The events that happened in Kyiv and Cherkasy on March 9 cannot be left without political opinion and measure of the law enforcement institutions. The press service of Petro Poroshenko Bloc ‘Solidarity’ reports this.
“It is just one more attempt to bring chaos into Ukraine. The aggressor and the people who seek revenge have been trying for five years to do everything possible for that, including launching the grenades at National Guard officers, provoking the clashes with police, blocking streets etc. It is exactly what representatives of the Russian propaganda want. The only aim is to overthrow the democratic and pro-European regime,” reads the message.
According to the Petro Poroshenko party, the Russian oligarchs and those who seek revenge are responsible for the attacks. “Since the beginning of the Russian aggression against our country we have been fighting for the right to be an independent country. That’s why no one will be able to buy or to break Ukraine from the inside. Everybody, who wants to provoke violence and bloodsheds on the streets to please their ambitions, has to face the law enforcement institutions first.”
The members of the party also called for punishing the participants of the attack on the police officers in Kyiv and on a peaceful demonstration of the citizens in Cherkasy and for “stopping provocations against our sovereignty.”
As we reported before, as a result of the clash of National Corps far-right organization representatives with law enforcement officers in Cherkasy, 15 officers were injured, including the head of the local National Police department Valeriy Lyuty.
Earlier on this day, several hundred participants of the National Corps and the National Guards movement gathered near the building of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine in Kyiv demanding to bring to justice Poroshenko's close associates, defendants of the journalistic investigation of the plundering at the Ukroboronprom state enterprise. The protesters tried to break through the cordon of law enforcement officers; as a result of a short skirmish tear gas was sprayed, but then the situation calmed down.
Citing an archive of documents and private messages from an anonymous leaker, journalists of Our Money (Nashi Groshi) described fraud by Igor Gladkovsky, deputy head of Ukraine’s National Defense and Security Council, and his 22-year-old son of Oleg Gladkovsky. They were supplying smuggled Russian components and components from the Ukrainian military units through straw companies at prices 2-4 times higher than market ones.
Ukrainian presidential candidate Yulia Tymoshenko has initiated impeachment proceedings against Poroshenko, as his own Leninska Kuznia company was involved as a straw company.
