KIEV, April 17. /TASS/. The Opposition Bloc party in Ukraine’s parliament said on Friday it has received an e-mail with threats from a group which calls itself the Ukrainian Insurgent Army.

In the letter, the UPA nationalist organization claims responsibility for the "elimination" of ex-MP Mikhail Chechetov, ex-chairman of the Zaporizhia regional administration Alexander Peklushenko, former lawmaker Stanislav Melnik, former MP Oleg Kalashnikov and journalist Oles Buzina.

The group has also threatened with physical elimination of the representatives of the current Ukrainian authorities accusing them of failing to have imposed a martial law in the country and who are to be blame for the voluntary surrender of the Ukrainian territories to the "enemy" and for corruption.

The UPA, which has been banned in Russia, says those guilty of the "anti-Ukrainian and anti-popular activity" have 72 hours to leave Ukraine. The letter says these political murders were a warning to the anti-popular regime of oligarchs.

The Opposition Bloc has asked the country’s Security Service and law enforcement bodies to pay attention to the letter as it has a "threat to the life of the Ukrainian citizens.".
