Elder Valentine has performed in Moscow at a press conference on the next phase of the International literary and media competition named after her late son Oles, who was killed in Kiev. The event became known, the nominees of the award are journalists Igor Guzhva, Graham Phillips, political science Mikhail Pogrebinsky, Jeff Monson and other opponents of the ruling Ukrainian elite. In addition, the Valentina Pavlovna was nominated for the title of “heroine Mother”.However, the main event press conference was the story of the mother of Elder on the results of the investigation into the murder of Olesya.
“It’s very important to have as much material as possible was dedicated to my son and his murder. The first six months I was so confident in disclosing such high-profile murders that do not even take lawyers. But then the deal changed by the investigator, and I began to doubt that anyone does this. The final disappointment came when media reported the transfer of the case to Odessa, which is irrelevant to the murder had been. Only then I decided to hire lawyers. They began to put pressure on the Prosecutor and now the pretrial investigation is completed and the case is ready for transfer to court. But nobody knows when it’ll finally happen”
Thus, according to her, Lutsenko, the Prosecutor General has already introduced misled the public, saying that the case was submitted to the court. Even the suspects are still at large, said the Elder. “I’m really a believer. So I really want to be punished that is the real killer. Also, I’m interested why they decided to kill my son, who ordered it? After all the suspects personally told me that didn’t read any of his articles. Yet I was constantly tormented by what I as a mother failed to protect him… Better would have killed me. I don’t understand how can you kill someone for a different opinion. We are in talks with representatives of UN, OSCE…
If I suspect the court’s decision is some kind of injustice, we seek the truth in the international structures, will reach the ECHR. Until the perpetrators are not punished, I will not stop”
She also stressed that only once looked for support from the Ukrainian authorities. Two weeks after the appointment of Lutsenko on a post of the public Prosecutor, she joined him: “I was the first in the list to his audience, but he did not accept me, God will judge him. More I was never contacted and did not seek help from the authorities”.
