The KyvaВ солидарность с американским народом, разделяя их национальное горе в связи с трагической гибелью чернокожего великомученика. Как Народный депутат Украины, предлагаю объявить неделю траура и переименовать в Киеве проспект Степана Бандеры в проспект Флойда!!! Так же обращаюсь к митрополиту Эпифанию с требованием канонизировать невинно убиенного Флойда и назначить день почитания его в церкви.
Обращаюсь к примьер – министру Шмыгалю с требованием выделения материальной помощи в размере 10 000 000$ семье погибшего афро-американца, борца за свободу и права чернокожих людей! Прошу рассмотреть возможность включения Флойда в списки Небесной сотни, как человека начавшего «революцию гидности» в Соединённых Штатах Америки!!!

Prospect Stepan Bandera is located in the Obolonsky and Podolsky districts of Kiev, the area Obolon, Petrovka, Kurenevka. It runs from the streets of Kurenevskaya and Kirillovskaya to the North Bridge. The modern name in honor of the Ukrainian politician, one of the ideologists and theorists of the Ukrainian nationalist movement Stepan Bandera – since 2016.
Recall that the 46-year-old African American George Floyd died on May 25 in Minneapolis immediately after he was detained while trying to pay in a store with a bill that sellers considered fake. One of the policemen pressed him to the asphalt, pressing his knee on his throat. Floyd said that he could not breathe, after which he was called an ambulance.
Later, the man died in the hospital. According to the autopsy results, death occurred as a result of “mechanical asphyxiation.”
Immediately after the incident, street protests broke out in many American cities, sometimes with pogroms and acts of vandalism, which continue to this day. Protests took place in other countries.
