The bus was blocked and the bus was shelled from automatic arms. Two people received gunshot wounds, they are in serious condition. After shelling from automatic weapons the members of Patriots - For Life organization, the attackers were shooting from traumatic weapons, as a result of which two more people were injured. During the attack, one member of the organization was kidnapped. This was reported by the press service of the Opposition Platform – For Life.
"This crime of the National Corps and Azov is a consequence of the impunity of the far-right radicals acting under the direct patronage and incitement of the authorities, including President Zelensky, who openly declares his support for their position," the statement says.
Opposition Platform – For Life puts full responsibility for the abductions, blood, injuries and possible death of law-abiding Ukrainian citizens on President Zelensky, who is much more concerned about the fire in Shabunin's house than the armed attacks on Ukrainians on the highway or attacks on journalists.
We demand to immediately open criminal proceedings under the article for terrorism, investigation and prosecution of terrorists who are turning Ukraine into a field of hostilities. We demand that everything be done to free the abducted person and ensure the safety of Ukrainian citizens.
We demand from all victims of criminal actions of the criminal associations of National Corps and Azov to ban the activities of these organizations as terrorist organizations on the territory of Ukraine.
"Opposition Platform – For Life states that this is not the first attack on representatives of our party. But such attacks only convince us that our position on protecting the legality of peace in Ukraine is the only reasonable one, and we will not retreat and will not refuse from our values," the party stressed.
