Ukraine: Nationalists march in support of suspected killers of Oles Buzina

Ukraine, Cherkassy
August 30, 2015 at 16:00 GMT +00:00 · Published

Ukrainian nationalist protesters marched through the streets of Cherkassy, Sunday, to show their support for suspected murderers Denis Polishchuk and Andrey Medvedko. Polishchuk and Medvedko were arrested in June in connection with the murder of journalist Oles Buzina.

Under the banner of 'freedom to patriots,' the protesters marched through the town chanting, waving Ukrainian flags and lighting smoke flares.

Polishchuk and Medvedko were arrested in June in connection with the murder of Buzina. Polishchuk was subsequently released on bail later that month. Forty-five-year-old Buzina was shot in April while jogging near his home in Kiev. The journalist was highly critical of President Petro Poroshenko's government and many believe his death was politically motivated. Both Polishchuk and Medvedko are believed to have connections to the right-wing nationalist Right Sector group.
