Read in Russian

LUGANSK, September 4 (Lugansk Media Centre) - The image of a democratic country which Ukraine has been creating for itself is not true to the fact given the impunity of those guilty of the genocide against the Donbass population, as it became the sword of Damocles for the country, chairman of the Lugansk People’s Republic agricultural sector trade union Denis Kandyrin told the Lugansk Media Centre.

“The impunity of the criminals who unleashed the Donbass war still hangs over Ukriane like the sword of Damocles. The image of a just democratic country which Ukrainian authorities like to trumpet about is not consistent with the reality at all,” Kandyrin said. “Poroshenko, Turchinov, Kolomoisky, Khomchak and Yatsenyuk are criminals who ordered to kill Donbass civilians; they live a quiet life and prosper, taking high-ranking posts and continuing to profit from the war. In the meantime, Donbass regularly comes under fire resulting in new fatalities and damage to infrastructure.”

He added that Ukraine’s western partners also ignored the Donbass genocide committed by Ukraine.

“Zelensky has not delivered on his election promise to get to the bottom of things and punish the culprits. The Ukrainian authorities are literary bogged down in lies and constant promises which nobody hurries to fulfil,” the trade union chairman said.
