The people’s Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andriy Biletsky threatened Petro Poroshenko assault of the regional councils, if there is no accepted mass Amnesty to veterans of the so-called ATO. The leader of the “National body” (banned in Russia) warned that soon his followers will go to the regional MPs to support their Manifesto.
The first “hit” list of nationalists turned out to be lions. On may 30, about 100 radicals of the “Falcon” and “National corpus” broke right in the parliamentary session demanding to consider their Manifesto to the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. The document consists of 3 main points: an Amnesty for Ukrainian soldiers fighting in the East of the country, nationalization of the Russian capital and the continuation of the land moratorium. All the action was accompanied by nationalist slogans, ing of Parliament smoke bombs and riots in the parliamentary dining room. As the leader was the chief of staff of the party “national body” Svyatoslav PPE.
“We appealed to the regional Council with the request to support our demands. We were promised that the issue will be put to the vote before 13.00. In the hour of the day this did not happen, so we went inside to explain that this is done in the national interest”, — reported PPE.
The demands of the radicals were never made, and then they tried to disperse the force. During the clashes 11 people were injured — nine law enforcement officers and two civilians diagnosed with injuries of mild to moderate severity. Among nationalists for medical help did not apply. At the moment the issue of institution of criminal proceedings under article “hooliganism”.
The evening of the same day in an interview to Ukrainian media, the leader of the “National body” Andrey Biletsky said that similar events will be held in other regions of the country. The MP promised that after he will have two dozen applications from regional parliaments, that his followers will go straight to the Poroshenko administration.
By the way, the radicals tried to bring his idea to the head of state. On 21 may, the nationalists of the “C14”, “Freedom”, the aforementioned “Nazarus” and “Right Sector” (an organization banned in Russia) organized a campaign “Poroshenko sign the Amnesty”. The convoy of 80 vehicles headed to the village of Kozin, where is this country house the President of Ukraine. However, the Petro Poroshenko was on a working visit to Germany.
Denis Denisov, a Russian analyst:
“A little sparkle to the inside of the country began a hard conflict with weapons. The incident in Lviv the administration is the first sign that should make you think of the authorities and Petro Poroshenko. As you know, a number of so-called volunteer battalion fighting in Donbass, now reports to the head of the interior Ministry Arsen Avakov. In addition, currently in Ukraine there is a split of the political elites in several camps, and between the key figures of the Ukrainian authorities began a confrontation. We can expect that such threats and recommendations will be put to the radicals. They will continue to break into other regional councils and authorities, arranging there is unrest. However, this trend is logical, as Petro Poroshenko several times showed his weakness to such shares. The best example is the blockade, which was approved by the authorities with violations of the laws and Constitution of Ukraine.”
Konstantin Bondarenko, head of the Fund “Ukrainian politics”:
“It’s childish, which it is impossible to comment on positively from a political point of view. This is one of the manifestations of the chaos that has engulfed Ukraine. If you look at the pictures, you can see that most of the participants had not even reached the age of majority. They are not a serious political force, but Ukraine will be in a fever some time from these groups that try to promote their ideas and practices. These actions, they just want to show that they have fists, and they can impose their point of view, disregarding the laws. Now we are witnessing a test of state and government on the strength.”
