Valeriy Lunchenko on protests, saboteurs and mobilization (comments)
The head of the region, deputy Valeriy Lunchenko gave brief comments on the situation in the region: on mobilization, volunteers, calls for separatism, saboteurs, road blocking and protests.
All protests should be of peaceful nature. For calls for separatism - criminal liability.
- As to further road blocking within the region, I want to say to all organizers and participants - arbitrary road blocking is subject to criminal liability under applicable law. Especially since there are no reasons for road blocking in the region - only volunteers are mobilized. Arbitrary road blocking will be regarded as a call to destabilize the situation in the region and propagation of separatist sentiments. We respect the position of the community and listen to their opinions, but protests should be peaceful.
Most of the required number already have been mobilized. All are volunteers.
- More than half of the planned amount of mobilized persons for Transcarpathian region has been reached. All the mobilized persons are volunteers who give their consent. During the entire period of mobilization, no cases of forced mobilization have been recorded. If any fact of forced mobilization is recorded, the relevant commissariat will assume responsibility.
The activities for detention of saboteurs in the region continue
- The activities for detention of people - citizens of the Russian Federation, who incited the population to unfounded protests, continue in the region. According to various information, there are in a few dozen such persons in the region. The Security Service of Ukraine and the police are establishing connection of those people with deputies, heads of town and village councils. If the facts that all this was done with the aim of destabilizing the situation in the region are proven, guilty persons will be punished.
