Iryna Gerashchenko, the First Vice-Spokesperson of Verkhovna Rada, is preparing a request to the National Police concerning detaining of two young people in Rivne, who came to the rally for the impeachment of President Volodymyr Zelensky. Gerashchenko wrote this on Facebook.
“I express my indignation at the detention of two juveniles in Rivne. I am preparing a request to the National Police," Herashchenko said.
At the same time, she reminded that during previous five years, “almost everyday people conducted demonstrations, hunger strikes, set up tents, broke toilets, hang panties, threw toys near the Bankova Street, the Verkhovna Rada, the Cabinet of Ministers, and the regional administration. And sometimes it was quite aggressive and not quiet actions, but still, nobody was detained.”
“The protesters behaved differently, but it was a democracy," Gerashchenko said.
It should be noted that the police made administrative protocols for an improvised rally on the impeachment of President Volodymyr Zelensky against a 16-year-old girl and her boyfriend in Rive in the evening on May 25.
The reason for this was they did not file the relevant application in advance, which violated the order and organization of meetings, rallies, street marches, and demonstrations.
