KIEV, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Bandit raids in regional state authorities resulted directly from a state coup rolling in Ukraine, the ruling Party of Regions said in a statement on Monday.
“Attempts of opposition leaders [Arseny] Yatsenyuk, [Vitaly] Klitschko and [Oleg] Tyagnibok refusing to have anything in common with action taken by their supporters, with forcible raids in local state authorities are awkward intentions to evade political, moral and criminal responsibility for their crimes. All the country has been listening to hysterical appeals of this irresponsible trio to all-Ukraine mobilization, appeals to stand to the bitter end, appeals to topple incumbent authorities and appeals to take power for three months,” the press service of the Party of Regions said.
Deputies of the ruling party noted that the so-called ‘people’s Rada’, a structure that the opposition proclaimed on January 22, gives direct orders to the regions with appeals to seize power by self-proclaimed local legislatures and pass all powers to them.
“Political terrorists, extremists of all stripes, capturing the buildings housing state authorities, first decided to ban activity and symbols of the Communist Party of Ukraine and the Party of Regions in their regions,” the party said in the statement. “On the basis of these anti-constitutional decisions their neo-Nazi nature was fully exposed, as the latter concealed this deeply behind democratic rhetoric and observance of human rights. This has already happened in Germany in 1933,” the statement reads.
Lawmakers warned that “fascist elements in the streets of Ukrainian cities are turning the country in a scene of combat actions.”
“Today existence of independent Ukraine is under threat,” the statement runs. “Trying to stage a state coup, which will split the country, they do not think about lives and fates of millions of civilians, who do not participate in this bacchanalia. They are not concerned over pain and sufferings of Ukrainian families,” the party statement said.
