KIEV, December 06, 23:24 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said Friday that members of his family were getting threats of from oppositionist activists taking part in the action of protest on Independence Square in Kiev, also known as the Maidan.
“I just don’t know what ‘European values’ those opponents on the Maidan speak about while they issue instructions to others to knock on the doors of private apartments of judges, prosecutors, law enforcement officials and make out threats to their children and other family members,” Azarov wrote in Facebook.
“This isn’t merely an offense, this trespasses all the imaginable boundaries,” he wrote. “By the way, the members of my family are getting threats, too.”
He also called attention to the highly one-sided coverage of events in the Ukrainian media.
“The information space has been careened absolutely abysmally in what concerns the coverage of the current events,” Azarov said. “Only one viewpoint dominates everywhere and that’s a real distortion of reality, which stands a long way off from democracy.”
“No doubt, these things don’t have anything to do with European values,” he said.
Azarov noted the strange impression one was getting from the claims about European values on the part of the people blocking the government buildings, breaking out the doors, smashing windows, and inflicting skull wounds on policemen with metallic chains.
“We’ll clear out the wrongdoings of everyone who breaks law - the ones who hold state offices and the standing in an opposition to them likewise,” he wrote.
