Member of European Parliament Clare Daly sharply condemned the recent attacks by right-wing radicals in Ukraine.

"EU governments helped foster extreme nationalism in Ukraine to service a geopolitical agenda, and now neo-Nazis with government ties are beating up opponents and menacing civil society," she noted.

Daly stressed that Nazism in any country is a threat to everyone. "Europe must stop feeding its growth, in Ukraine and elsewhere," the Office of Clare Daly added.

Earlier, on July 12, the Ukrainian blogger and leader of the Party of Shariy, Anatoly Shariy, claimed that the right-wing radical organization National Corps attacked the house of the head of his political party headquarters in Kharkiv. And a member of Party of Shariy was beaten in Kharkiv at night on June 25. Shariy himself suspects members of the National Corps in this attack.

It is noteworthy that on July 3 a terrorist attack on the office of Poltava city organization of the Opposition Platform - For Life Party was carried out. An unknown person threw a grenade in the office’s open window. In response, the Opposition Platform - For Life demanded that the president stop the unfounded accusations and political persecution of the party and its leaders.

"Zelensky has no complaints against those who throw grenades at the office of our party, who beat those displeased with bats, he is not interested in who finances these gangs in Ukraine. He is interested in our political power! Opposition Platform - For Life requires Volodymyr Zelensky to stop political pressure on the party and stop attempts to discredit the Chairman of the Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life Viktor Medvedchuk. These attempts are futile, and political persecution is illegal," the party stated.
