Answering to a user by the name of dmitrym12, whose comments were deleted, Tsybulnik wrote, “You are stupid! Have you seen any cartoons as a child? You should know that leprechauns are always successful, rich and have a lot of gold. And they crush rats like you. So let God give (Kernes) the strength and will to clean the beautiful city of Kharkiv of people like you.”
With no hint of sarcasm, Tsybulnik later added, “Here we are writing odes to a great man for his doings in Kharkiv, and not counting his money.” According to Internet sources, Nelly Tsybulnik is the daughter of Tetiana Tsybulnik, head of district administration in Kharkiv and deputy of Kharkiv City Council. A look at her Instagram feed shows numerous photographs of her and mayor with her mother.
