MOSCOW, April 17. /TASS/. Members of the public in Donbas, an industrial region of Ukraine’s south-east, have called on Germany, France and Russia to seek to end the political terror in Ukraine.
In their joint request to the countries’ leaders, more than 40 social and political movements said "everyone calling for peace and justice are subjected to bullying and victimization" in Ukraine.
"Today hundreds and thousands of people are jailed in Kiev, Odessa, Kharkiv, Zaporizhia and Dnipropetrovsk just for daring to call for the regions’ independence, fight against poverty, against reckless conformity to the US diktat and the insane glorification of Hitler’s allies," says the request posted on the website of the Donetsk news agency.
The activists note that those who criticize the Kiev regime are eliminated, citing as an example this week’s killings of Ukrainian journalists Oles Buzina and Sergey Sukhobok, and a former MP Oleg Kalashnikov.
"Mass terror has been in fact unleashed in Ukraine against the otherwise-minded Ukrainians, the fighters for the rights of Russians, Jews, Hungarians, Bulgarians, Tatars and the people of Gagauzia [in Moldova]," the statement says.
