July 29: An assembly was held in the Kominternovsky district of the Odessa region, organized by the People’s Rada [Council] of Bessarabia. This was reported by the correspondent of Ukraina.Ru from the scene.
The event was attended by representatives of the People’s Rada of Bessarabia. Participants held signs with the slogans: “Down with Poroshenko,” “We are for a free Bessarabia,” and “Saakashvili go home.”
“I think our mission is to protect the interests of the inhabitants of Bessarabia in the face of the regional and central government, to officials who have forgotten how to act,” he said in his speech.
“Bessarabia does not trust Saakashvili, Bessarabia does not trust Poroshenko. So today we have chosen a defender, the commandant of Bessarabia. He will defend our interests in the offices of the bureaucrats,” she explained.
The Bulgarian community leader was unable to attend the events and the election of the commandant, as she continues her hunger strike against the repression in Odessa. [Shevchenko was attacked and beaten on June 16, following threats from Right Sector fascists.]
