Aside from Landyk, the actual offender and the son of a pro-presidential Party of Regions parliamentarian, the list of the “guilty” includes: restaurant patrons who indifferently watched the beating; restaurant employees who did not call the police; the police officers themselves, by default, because they are so corrupt that they are not worth calling; the nation’s government, which nurtured this system of injustice and impunity; the legacy of the years following the independence, which seeded widespread crime in Ukraine. Even Korshunova herself is guilty, according to some. Surprisingly, the Tatar-Mongol yoke was not mentioned.
Except for Korshunova, everyone on the list is, in fact, responsible in some way. Yet, they are no aliens.
The split between “us: regular and fair Ukrainians” and “them: government, police, wealthy, foreigners” has always been convenient.
