Where is the punishment for the sadists?



Ihor Lutsenko

This is the first question for the government. The only other comparable issue is the threat to territorial integrity. Questions of staffing should be of a distant secondary nature.

As of now, there are still 290 members of the Berkut riot police who remain free, despite having beaten [peaceful protesters] on November 20, and thousands of their colleagues who later shot, tortured and killed.

Also free are the judges, who knowingly sought to conceal the repression through their unlawful decisions.
Issuing a warrant for their arrest should take only minutes. The evidence, both documentary and audiovisual (in the form of photos and videos) is more than sufficient, from a procedural point of view, to put them all behind bars. At the same time, Member of Parliament Andrey Senchenko announced at a press conference in Simferopol that “members of the Crimean Berkut and internal forces will not be subject to sanctions.”

As though only Yanukovych and Zakharchenko are to blame.

If this government covers up the atrocities of these sadists just like the one before it, then it will be worthy of the same fate.

And I would recommend preparing for this.
