MOSCOW, April 16 /TASS/. The Kiev authorities have launched a "witch hunt" on those who tell the truth. Many more people who are fighting for justice in Ukraine are going to fall victim to the witch hunters, Alexander Zakharchenko, the head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, said on Thursday in connection with the murder of Ukrainian journalist Oles Buzina.
"The Kiev authorities continue killing those who are telling the truth about the events in the DPR," the Donetsk news agency quoted Zakharchenko as saying.
Zakharchenko said the Ukrainian authorities stand behind Buzina’s murder.
"Oles Buzina was not a DPR supporter but he told the truth about what’s going on in Ukraine which is a civil feat in today’s Kiev," Zakharchenko said.
"Any point of view which is falling out of line with official Kiev is like a knife in the heart of the junta. They will not stop at Oles Buzina’s death and will continue exterminating dissentient people," the DPR head said.
Oles Buzina was a well-known Ukrainian journalist, writer and TV anchorman. He is the author of two books, including "Vampire Taras Shevchenko" and "The Union of Plough and Trident. How Ukraine was Invented?" Buzina was the editor-in-chief of the Segodnya newspaper who had to quit his post because of censorship in March this year.
