First of all, I would like to express condolences to the
family of Ihor Debrin, who
was killed by mobs, I emphasize – by mobs – in clashes near the Verkhovna Rada
All the wounded will receive both moneyed and medical assistance:
all our soldiers, all law enforcement officers, the National Guard officers and
persons who have suffered as a result of a crime committed by certain political
These political forces haven’t come to defend the
Constitution, but to rape the Constitution and Ukraine. And, actually, they are
worse than Russian gangsters and terrorists in the East. Those don't hide that
they are at war with Ukraine. However, these hiding behind the slogans of
patriotism and love for Ukraine are destroying Ukrainian statehood.
The recent crime committed under the flags of different
political forces, including under the flags of the Freedom political party must
be investigated and punished.
As a citizen of Ukraine, I demand, under Article 348 of the
Criminal Code of Ukraine, a life sentence for the person who threw the grenade,
resulting in the death of an enlisted member of the National Guard of Ukraine.
Also I appeal to all political forces, I emphasize, to each
of them and, in particular, to the political forces in the coalition, with a
demand to publicly condemn this crime, those politicians and the political
forces who have caused the destabilization of the country, an insult to the
Ukrainian Constitution, the murder of a young man and the injury of dozens of
The cynicism of this crime is also in the fact that when the
Russian Federation and its thugs are trying to destroy the Ukrainian state and
they fail to do that at the front in the East, the so-called pro-Ukrainian
political forces are trying to open another front inside the country.
We are united inside our democratic coalition,
we are united with the President, the Government and all responsible citizens
of the country in our efforts to prevent the victory at both first and second fronts.
The only victory proves possible at our front – preserving Ukrainian statehood,
fighting against Russian terrorism and introducing changes in the country.
The organizers, instigators and perpetrators of this crime
shall be held answerable.
Now we are to have a meeting with the President of Ukraine
and, I believe, there must be established a joint investigative team of the
Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Security Service of Ukraine, the Prosecutor
General of Ukraine, which should bring to justice everyone responsible for this
crime and to do everything to prevent such a situation in the future: when a
person thinking about how to undermine the foundations of national statehood
and reputation of Ukraine in the world would be aware he would be punished.
