Ukraine | State security and tortures: nothing changed in Ukraine

UN High comissioner for rights issued a new report on human rights violation in Ukraine. It is remarkable that nothing changed in state policy of Kiev regime. Its secret services continue arbitrary arrests and tortures. The report tells:

Ukraine | Ukrainian political police carried out new arrests

On February 23 arrests for political motives were resumed in Ukraine. On the day when opponents of Kiev regime celebrate anniversary of the Soviet army of creation, the Ukrainian intelligence agencies arrested three inhabitants of Odessa: Alexander Kushnaryov, Anatoly Slobodyanik and Andrey Zadorozhniy. A. Kushnaryov is a deputy of Limansky village council from the Oppositional block and the father of Gennady Kushnaryov who was killed on May 2, 2014, defending in the Trade Unions Building from attack of the Ukrainian fascists. A. Slobodyanik heads the union of veterans of law enforcement agencies of Odessa region. A. Zadorozhniy is a worker in typography.

Ukraine | State security as terrorist organization

State security service regional office in Odessa turned to be a center of terrorism. This conclusion of state security activity in Ukraine is based on data published by opposition media. As it known two years ago Ukrainian fascists organized massacre in Odessa. Since that time Odessans who lost the relatives carry out commemorative actions on the square Kulikovo Field near the place of mass death of people. Also traditionally unknown people call to police at the days of commemoration and report that the area, where activists gather, is mined. The police surround the area and do not allow holding a meeting near the Trade Unions Building where Odessa residents were killed. However every time the message on a mining of the area proves to be false. The police do not find any bombs. Under the Ukrainian laws the anonymous call by phone with the statement about a mining is considered a crime. Despite it the police still brought nobody charges.
Recently oppositional website “Timer” received an explanation of this riddle from the sources in the Odessa police. As the police officer who wished to remain anonymous reported, the police established long ago from where calls about a mining of the city square arrive. The staff of department of public safety of regional management of police established that calls about a mining of Kulikovo Field arrive from the telephone numbers registered in the building of State security regional office namely from department of protection of national statehood. Under the Ukrainian laws obviously untrue report on preparation of explosion is punished by restriction of freedom for a period of up to three years. However intelligence agencies in this country stand above the law.

Ukraine | Miroslava Berdnik Case: SBU’s Devious Methods to Silence the Truth in Ukraine

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard

Where does the taxpayers’ money go or how I became involved in another criminal case
You just will not be surprised, but I became involved in another criminal case!

However, the case that was opened by the SBU, but the Prosecutor General’s office.
The case of the pogrom during the exhibition “Volyn massacre” in the Ukrainian House, which took place more than 6 years ago on April 8th, 2010!
Do you remember the night’s crumpled message on paper that was transferred via the neighbour from the Colonel of Police? So, it turns out that the Colonel was real. It seems that the Prosecutor General’s office, which allegedly was informed by unknown witnesses said that I was a participant of the event, requested this Colonel to interrogate me as a participant. For now, at least as a witness.
And despite the fact that I immediately explained to him that I will answer his questions only in the presence of his lawyer, especially because I am the same witness the 40 million Ukrainians who witnessed this pogrom during the exhibition “Volyn massacre” on TV, he tried to ask a few questions.
It’s as a matter of fact that I have already answered during a pretrial investigation the investigator for particularly important cases of the Main Investigation Department of the GPU on the question of whether I’m participant of this exhibition (it is the case according to which the ex-Deputy Vadim Kolesnichenko declared as wanted). As proof of my innocence as a non-participant and non-witness, I referred to my material in the blog “Varjag-2007” from April 8th 2010 the “Volyn massacre” photo exhibition, in which it was particularly indicated that “I came after the moment nationalists, who attempted to disrupt an exhibition, were dragged out of the hall by their legs, so the rumours about the disruption of the exhibition are greatly exaggerated, the organizers of the exhibition told me that only a few books were torn.”
Despite my refusal to answer his questions without a lawyer, the Colonel over the phone asked me a question – if I was the author of such a post, to which I replied that it violates my rights to continue after my request to ask questions only in the presence of a lawyer.
My lawyer Elena Lukash called him and clarified all the relevant issues. But…
Now I tried to find in the archive of my blog “Varyag-2007” material that justifies me as a non-party and a non-witness to the pogrom of the exhibition “Volyn massacre”… and I didn’t find it! Only SBU officers could have removed it, who continue to monitor my accounts, despite my complaint to the Chairman of the SBU that the SBU illegally without a court order withdrew all my passwords, logins, and emails and obtained control over all my accounts, and continue to control it. It is in this way that taxpayers’ money is now used.
But initiators made one mistake: it is VERY difficult to destroy material on the Internet. Here is a repost of my destroyed material, the photo report of the “Volyn Massacre” exhibition, proving that I am neither a participant nor a witness.
I visited the exhibition “Volyn massacre: Polish and Jewish victims of OUN-UPA” (the name is not misleading – in the catalogue of the documental photo exhibition it says of the Ukrainian, Russian, and Czechoslovak victims of the UPA).
I came after the moment nationalists, who attempted to disrupt an exhibition, were dragged out of the hall by their legs, so the rumours about the disruption of the exhibition are greatly exaggerated, the organizers of the exhibition told me that only a few books were torn
However, this advertising Billboard dedicated to the exhibition no longer exists:

Ukraine: New Research Corroborates Secret Detentions
