KIEV, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. MP Oleh Tsariov, who is a candidate for presidency in the May 25 election, was beaten ruthlessly late night Monday after he walked out of the studios of ITCV channel.
A report on his website said he had been “subjected to an attack by an aggressive armed mob that had been blocking the channel’s building.”
“Officers of the state guard did their best to save him from the outraged militants,” TsarIov’s press service said quoting one of his assistants who had been by his side during the incident.
In the meantime, UNIAN news agency said the politician managed to get to an ambulance car but the mob did not let it move away from the scene.
After that the mobsters made an arrangement with the police that Tsariov would be delivered to Ukraine’s Security Service in a prisoner transport van but since the latter did not arrive upon demand, “TsarIov was taken away to an unknown destination in a whitish car.”
He had come to ICTV to take part in the Freedom Speaking live show.
As it turned out later, he had been taken to the building of the Prosecutor General’s Office where he spoke to reporters, telling them he would not renounce struggle in the presidential race under any circumstances, including the threats of physical reprisals.
His press service quoted him saying “peaceful dialogue between the authorities and all residents of the country, as well a search for compromise solutions and understanding offer the only way out of the political crisis and the only method to keeping up unity of the state.
