The value of Taras Stetskiv is that he never fears anyone, never sells himself and is never mum. If need be, he can utter harsh words of truth to our democratic leaders because the interests of Ukraine override with him, Yury Lutsenko writes in his letter from prison.“In 2007, when Yanukovych joined Moroz in their Judas union to stage an anti-constitutional coup in Verkhovna Rada, Taras Stetskiv was the only lawmaker who launched with me the People’s Self-Defence movement and demanded the dissolution of the legislature,” Lutsenko writes.
“Then, I had talks with all the democrats, Hrytsenko, Kyrylenko, Klitschko, Katerynchuk, and Yatseniuk. They all supported the idea, telling to us to start and assuring of their support. Only the firebrand Taras Stetskiv stood shoulder-to-shoulder with me and after 277 rallies we awakened Ukraine and won re-runs together with Yulia Tymoshenko in 2007.
Taras Stetskiv was not included on the United Opposition party list. He is running as independent in Lviv.
