Maidan sontik Volodymyr Parasiuk says that all conscious people left Maidan for the National Guard or volunteer battalions
Volodymyr Parasiuk believes that it’s high time to clean up the mess in the centre of Kyiv, but government should solve this issue exclusively by peaceful means.
This was said by Maidan sotnik in his commentary concerning today’s events at Maidan in the centre of Kyiv. Utility services tried to dismiss the central streets of the city from barricades and tents but met strong resistance from the so called ‘Maidan residents’. The last ones burned tires to prevent clearing up of their tents. There was conflict in course of which several security officers were wounded.
‘I don’t know the reason why these people stay in Maidan. If they think they control authorities they are mistaken. This is not the control of authorities’, – says Parasiuk. – ‘I left Maidan as soon as I spotted signs of separatism. I left Maidan and conscious people left with me, now they are in different battalion or in the National Guard’.
‘Maidan for me will always remain clean and bright place. But it is a long time since I’ve been there because it might hurt my heart. These event in peaceful Kyiv when there are fires – it is unpleasant. We are civilized people. We have driven away criminal authorities, now we need to find compromises and talk. We already have a gleam of peace and possibility to build a nation. Although it sounds painful it is high time to clean up the mess in the city centre’.
According to Parasiuk there are plenty of other legal and civilized methods to control authorities.
Reference. On July 9 Attorney General Vitaliy Yarema instructed the heads of Ministry of Internal Affairs and Ukrainian Security Service to take measures to free the central part of Kyiv and also 19 governmental buildings from the presence of people who ‘identify themselves with participants of Revolution of Dignity and Maidanivtsi’.
‘We deal not with Maidan but with its cheap and dangerous fake. They want to turn the symbol of Revolution into a caricature’.
According to the survey of Kyiv International Institute of Sociology that was carried out from July 1 to July 5, 82% of Kyiv residents treat tents in Maidan in negative way.
