"Today there are speculations that Klitschko has some problems and cannot be allowed to run for the presidential post. These rumors are spread deliberately in order to impose such public opinion. I want to emphasize that there are no grounds to ban Vitali Klitschko to run for presidency", Klitschko said.
The deputy head of UDAR Vitaliy Kovalchuk said that UDAR was not surprised by the decision of the court, as the Ukrainian judiciary system is notorious for its "objectivity". He stressed that this decision opens the possibility for UDAR to file the appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.
"Vitali Klitschko is a citizen of Ukraine. He ran for the post of a deputy for many times, and the Central Electoral Commission had no objections. The decision in question is nothing more than a provocation and manipulation of the authorities. However, we emphasize that we will not leave unpunished the actions of the heads of the Parliament, who allowed to pass the amendments not only to the Tax Code, but also to other laws with in violations. Therefore, the decision of the Supreme Administrative Court paves the way to challenge the government's actions in the European Court of Human Rights", Vitaliy Kovalchuk said in comments to journalists.
