the spin doctors of the incumbent president has stirred up the network pretty well. The juxtaposition of Poroshenko or Putin has received the most direct of all possible visualizations on the new billboards. However, not everyone liked it. Read what exactly has caused society’s indignation in Reactions from Opinion.
The ex-presidential candidate Anatolii Hrytsenko was the first to criticize the new billboards of Poroshenko. He is convinced that the guarantor allegedly consciously splits the country in half by such propaganda advertising.
And of course, Mr. Hrytsenko did not fail to emphasize that he has never had and will never have advertising of such content.
However, the most frequently asked question is something like this: if someone voted not for the incumbent president, does this mean that they voted for Putin? For example, such thesis was voiced by the people’s deputy and ex-journalist Svitlana Zalishchuk.
The blogger Sergey Naumovich has a similar opinion.
People’s deputy Mustafa Nayyem has basically repeated the words of his colleague, Svitlana Zalishchuk. However, the ex-journalist gave advice to Poroshenko’s staff to change the spin doctors, because now they “are no different from Manafort and Shuvalova, who have divided Ukraine into three grades”. In the end, Nayyem also notes that such rhetoric is dangerous.
The journalist Rostyslav Demchuk is convinced that the portrait of Putin refers to Volodymyr Zelensky. In addition, the author notes that such moves are a matter of jurisdiction, and there are grounds to sue them for both Zelensky and… Putin.
The media consultant Dmytro Simanskyi noted that the new billboards are the evidence of very serious civil and professional degradation of the government.
But the journalist Mariana Pietsukh reminded the words Poroshenko said about Putin and Zelensky just yesterday, which… how should we put it – which do not correspond with the new billboards.
The political scientist Petro Oleshchuk is convinced that there are enough reasons to apply not only the rules of the legislation on elections but also the law on advertising to such advertisements. It is prohibited to “put an image of an individual or use his name without the written consent of that person”. And there is a question: did Putin give his permission? And one more thing: is it a demonstrative disregard of the rules or an attempt to mess up in a beautiful way?
But the blogger and public figure Andrii Smolii stood up for the new Poroshenko’s propaganda advertising, stressing that the country is divided by those who are trying to run from one leader to another, from one ideology to another, from one vector of development of the country… Right, again to another.
The blogger Myroslav Oleshko also considers the new billboards as true.
The people’s deputy Andrii Levus has also criticized those who noted that the new billboards allegedly split the state.
Yevhenii Buderatsky, the deputy editor of Ukrainska Pravda, is also surprised by such criticism of Poroshenko’s advertising.
Reactions were collected and the billboards weren’t seen by Stepan the Goat
