After Ukraine became an independent state, it was known as the permanent place of holding elections, in which not only the result unknown until the last moment, but remain secret mechanisms that work in favor of creating some electoral alliances, and the destruction of reputations of participants in the political struggle.

Let THAT and WHO is the agreement on the establishment of the “Opposition platform For life”, which was announced on 9 November, no one will tell you – either Boyko or Vadim Rabinovich. But nothing prevents us to talk, without asking neither Boyko nor Rabinovich, in whose interest it created such an Alliance with a high degree of probability of guessing the names of politicians (and businessmen), who requested anonymity.

But first the chronology: on Friday morning, about 9:30, the co-Chairman of the party “Opposition bloc” Yuriy Boyko, the leader of the party “For life” Vadim Rabinovich, along with the witnesses and live news TV channels broadcast from the event, sign an agreement establishing “the Opposition platform For life”. And hug, not letting go of the same paper.

Boyko invited all opposition forces to unite on the platform. But none of the numerous parties, which is in opposition – as represented in Parliament and extra-parliamentary – were unwilling to join: neither “Fatherland” nor “Samopomich”, the Radical party, no, no “movement new forces,” neither “citizenship” nor “Demalyansa”.

Moreover, barely restraining himself from unparliamentary expressions, Borys Kolesnikov, another co-chair of the Opposition bloc, said: “It was a briefing leader of the party “For life” Vadim Rabinovich and co-Chairman of the party “Opposition bloc” Yuriy Boyko. But enterprises are at conventions. Therefore, the presence of Boyko at a briefing – is it private initiative, this has nothing to do with the “Opposition bloc”. Monday will convene the political Council, which will determine the legal status of these actions.”

Kolesnikov currently is not a member of Parliament, but really wants to return to Parliament, it can be understood

He looks at the ratings of the Opposition bloc and he likes them. And then my husband Oksana Marchenko, which produces natural modesty to the forefront Rabinovich, offers a modification of the “Opposition bloc “Not so!” from which no voter will not increase nor hypothetical parliamentary seats.

The Deputy of the faction “the Opposition bloc” Vadim Novinsky, which is occupied by the fact that under the parliamentary elections spins its own political force – the Party of peace, said that “the signing of some agreement” is “a private initiative of Yury Boyko and Sergey Levochkin”.

Good, thanks for the comment, this phrase allows us to extend synonymic row: Boyko – Lyovochkin – Firtash. On the one hand. And the opposite: Kolesnikov – Novinskiy – Akhmetov.

And as the third force – the husband of Oksana Marchenko. But it will return. In the meantime, in chronological order, continue with our story. So, on Monday, November 12, held a political Council of party “Oppositional block”, the details of which shares Novinsky. Found no support nor offer Kolesnikova assemble Congress which would decide the fate of the unions with the party “For life” or offer Boyko – to approve the agreement on the establishment of the “Opposition platform For life” as the fact occurred.

“We are trying to “breed” has at least four years,” said Novinsky. He repeats that the notorious agreement refers to them as a private initiative of Yury Boyko and Sergey Levochkin. “And if it is their personal initiative, so they like to be in the party “For life”, they can safely start there”.

It is noteworthy that late in the evening of 11 November, on the eve of the political Council of Opposition bloc, the Chairman of the political Council of the party “For freedom” Viktor Medvedchuk, better known as the husband of Oksana Marchenko, posted on the website of the TV channel “112 Ukraine” the interview under the title “”the Oppositional platform For life” has a clear program for how to establish peace and save the economy”, but in the text there is no mention.”The opposition platform For life”, nor the “Opposition bloc”.

There is a hurry – what with the signing of the agreement on the creation of a platform that interviews, in which there was at least mention of the Covenant Boyko – Rabinovich

And the same rash was the reaction of the part of the Opposition bloc, which is beyond the control of Firtash and Lyovochkin, and is associated with Akhmetov and Kolesnikov.

One thing is already clear: “For life” will find a partner for the campaign for the elections in the face of the “Batkivschyna”, “Samopomich”, the Radical party, the “movement of new forces”, “Civil position”, “Demalyansa”, than to unite with the Opposition bloc.

And, paradoxically, the biggest hindrance to the formation of the Alliance between the fragments of the Party of regions, party “For life” is not the toxicity of the identity of the husband of Oksana Marchenko, and his open play in Russia’s favor.

“The opposition bloc” can count in 2019 on the inertia of its constituents, as in 2014, who are loyal to them more from habit, or want to protest the current government – the benefit is for that.

But even in such a conservative environment as the former electorate of the Party of regions, able to understand that the changes that occurred – not in the best side – there is a fault of the Kremlin.
