He also announced his party's participation in the early parliamentary elections in Ukraine, which are scheduled for July 21.

"Our party is going to the polls to create a large faction in parliament and implement the Minsk agreements," he wrote.

As reported by UNIAN, earlier Medvedchuk announced that he would come out of the negotiation process with the Russian Federation regarding Donbas. According to him, the political force to which he belongs does not support the course of the new president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky. In turn, the head of Zelensky's Administration Andriy Bohdan said on May 24 that he did not think pro-Russian politician Medvedchuk could help establish contacts with Russia.

He also clarified that Zelensky and himself were not personally acquainted with Medvedchuk.
