A few days ago, in the courtyard of his own house, an attack was made on the chairman of the Novoukrainsky village council of the Razdelnyansky district of the Odesa region, a representative of the OPPOSITION BLOC Volodymyr Dragan.
The attacker did not hide his face; he turned out to be the son of a political opponent who lost to Volodymyr Dragan in the elections. Under a completely false pretext, the criminal entered the courtyard of the house of the chairman of the village council. Then he immediately attacked the 70-year-old oppositionist and struck him in the head, from which the pensioner lost consciousness and fell to the ground. The attacker continued to beat the unconscious man, but the tragic consequences were prevented by the victim’s spouse, who intervened in the cruel beating of her husband and started calling for help.
Currently, Vitaliy Sautyonkov, a deputy of the Odesa Regional Council from the OPPOSITION BLOC, provides the oppositionist with both material and legal assistance.
On October 11, a coordination meeting will be held in the Prosecutor’s Office of the Odesa region, chaired by the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko, with the participation of Interior Minister of Ukraine Arsen Avakov and other heads of law enforcement agencies of Ukraine on countering crime, crimes against public safety, and the investigation of criminal offenses against community activists.
Meanwhile, real crimes for political reasons continue, and investigations are conducted according to a well-known scheme, which is often on the side of the criminals.
