KIEV, January 20, 21:25 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Chief Prosecutor Viktor Pshonka said on Monday that the opposition and the public should immediately stop mass riots accompanied by violence, pogroms and arsons that were posing a threat to Ukraine’s national security.
“It is not just hooliganism. This is a crime against the state. I am calling on opposition leaders to recall their supporters from Grushevsky Street and explain to them that mass disturbances were impossible,” Pshonka emphasized.
According to the chief prosecutor, the organizers and participants in the mass riots are trying to negate the basic principles of a state by staging pogroms and arsons. Pshonka emphasized that the law and the Constitution formed the foundation of any democratic state and that the language of ultimatums, stones and Molotov cocktails was not the right way to deal with the law and the state.
“Separate politicians and public organizations keep provoking the population and law enforcers to violent standoff. What we see today is a direct consequence of two-month rhetoric of irresponsible politicians and their populist promises of impunity for committed crimes,” Ukraine’s chief prosecutor said.
