Last night in Lutsk, there was an attack on the building of the Consulate General of Poland, as it was reported by Ukrainian media. In addition to the most egregious fact, attention is paid to the way this information is submitted, including by representatives of law enforcement agencies.
Of course, the extraordinary incident was committed by the ‘unknown’. But, in spite of this, law enforcement officers who are hotfoot commenting, it is already clear that this was done “for the purpose of some warning or provocation.” The reader is also informed that a “grenade launcher or other serious weapon” was used. And if the weapon is ‘serious,’ then it is implied that the customer should be of the same level.
For now, the reader is given time to reflect, who would do it. Moreover, the clue can be found in the description of recent criminal events. In the Lvov region for the second time since the beginning of the year, a monument to the dead Poles in the village of Guta Penyatskaya was desecrated. “This was done by citizens of Ukraine hired for little money according to the plan developed in Moscow,” the Ukrainian MP Anton Gerashchenko reported without hesitation. Statements by Ukrainian high-ranking officials, including Petro Poroshenko, about the resonant murders in Kiev did not give the reader any time or opportunity to speculate at all, since the perpetrators were designated instantly – this is the ‘hand of the Kremlin’.
The criminal problem in the territory of the former Ukraine is not solved, but only gaining momentum. Information about the huge number of illegal weapons in Ukraine is constantly emerging in the media. For example, a few days ago, one of the passengers of the Kiev metro was found with an arsenal of grenades. Every now and then, somewhere, something explodes from the careless handling of weapons in the majority of not completely mentally healthy demobilized fighters from the front.
Add to this the incompetent law enforcement system of Ukraine, the impoverished population, the unemployment rate – and the reasons for the growth rates of lawlessness become apparent. Western curators are already beginning to refuse to participate in the processes that they call the “corrupt swamp of Ukraine.” Soon Ukrainians will have to be left alone with the rampant crime, and the Kiev authorities involved in this will blame Russia of all incidents to the bitter. Everybody who adequately understands the processes taking place now on the territory of the former Ukraine are concerned about the outcome of this situation.
