Sad trend

According to MP Mustafa Nayem in Odessa the summer of 2017 “in the hospital bed with a broken head, stab or gunshot wounds were fourteen members of public organizations and members of the media”.

“They are all from different organizations, political forces and the media. Common two things: they systematically and many years of talking about corruption and violations of city government headed by Gennady Trukhanov and, second, they all hold Pro-Ukrainian views. No such statistics in any other city in the country. About these facts and figures know everything and are everywhere: in the SBU, the GPU, the interior Ministry and the national police. But even in all these offices know that soon the election, and local authorities in Odessa have a “green light” to any disturbances in exchange for votes in the presidential election personally from the offices in the administration of the President. The situation has reached the point of absurdity – the seizure of power in the city and the local Pro-Russian illegal security structures directly said the OSCE! And this in a country that requires the whole world of aid in the war against separatism,” says Nye.
