As the President of Ukraine noted, the politician was hiding for 48 days.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskiy made a proposal to exchange the head of the political council of the Opposition Platform – For Life party Viktor Medvedchuk for Ukrainian prisoners of war.

“I propose that the Russian Federation exchange Medvedchuk for our guys in Russian captivity. Therefore, it is important that our law enforcement agencies and the military also consider this possibility,” he said in a video message on Wednesday.

According to the president, Medvedchuk hid for 48 days. “And finally he decided to try to escape from our state,” Zelensky said.

On Tuesday, the President of Ukraine announced the detention of Medvedchuk, posting on his Telegram channel a photo of a man similar to him in handcuffs. The press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that this photo should be checked due to a large number of fakes.
