This bloody tragedy received unexpected political overtones. As the father said himself, the murder happened because of a different attitude towards the current government.

“I don’t even know… We squabbled a bit … Who is right, who is wrong. It turned out that I was right. Little by little … And that’s all. ‘Poroshenko isn’t right’. There were some problems there… It begun with the fact that they make the wrong decisions. Everything is connected to political problems in our country. It was purely for politics …” said the detainee.
