KIEV, February 16 (Itar-Tass) – Over ten supporters of the nationalist party Svoboda (Freedom) led by MP Igor Miroshnichenko destroyed the monument to Soviet state founder Vladimir Lenin in the town of Akhtyrka, Sumy Region, on Saturday, February 16.
The MP climbed over the monument and fixed a rope on top of it. The other end of the rope was tied to a truck that pulled the monument down. Police ignored numerous police warnings.
All the participants in the action were detained and taken to the city police station. None of them were local residents. A criminal case was opened on charges of hooliganism.
The Interior Ministry said that “some MPs use their parliamentary immunity” to show total disrespect for law and draw ordinary people into unlawful activities for which they will be brought to account.
