MP from the Opposition Platform - For Life party Oleh Voloshyn commented on shooting of the bus of the Patriots - For Life organization activists near Kharkiv.
"This is a colossal tragedy. They constantly threaten the leaders, politicians. I have always told them that if they want to get a real civil war, they will get it. Today they have taken another very dangerous step towards civil war. Everyone needs to be aware of this," he noted.
The MP added that if the organizers are not arrested for the next few hours, or at least imprisoned without bail for the duration of the investigation, then what else could be done except reacting accordingly.
"For my part, I have already informed all the key Western embassies in Kyiv and directly wrote to my American colleagues about the situation. Here are videos and photographs of wounded people, machine gun shells, a shot on the bus. Put a question to the authorities that something should be done or this will be very bad for everyone. Naturally, we will raise this issue in the next few days. Next week the European Parliament begins to work. We will do this at the level of the European Parliament, so that the National Corps finally, as it long ago deserves, was recognized as a terrorist organization," Voloshyn added.
