Vakarchuk harshly expressed about support for one of the presidential candidates, 2019.01.29, 14:58
The soloist of the "Ocean Elzy" group Svyatoslav Vakarchuk does not intend to support anyone in the next presidential election.
The artist said this on the eve, January 28, on the TV channel ZIK.
“I exclude the fact that, because of some political" delicacies ", because of personal ambitions or dividends, I could even start a conversation about supporting or not (someone from the presidential candidates - ed.) .
It is not a matter of self-interest, not a question of what will happen to you or whom you will help. At stake is much more - the fate of the state ", - said Vakarchuk.
In addition, he warned journalists, politicians and voters "against light schemes and simple solutions," since "the election of the president is a very serious and responsible matter."
“By the way, in my opinion, parliamentary elections should be considered as a whole. I do not think that today’s presidential election in Ukraine can be considered separately from parliamentary elections.
You can't place black squares separately on the chessboard, and white squares separately. Imagine that some are a consequence of presidential elections, and others are parliamentary, "said the singer.
According to him, the consequences of these decisions are interacting. Therefore, he explains, today it is important to enable the voter to make an informed choice, and then defend him.
"I mean not only at the polling stations and during the recount, but to protect politically. Much also depends on this.
Not only new people in politics will determine the fate of the state, but also the ability of a voter to influence politics, politicians and their accountability to people, "said Vakarchuk.
Recall, January 28, Svyatoslav Vаkarchuk said that he would not participate in the next presidential elections.
