Political activity of the police

Speaker of opposition Ukrainian political party “Svoboda” (in English – “Freedom”) said today that Ukrainian police prevents trip of members of the party from Lviv to Kyiv to the grand meeting to mark the twentieth anniversary of the party.

Such using of the state police in political process in Ukraine was usual for former President Kuchma, and now it becomes usual for current President Yanukovych. Ukrainian government doesn’t understand that political questions must be given answers only during elections. They know the only way to get and keep power in the country – using of police and army to quell any civil activity in the country.
