Frontman of Okean Elzy band goes into politics. Singer Vakarchuk introduced his party and team


The leader of the well-known Ukrainian rock band Okean Elzy Svyatoslav Vakarchuk announced that he was going into politics, and introduced his party – Golos (“The Voice”).

The singer introduced members of his team, including the former fighter of the “Right Sector” Andrei Sharaskin (“Bohema”), the Executive Director of Transparency International Ukraine Yaroslav Yurchishin, the former Deputy Minister of Justice Yulia Klimenko, the former Head of the Odesa region Solomiya Bobrovska.

According to Vakarchuk, it is in the parliament that major changes are taking place in the country, and Golos will take part in the upcoming elections to the Verkhovna Rada.

We are ready for change! It’s time for the whole country to speak. I do not keep silent. We do not keep silent. Your voice is important!

According to Vakarchuk, the first thing that the party will defend is the interests of Ukraine and Ukrainians. In second place is the European choice of Ukraine. This is followed by a free economy without oligarchs, the equality of all before the law and the accountability of power to the people.
