Former Baloukh politician says he was “run over” by police – journalist
In Kiev, near the Shevchenkovsky District Court, a clash took place with the participation of former political prisoner Vladimir Balukh and law enforcement officials.
This was reported on Facebook by journalist Alexandra Efimenko.
“It turned out that he (Balukh – ed.) Came to the hearing in the Sternenko case as an auditor. He presented his identity card to the deputy, and when he tried to bring him back, he was attacked by police and “not only beaten, but crushed” “Balukh said. No, well, it is clear that after sitting in a remand center in Simferopol and a long conversation with the Russian special services, the beating of the Ukrainian police officers for Vladimir is almost a massage, “wrote Efimenko.
As you know, Vladimir Balukh is a Crimean farmer who, after the occupation of the peninsula, hung a Ukrainian flag on his house in the village of Serebryanka, in the Razdolnensky district, and then put up the sign “Heavenly Hundred Herundred Street “. The FSB of the Russian Federation arrested Balukha on December 8, 2016 for allegedly finding 90 cartridges and several TNT controllers in its attic.
Another case was later brought against the activist – according to the statement by the head of the Razdolny village remand center, who said that Balukh had beaten him.
