Statement

Solidarity is the vital condition that unites us in the struggles.

I thank my friends and comrades who stood in solidarity with me. I thank all progressive people for their compassion, which was not only sympathy for a person, but in a moment of struggle, against an inhuman force.

Solidarity and support, which showed that there are vital social forces that resist arbitrariness, violence and authoritarianism. And that gives new hope.

The ruling family has shown how ruthlessly they degrade the laws and the constitution, the jurisprudence. I leave it at that.

They are judged by the people who take to the streets. What happens out there is much more important than how it started.

In the face of the power of these struggles, I declare for my part that I am with you with my heart and mind, among you.
