PoR has posted a clunky 'strongly worded statement' [oooh!] filled with vintage '50's Soviet-style rhetoric, condemning declarations made by the ex-Minister of Internal affairs Yuri Lutsenko at a public meeting in Zhytomyr yesterday, and threatening that he will be called to account for them.
The PoR statement claims three forces drive 'People's self-defence' movement leader Lutsenko: cynicism, hatred, and a pathological need to destroy everyone and everything.
"Only a person stung by a pathological hatred to those who does not share his views is capable of demonstrating such a level of abuse towards authorities who are consistently leading the country's economy from a state of chaos onto the path of normal development.
Calling this 'avantyurizm' would be the correct definition of this phenomenon...Lutsenko has descended to loutish [khamskykh] comments directed at the acting government and its leader, no doubt in the expectation that the government and PM will lower themselves to his level. [Yanukovych's nickname when he spent 3 1/2 years in prison as a youth was 'kham' He has allegedly frequently used violence towards fellow ministers - LEvko]
He [Lutsenko] will be held responsible by the people he is calling to the barricades and who could succumb to this provocation. They will certainly ask him: in who's name are you inciting us to break up Ukraine? And indisputably punishment will be fair.."
The leader of "People's self-defence" Yuri Lutsenko had demanded at the meeting that prime minister Viktor Yanukovych give a report about his work in Kabmin over the year, "Victor Fedorovych, it is time to answer for the disorder! Either give us improvement - or go!", said Lutsenko, [referring to last year's PoR's election slogan.]
On the nascent coalition of national unity, Lutsenko said, "This is not the coalition of national unity, but a coalition of national traitors". The leader of "People self-defence" also issued a call to people present at the Zytomyr meeting to turn to VR speaker Oleksandr Moroz and ask: "What is the rate of exchange for pieces of silver today?", and also called Anatoliy Kinakh, who recently dumped NSNU to a accept a seat in the KabMin, a robot [dear oh dear..]
PoR are Lutsenko's best recruiting sergeants - their American PR advisers and spin doctors must be pulling their hair out.
p.s. Police detained Lutsenko's lawyer, who was present when Lutsenko's apartment was searched, for several hours yesterday.
