KIEV, February 01, 18:38 /ITAR-TASS/. The opposition is trying to seize power in Ukraine and the key opposition party “Batvitshchina” is involved in these attempts, parliament deputy Alexander Golub of the Communist Party told Itar-Tass.
The Communist Party deputy commented a statement by deputy chief of the Main Investigation Directorate of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry Vitaly Sakal saying the Batkivshchina party could be involved in seizing state power in Ukraine.
“Now a check is being conducted in compliance with Article 109 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (forcible overthrow of state regime or constitutional system),” Sakal told a news conference on Friday, January 31.
Golub noted that he had no evidence of the Interior Ministry. At the same time, he said the grounds for the statement caused no doubts.
“The events, which happen in Ukraine, can’t be named otherwise. We watch an attempt to seize power. Moreover, it is obvious that the actions by right-wing radicals and different fascist-like groups are being governed from the united political centre. Of course, they are provided funding,” the parliament deputy said.
“It is evident that one of the major parties of the opposition ‘Batkivshchina’ did not take aside financial support for Maidan and its militants and from the events, which are currently happening in Kiev and in the country’s regions,” he said, adding “The Interior Ministry’s data proved what most reasonable people know and realise in Ukraine.”
Sakal told a news conference that police had proof that the Batkivshchina party was preparing to provoke the clashes between protesters and law enforcers in downtown Kiev.
