 “Any attempt to express
an alternative point of view is considered treason,” he told Kyiv
Post in an interview on Sept. 16.

Markov, 40, was elected to
parliament last October through a majority constituency in Odesa, and
struck an agreement to cooperate with the Party of Regions even
before the end of the election campaign. On Sept. 12, the High
Administrative Court of Ukraine ruled
that the Central Election
Commission has to cancel his mandate because of falsifications during
the elections and vote count.

Many consider this
decision controversial because the law only allows five days for
appealing election results. This case was the fourth since the last
election when members of parliament, known in Ukraine as deputies of
the Verkhovna Rada, lost their mandates though controversial court
decision.
