Please! I appeal to Deputies of European Parliament. I principally emphasize, that I don’t feel myself guilty. I’m really against of war in Donbas region. I ‘m like a majority of European leaders, think that everything what happens is civil war there. I want to underline one more time, that when was chosen the highest measure of restraint for me, it was done consciously. Not just for humiliation of my fair name, but it was done also for intimidation of other citizens of Ukraine, for they don’t criticize authorities. Because if you criticize authority, you become or state traitor, or accomplice of Putin, or ‘the hand” of Moscow. It is very profitable definition for authorities, which accept any criticism as high treason. I tell it truly. You already heard that there is no any fact of my high treason. I underline it. U only heard the clowns which threaten to kill me and strangle my children. I beg on you very strongly: the journalists are conscience of society. As Ukrainian author Lina Kostenko said, that the journalists are eyes of society which sleeping. Our society isn’t sleeping now. Our society is intimidated now. In any case if it’s possible European judges and European parliament must intervene in this deal. It’s forbidden to put in prison because of dissent or anti-war rhetoric. If the court and prosecution don’t understand the difference between such definitions as “fact”, “mark” and “proposition”, the European parliament must understand it. So I ask you if you have opportunity you must spread this video in social networks and in internet because it’s still possible to criticize in internet. Understand please! Any journalist can be put behind the bars. For example, you can write that Poroshenko is blood-sucker, that he continues the war in Donbas consciously, where marauding, corruption and smuggling are prospering and they will tell to you that you are enemy of Ukraine. The Arch-foes had been shot in Stalin times and now they are convicted for a term from 12 to 15 years.
