MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. The Ukraine Salvation Committee has compiled the Grabovsky list that comprises persons complicit in the murder of Ukrainian lawyer Yuri Grabovsky. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko comes first on the list.
"The Ukraine Salvation Committee has drawn up its Grabovsky list where we have included those who are responsible in one way or another for the brutal and demonstrative murder of the lawyer, the humiliation and tortures of political prisoners in the torture chambers of Ukraine’s Security Council and the Interior Ministry, in the secret prisons of punitive battalions," the committee said in a statement.
The Grabovsky list comprises 22 persons. Aside from Poroshenko, it includes Secretary of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council Alexander Turchinov, former Prosecutors-General Viktor Shokin and Vitaly Yareyoma, Verkhovna Rada Vice-Speaker Andrei Parubiy, Ukrainian Security Council Secretary Vasily Gritsak, Chief Military Prosecutor Anatoly Matios, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and other staffers of the Ukrainian Security Council, the Interior Ministry’s Prosecutor’s Office, as well as Head of the Lugansk military and civilian administration Georgy Tuka, founder of the Aidar volunteer battalion Sergei Melnichuk and commander of the Azov battalion Andrei Biletsky.
"All of them are complicit in creating the atmosphere of terror and violence, fear and intimidation in the country. The Ukraine Salvation Committee offers just several names to start this list and Ukrainians will write down the other names. Everyone will be heard. Let the persons complicit in this crime be named until there is a possibility to put an end to terror in Ukraine. We’ll be extending this list," the Ukraine Salvation Committee’s statement said.
Lawyer Grabovsky who defended the interests of Russian national Alexander Aleksandrov detained by the Ukrainian army disappeared in early March.
It is known that he was in Odessa on March 5 and returned to his Kiev office the following day. After that, no one saw him.
Grabovsky’s body with a gunshot wound was found in the Cherkasy Region in central Ukraine on March 25. Two suspects have been detained. The Ukrainian police consider "mercenary, domestic" motives among the versions for the causes of the lawyer’s murder. However, "a deliberate action" remains the basic version.
The Ukraine Salvation Committee was established on August 3, 2015.
"We know those who made a coup d’etat in Ukraine, who rejected a dialog with their people," Ukraine Salvation Committee Head and former Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said at the founding press conference in Moscow.
"The Salvation Committee now believes that accord can’t be restored without a change of the country’s political leadership. The Salvation Committee is, unfortunately, being established outside Ukraine but I’m confident that we will return. We’re addressing the Ukrainian people: we‘re ready to assume responsibility for restoring Ukraine’s development," Azarov said.
