Tigipko: Members of Party of Regions forced to withdraw from the party
People’s Deputy Sergey Tigipko said that in Western and Central regions of Ukraine members of the Party of Regions were forced to write a statement of withdrawal from the party and were threatened with violence. In particular, cars and houses of some party members were arsoned.
«Now, all across Central and Western Ukraine vigilante justice over the members of the Party of regions occurs. From burning houses to coercion in order to write petition of the withdrawal from the faction,» Tigipko said.
Tigipko expressed concern due to the acts of vigilante justice ongoing everywhere, and at the Parliament session asked the head of the SSU, which is currently Valentina Nalyvaychenko, to protect the PR members.
