Hopefully the family will get some justice during the appeal process.

In Ukraine, frying an egg in public and involvement in the suspicious death of a student are apparently worthy of similar punishments from the country’s courts.

When will visas be revoked and sanctions imposed on Yanukovych, PoR and

their oligarchs. They live like kings in EU and other democratic

countries while denying freedom and exploiting the people.

Looks like throwing cans of paint is far more important than an investigation into a young persons life snuffed out too soon.

So this is what the Yanukovych PoR regime means for Ukraine.

Repression, opression, murder and censorship.

Ukrainians must wake up and oust these criminals.

Let's be clear about this, Ukrainian militia are pigs in uniforms. Due to the severity of the injuries, it is obvious these pigs murdered Indylo. How do you receive a 5 year suspended sentence for murdering someone? These pigs have murdered someones son! Have murdered a son of Ukraine.

These pigs think they have immunity to beat, bash and kill innocent and poor Ukrainian citizens and the judiciary back them up. It is time these pigs in uniform were put in prison and butt raped by one and all!
