We demand to carry out formative reforms. Ukrainians should be provided with workplaces. Salaries and pensions should be deserving. Medicine should be affordable. Prices and tariffs should be fair”, – activists of the party stated.

In Kherson, there was a real fight for the right of Ukrainians to hold peaceful assemblies. The local city council attempted to forbid our action in court. When they lost the case, they engaged the local department of Security Service of Ukraine. They decided to perform absurd, but effective (according to them) scheme, namely, to call the leader of the “Uspishna Kraina” in Kherson region questioning on the day of the demonstration, on May 1, at 9:30. However, the truth is on our side. We do not give up”, – the politician wrote. The demonstration in Kyiv will take place on May 1 at 10:00 AM in the Mariinsky Park.
