You're reading: Halya Coynash: Cynical verdicts in case of ‘Vasylkiv terrorists’

Today’s verdict was not unexpected given
the cynicism with which this trial has been run, but profoundly disturbing
given the absurdity of the charges and the lack of any evidence.  

Two deputies of the Vasylkiv Town Council
 –  Ihor Mosiychuk and Serhiy Bevz, and fellow member of the far
right organization “Patriot of Ukraine”, Volodymyr Shpara  have been found
guilty of planning to blow up the [already dismantled] monument to Vladimir
Lenin in Boryspil on Independence Day in 2011, planning a terrorist act and
illegal use of weapons and explosives. They are also supposed to have called
for the overthrow of the constitutional order.

Even if all the supposed evidence which
the men say was planned is deemed to have been authentic, there is simply no
proof of anything except the men’s “Patriot of Ukraine” affiliations.
