The MP from "Servants of the people" Maksym Buzhansky explained why he did not honor the memory of the dead participants of the Revolution of dignity with a minute of silence in the Verkhovna Rada, as the Radio Liberty reports.
"I saw several messages, they are completely false, I will explain why. Yesterday's video is superimposed on yesterday’s words of Stefanchuk (First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada, - Ed.). Yesterday, the vice speaker of the parliament spoke and offered to honor all the dead on Maidan. I stood up together with everyone, of course. I grieve for all those who died. Today, the vice speaker offered to honor the memory of one part of the victims. I am categorically against this approach," - Buzhansky said.
As we reported, While the MPs in the Verkhovna Rada rose to honor a minute of silence in memory of those killed on the Maidan during the Revolution of Dignity, the "Servant of the People" Maksym Buzhansky refused to get up
On February 18, 2014, after the activists refused to fulfill the ultimatum of the security forces to stop the resistance, one of the most bloody assaults on the Maidan began, which lasted until February 20 and ended with the shooting of "Heavenly Hundred."
