The ex-head of the parliamentary faction the Party of Regions Oleksander Yefremov left prison on July 24 in Starobelsk, Luhansk region. He stated he was going to prove that there were only good and decent people in Party of Regions.
According to Oleksandr Yefremov, now he will use all his forces to whiten the reputation of both his own party and Party of Regions which does not exist anymore.
“The main task for me is to prove that I, as a member of the Party of Regions, am innocent and that more than a million people who were in the Party of Regions are good, decent people who live in Ukraine and consider themselves Ukrainian,” assures Yefremov.
He also added that in the current political situation in the country he understands little since he was limited in the access to information.
“It does not indicate that I cut down on political engagement but when you spend three years in prison, telling that you will be instructing someone right now is not a good thing,” Yefremov said.
Recall that on July 30, 2016, the ex-head of the Party of Regions faction Oleksandr Yefremov was detained on suspicion of encroachment upon the territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine. In addition to attacking the territorial integrity and inviolability of the country, Yefremov was suspected of direct support of the criminal organization “LNR”, as well as the illegal possession of the property “Luhanskcoil”.
