The text of the sentence to Yuriy Krysin, accomplice of Vyacheslav Veremiy murder, has been published. Now we know that if your son, husband or brother is put down on his back, is beaten with beats on his head, and someone else kills him with a shot in the chest, it will be called hooliganism.

It has now become fashionable to blame the Criminal Code and the judicial system. But in this case, this manipulation will not work at all. Not even prosecutors, judges and lawyers are to blame. All their actions are just the expression of the criminal will of the influential friends of Krysin, who are ready to support him, to provide protection and to seek the "correct" decisions of the courts.

Excuse me for me cynicism, but can you even imagine that some district court would release the titushka-leader, organizer, involved in the beating and murder of relatives of the prosecutor, a large “official” from the National Police, or the governor, for example, of Mykolaiv region? No, seriously, no kidding or abstractions - does anyone really believe that it would be possible?!

Just try to read the quotation from the court decision. Pelevin and Bulgakov went out the window upon arrival! In short, at first Krysin handed them bats, then they together went to "stop people" and accidentally, purely "of hooligan (!!!) considerations", "without agreeing" killed a man. One dropped him to the ground with beats, and the second "prevented him from standing up" by shooting in the chest.

Even if the group leader admits that he has gathered people, gave them bits - it does not matter. Just pay 438 USD to the courtroom of court costs and easily go on celebrating the New Year.

Krysin’s sentence is a like a dirty spit on everything that has become “fashionable” to declare after Maidan - justice, dignity, and humanity. It needs to be reconsidered, and Krysin has to sit in jail, no matter who his friends are.

From the text of the court decision (read, this is really important!):

Yuriy Krysin told the court that he had a security agency, and he had a lot of acquaintances. On February 17, 2014, he called his friend and asked to find 200-300 people to protect public order in the government quarter, but he found only about 15 people.

February 18, 2014, at 22:00 they (together with Krysin) gathered near the monument to Bogdan Khmelnytsky on Sofia Square in Kyiv, where the accused received a wooden bite from an unidentified person for the using it against relatively peaceful protesters who would go from Mykhailivska Square in Kyiv to the side Lviv Square, Kyiv.

About 23:57 Skoda Octavia drove up and crosses the streets of Volodymyrska and Velyka Zhytomyrska, from which the correspondent of Vesti newspaper Vyacheslav Veremiy made a video on the phone. Wishing not to allow their illegal actions to be recorded, unidentified persons decided to stop the car and to cause injuries to persons in the car so that the latter could not record their actions.

At the same time, the accused Yuriy Krysin, along with other people, made numerous attacks with a wooden stick (bite) on Vyacheslav Veremiy’s body and legs. As a results of injuries struck by Yuriy Krysin Vyacheslav Veremiy fell to the roadway. Then he stood up and tried to escape from the attackers. Seeing this, one of the members of Krysin’s group, shot Vyacheslav Veremiy, and the latter has lost consciousness. Later Vyacheslav Veremiy was taken to the emergency medical service, where he died of a gunshot wound.

Yuriy Krysin has completely admitted his guilt in the criminal offense.

Vyacheslav Veremiy

As was reported before, the first and only trial so far over the fatal attack on journalist Veremiy during Euromaidan has ended in a four-year suspended sentence with a two-year probation period passed on Krysin for his undisputed part in the killing. Judge Oleh Linnyk from the Shevchenkivsk Court in Kyiv, ignored the prosecutor’s call for a six-year prison sentence, and found him guilty only of ‘hooliganism’, with his alleged repentance and two underage children given as mitigating circumstances. Everything about this prosecution, as well as others involving Krysin, has aroused concern and been the subject of several journalist investigations. The prosecution has already said that they will appeal against the sentence. It is believed that it was one of the other titushki, Dzhalal Aliev (also known as Dima Dagestanets, and now in hiding) who fired the fatal shot when Veremiy tried to flee. The 31-year-old Vesti journalist who was married with a small son died shortly afterwards in hospital.

Kharkiv Human Rights Protection Group reports that 44-year-old Krysin is originally from the Donetsk oblast and is believed to have been part of a criminal gang with links to Yury Ivanyushchenko, a former close associate of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych. Ivanyushchenko is suspected of playing a major role in providing the gangs of titushki or hired thugs used against Maidan activists.
