Tamila Ulyanova, an active fighter to purge authorities in Dnipropetrovsk has disappeared. Her family said she had been called by unknown persons who introduced themselves as investigators, Sobolev said.
The law on purge of power, or lustration, was passed by the Ukrainian parliament on September 16 and came into force a month ago. Under the law, subject to lustration are all state officials and members of local governments who were in office during the period from February 25, 2010 to February 22, 2014 (under the rule of president Viktor Yanukovich) and officials and law-enforcement personnel who have done “harm to life, health or property of ‘EU-Maidan’ protest participants (activists who gathered at Kiev’s central square Maidan for rallies in support of EU integration). The law is also applied to former Soviet Union Communist Party and Communist Youth League members and former officials and security service officers involved in political persecution against Ukrainian nationalist activists during WWII and post-war time.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said earlier that one million officials of various levels, including all cabinet members, were subject to lustration.
