Oleh Bereziuk: “We are addressing the President of Ukraine: We must immediately release the volunteers”

“We must immediately release those who in 2014 stopped the enemy of Ukraine waiting for no orders of the President or the Defence Ministry,” said Oleh Bereziuk, chairman of the Samopomich Union faction at the meeting of the parliament’s coordination board.

“Today, hundreds of these guys are imprisoned! Today they came out against corruption, which is constantly growing in the state. Yet the aggression and mockery are directed at those who have defended and will defend the state.

Catching people in the middle of streets, having their relatives discover the next day that these people are imprisoned – all this indicates a return to the police which humiliates people without charge or trial. This is the tyranny of the eastern despotism, which we have already experienced,” the chairman of the faction says.
