An MP from the Opposition Platform - For Life Party Vadim Rabinovich commented on the attack of nationalists on the parliamentarian from his faction Tatyana Plachkova and the film crew of ZIK TV channel in Odesa. He said this in a comment for NewsOne TV channel.
“They are not nationalists, but gangster groups because their actions cannot be called anything else. They attack MPs from of Opposition Platform - For Life in the center of the great Hero City of Odesa on the Independence Day of Ukraine. By the way, Hihanov is in the hospital, I don’t want to say anything else. And this is all in full connivance of the authorities, both central and local,” Rabinovich said.
He stressed that the central authorities do not take any measures neither when they throw grenades, shell channels from a grenade launcher, nor when nationalists try to intimidate representatives of opposition parties in every city.
“As for Odesa, I looked at the ratings, and there, in many cities, business executives are in the lead for mayor. Though they are thieves, they are business executives. After all, Tatyana Plachkova told on air of the channel the day before that Trukhanov brought 75 nationalists to the city for provocations,” the MP said.
Rabinovich promised to prosecute those attacking the MPs from the Opposition Platform - For Life.
“They think that they will forever cover up their gangster antics with political slogans. I think their time is coming to an end, and we must understand that the forces that have 1-2% support in society are trying to intimidate the country,” the MP added.
