Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard 22:10:32 30/12/2016 Politnavigator.net The leader of Komsomol members of Ukraine Mikhail Kononovich became a figurant involved in a criminal case opened by the SBU under article 109 of the criminal code of Ukraine — “actions aimed at violent change or the overthrow of the constitutional system, or capture of state power”. Kononovich’s speeches, where he called his adherents for the “fight against the Kiev junta by all lawful methods”, became the reason for this. The criminal case opened by the SBU threatens imprisonment for up to 10 years. Kononovich has already signed a contract with his lawyer. “As is known, evil rages especially strongly before its death. And evil (which is also a rat) driven into a corner tries to bite more furiously,” commented Komsomol. Kononovich is known by the fact that he twice, contrary to the resistance of nationalists, established a memorial plate to Oles Buzina at an entrance where the writer lived and was killed. Kononovich is also one of heads of the Russian community of Lutsk. During the elections to the Verkhovna Rada in 2016, Kononovich was beaten by Nazis with steel rods. Copyright © 2016.
