Vitaliy Dudin adds :

This is the best thing that happened to me in the Lviv trolleybus. I had the honor of riding along with dozens of passengers and passengers, as well as outstanding figures from the Socialist Movement in France (Nouveau Parti Anticapitaliste) [NPA]

  • Catherine Samary (PhD in economics, known for critical research on the topics of globalization and social justice);
  • Olivier Besancenot (ex-candidate for president of France and post office worker).

I’m amazed that they came here to support our people’s resistance against Russian terrorists. In their country, they have to get into a controversy with the short-sighted French leftists who tolerate Putin’s aggression. It is very symbolic that on the same pole with Ukraine, such active opponents of progressive change, such as Catherine and Olivier.

There is a certain symbolism and that we have chosen such an ecological transport, capable of functioning and without fuel. A new world liberated from wars and primates of life will surely exist in harmony with the environment. Exactly to such a vector of social development we need to strive in the process of further reconstruction of Ukraine
