KIEV, April 6. /TASS/. Ukraine’s top officials are indulging in political gimmicks to divert public attention from their destructive actions sending their ratings all the way down, a Ukrainian expert said on Monday.
"A catastrophic collapse of (Prime Minister Arseniy) Yatsenyuk’s ratings from 22 to four percent and the falling ratings of other top officials makes him resort to political tricks, such as spiraling up anti-communist hysteria in a bid to divert public attentions from destructive actions of the authorities," Andrey Zolotarev, the head of the Third Sector Center, told a news conference.
The current media frenzy around extermination of communist ideology on the backdrop of ‘cannibal’ tariffs for utility services proves that the authorities are being guided by the if-we-cannot-give-bread-we-will-give-circuses principle, thus finishing off people not only materially but also morally.
In the meantime, Ukraine’s Security Service has been interrogating Ukrainian Communist leader Petro Simonenko, whose legal status — either that of a suspect or a witness — has not yet been determined, according to the Security Service’s spokesperson Elena Gitlyanskaya.
