On October 17, 2017 several hundred Ukrainians came out to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to support the protest action organized by the public organizations and opposition political parties. Participants of the action claimed the establishment of the anti-corruption court, the abolishment of deputies’ immunity as well as adoption of the law on elections by public party lists. By all means, all this demands are reasonable. Respective draft laws are pending their hearing in the parliament. Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andrey Parubiy assured the protesters that the draft laws on the restriction of deputies’ immunity and reformation of electoral system will be put to the vote in the parliament in the nearest future. Therefore, that is unclear, why the protests continue, given that the adoption of the respective laws is an issue of a short term? Possibly, the purpose of the action lies beyond the implementation of the demands which has been put forward by the protesters? The assumption about Russian intrusion into Ukrainian internal affairs through organizational, financial, methodological and other support to certain political forces pursuing the aim to put the heat on the state authorities through this protest action in front of the Ukrainian parliament is growing increasingly stronger. Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov stated that former deputies of the Ukrainian parliament from the Viktor Yanukovich’s team, who presently reside in Russia, stand behind the financing of the tent camp in front of the Ukrainian parliament. In his arguments he refers to the fragment of radio program of “Govorit Moskva” radio station, where former deputy from the Party of Regions Vladimir Oleynik admitted that he personally finances one of such tent, which means he makes money contributions for “maintenance of the tent, procurement of foodstuff and support of protesters’ families.” Various international experts and observers also believe that organisation of such protest actions pursues quite certain purpose: to aggravate social and political tension in society, undermine the creditability of the acting government and destabilize the situation in the country which has already lost the part of its territory and appears weakened by the war at the east. According to them, that is political forces financed by Moscow who most probably stay behind the incitement of protest moods. Let alone the only fact that, as is commonly known, committing such actions is usual for Moscow. There is a lot of evidence in support of the fact that Kremlin actively supports and funds extreme right organisations and opposition forces not only in Ukraine, but also in many European states. Reputable international editions have published a great number of materials about Moscow’s involvement into the bribery of voters in France, inspiration of Dutch referendum, intrusion into presidential election campaign in the USA, attempt of rebellion in Montenegro, support of evidently pro-Russian forces in Moldova, funding of separatist movements in the EU states, etc. And now here is an attempt to organise fake Maidan in front of Ukrainian parliament.
