Communist Party faction won't work at Rada until guilty in its office arson found – Symonenko
Leader of the Communist Party Petro Symonenko has said that the party's faction in Verkhovna Rada won't take part in the work of the parliament until the persons to blame for the recent arson of the Communist Party's office in Kyiv are brought to account.
"I address to the law enforcement agencies and demand they hold an inquiry into the crime and personally bring to account those guilty," Symonenko said delivering a speech from the rostrum of Verkhovna Rada on Thursday.
He called the arson of the party's office as actions meant to "cover traces of crime" adding that this is "a fascist method."
Symonenko stressed that he knows who are guilty in arson saying that people close to ruling parties and parliament's majority are involved in the crime.
As reported, on Wednesday afternoon representatives of the State Executive Service due to law enforcement agencies without using force released office of the Communist Party, which was captured by the protesters on February.
