“NGO Automaidan does not participate in today's protest action near the Presidential Administration. We understand their demands, and we support some of them, but there are up-to-no-good persons posing themselves as Automaidan members. We do not trust them due to their previous participation in paid-for actions. That’s why these people had been excluded from our organization”, reads the message at Facebook.
Serhiy Koba was expelled from Automaidan in 2014 for participation in a paid-for action, supporting a candidate for membership in the Ukrainian parliament. However, the activist found the namesake organization, which took part in the protest action in Kyiv on April 8.
