“They [responsible for the order to shoot on the 18th & 19th – editorial] don’t have to die, it would be a far too merciful punishment. Those bastards should bury their sons and daughters every single day” – these were the words said by a mother of one of the snipers’ victims Olexander Plehanov. [see video below]
I want leaders of the Opposition and MP from the Party of Regions to explain to that woman that the person responsible for death of her son will remain in power for at least a year. He will remain free to enjoy the luxury of his presidential residence.
After the brutal beatings of the students on November, 30 the Opposition was demanding for President to resign.
Now the count is more than 100(!) dead. And we sign the agreement.
I hope you will choke on your agreement!
Tyrant is loosing army support.
Tyrant has lost most of his jurisdictions.
Tyrant is loosing supporters even inside his own party.
Then why the heck are we supposed to continue to tolerate him?
What is it that we have to wait for? Why would we want to tolerate a murderer as our President?
Opposition can sign whatever agreement they want. People will not accept it.
Maybe I should go and kill 100 people, and then we will all sit at the round table. And then I will just try my luck during the next elections. You may now choose between me – the murderer – and any other candidate.
Does this make any sense to anyone?!
Killed were not simply someone’s sons or relatives. Killed were our brothers and sisters. How can we possibly betray what they fought for and died for?
I am leaving here a reportage made by Anna Miroshnychenko; the video deals with deaths during the last few days and the words of a mother in grief over her dead son – Olexander Plehanov.
Watch it every day, watch it to remember and not to forgive.
