President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky shared his opinion on the recent arson of the house of Vitaliy Shabunin, co-founder of the Anti-Corruption Action Centre. The president wrote about it on his Telegram channel.
"The house of activist Vitaliy Shabunin's parents, which was cynically set on fire, is a clear sign that our society cannot come to its senses after numerous tragedies and social upheavals. It cannot abandon uncivilized forms of sorting things out. It cannot stop playing demonstrative violence," he wrote.
According to Zelensky, Ukraine must emerge from the era of conflicts.
"Obviously, every such case casts a shadow on the reputation of our state, on our new institutions of power and, especially, on our law enforcement agencies. Unfortunately, this is a really disturbing story. Because, regardless of views, position, public activity, everyone in our country has an absolute right to his/her own inviolability and the inviolability of their homes. This is an axiom for mature and civilized countries," the president said.
As we reported earlier, Shabunin's house was put on fire yesterday, on July 23.
At the time of the arson, Shabunin and his children were not at home, and his parents managed to escape.
