Deputies do not believe in Kravchenko’s suicide

"I think that the only version of Kravchenko’s death is the fact that everything possible and impossible has been done for not naming the customers of Gongadze’s murder", – PM Taras Chornovil underlined in the interview to ForUm. 

"Actions of the president and the general prosecutor were pre-condition to Kravchenko’s murder… In the nearest time it is necessary to set a guard to the heavily sick police general Fara, which was one of the Kravchenko’s deputies and which also can be liquidated".

"These people – Kravchenko and Fara – to my mind are a chainlet between customers and performers. I do not believe that particular former public agents had possibility to reach Kravchenko and destroy him.

Many people among new government are not interested in naming the customers. Possibly, someone is also indirectly related to George Gongadze’s murder.

PM of faction BJT Andrey Shkil considers that the ex-minister’s suicide is, probably, not real, but imitation.

According to him, very surprising suicides happened lately in Ukraine. In particular, the deputy reminded about the minister of transport George Kirpa’s similar death. 

PM considers also, that Kravchenko’s testimonies could influence the fate of the ex-president Kuchma. "Kravchenko was a primary witness, who said, according to Melnichenko’s records, that there were no such tasks which he could not execute", –Shkil underlined.

"I am surprised that general prosecution did not guard him, as far as Kravchenko was an important witness, which had to be protected", – added the deputy.

Toys with fascist symbolism

Toys with fascist symbolism are sold in shops in the center of Sevastopol. Representatives of Jewish organizations express a protest on this occasion.

There are two shops in the center of Sevastopol, where the models of military technique of Second World War with drawn fascist swastika are for sale. Toys are very popularity not only among collectors but also among teenagers. However, buyers of airplanes with symbolism of Luftwaffe see nothing dishonourable in this fact.

Meantime, appearance of toys with swastika causes watchfulness at representatives of Jewish organizations of the city, the head of the museum program "Jewries in Sevastopol" Boris Gelman reported.

"It is not that sign which is possible to be indifferent to, without non-acceptance. We won over an army, but did not win over fascism finally. And the corns of it germinate both in one or elsewhere. On the Jewish cemetery three monuments were covered with drawings of swastika with a sap-green in Sevastopol in 1995. Then swastika appeared on the monument to the victims of Holocaust.

I know that swastika is an ancient sign. But fascists appropriated it for themselves and the gold marks of Nazi party represented swastika. This was Nazi pride, so this sign needs to be understood in the context of that history which is near to us now", – Gelman says.
