Ordinary party member General Secretary

Roman Blashko, an international observer at the referendum in the Zaporizhzhia region, admitted that there is little information from alternative media in the Czech Republic. [...] “We didn’t have any information about such marches. Our population thinks that there is no Nazism and nationalism in Ukraine,” Blashko said. [Translated from Russian] (2023-09-05)
