Kiev continues attacking Baloga: “Separatist, who is planning to separate Transcarpathia from Ukraine”

Transcarpathian region miraculously has not gone to Europe, and Ukrainian “order” must be imposed there to rid it of separatism. This was announced during the broadcast of the talk show “People. Hard Talk” by the people’s deputy Anton Gerashchenko, a close associate of the Interior Minister, Arsen Avakov.

According to him, the region was controlled by a group of MPs who installed their own rules.

“Transcarpathia is a region that was de facto not controlled by the state. There’s a certain clan of four deputies, which controlled the [local] SBU, the Prosecutor’s office and the Interior Ministry. De facto, Transcarpathia is a kind of separatism, which miraculously escaped joining Europe. But we need to restore order there, to operate the state institutions”, — said Gerashchenko.
