Relatives of the Heroes of Heavenly Hundreds are asked to be included in the list for the exchange of prisoners of Portnov instead of ex-Berkut
Relatives of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes are asked not to include ex-Berkutovites on the list for the exchange of prisoners, but instead to give the former deputy head of the Presidential Administration, Yanukovych Andrey Portnov.
This was reported in GO Rodini Heavenly Hundreds.
Families of Heroes expressed their indignation at the inaction of law enforcement agencies and the lack of reaction to threats and intimidation of participants in the Revolution of Dignity by representatives of the Yanukovych regime.
“Such inactivity of the National Police and the GPU raises the question: have the leadership of these bodies really forgotten what Maidan was going for and against? Will they really endure the boasting of the odious Portnov, who, after the massacres of his minions by our relatives, fled the country with his tail caught, and now he is bold enough to give orders to law enforcement officers and foretell revenge? If our law enforcement officers know the word “honor”, these mockeries of the memory of our relatives should be put to an end. It is necessary to exclude from the list for the exchange of Golden Eagles, and in return to include Portnov in this list. We demand an immediate legal response to Portnov’s threats and anti-state activities. Instead of golden eagles, they can exchange Portnov for captive citizens of Ukraine held by the aggressor country, Russia, ”the statement said.
Recall, the Kiev Court of Appeal released from custody of three ex-Berkut , accused of killing 48 and injuring 80 people on Institutskaya Street on February 20, 2014.
Oleg Yanishevsky, Sergey Zinchenko and Pavel Abroskin were released from custody.
The court also canceled the house arrest of two other former Berkut members accused in this case – Sergey Tamtur and Alexander Marinchen. They were all released on a personal obligation.
The GPU reported that the killings on Euromaidan, which included former employees of the Golden Eagle, will be continued.
