Far-right activist Serhiy Sternenko has breached the law right after he was released. This time Odesa ex-leader of Right Sector declared a manhunt for journalists of 112 Ukraine, ZiK and NewsOne TV channels as Vesti reported.
Particularly, the far-right activist demands from the employers not to hire the mentioned journalists and he intends to create a database with all employees of mass media who cooperated with mentioned TV channels. “Some propagandists will conceal the fact of their work at mentioned TV channels. But they deliberately worked for aggressor so we should not forget about them. There is an idea to create a register of everyone who helped to hold an information war against us and spread this information among wide audience to make the searching for new work more difficult for propagandists,” Sternenko offered.
Correspondingly, the far-right activist is gathering a group of volunteers who will collect information. He assures that there is nothing illegal’; however, in fact, the creation and spread of such kind of a database without the agreement of people in it is a direct violation of the Constitution of Ukraine.
In 2018, Sternenko was attacked three times. The criminal proceedings were opened with him as the injured party, despite the fact that he killed one of the supposed attackers. However, the Security Service of Ukraine opened the criminal case due to the deadly wound of Ivan Kuznetsov committed by the far-right activist. Sternenko was served charges of murder and carrying cold arms without permission.
On August 13, 2020, Sternenko received indictment and in September, the first preparatory meeting in the case took place and the court sentenced the far-right activist to night house arrest. However, at the beginning of 2021, the court released Sternenko on bail to MP Roman Lozynsky.
