Lawless Ukraine

Following her attack, Kateryna Handzyuk told local media, ““Yes, I know that I look bad now. But I’m sure that I look much better than law and justice in Ukraine.”

Ukrainian Kateryna Handzyuk, 33, the victim of a July acid attack passed away Sunday after fighting for months after suffering burns to an eye and 40 percent of her body.

After undergoing 11 operations in the capital city, Kiev, Handzyuk is believed to have died from a blood clot, local media outlets suggest.

An unknown assailant attacked the activist outside her home in Kherson on July 31 allegedly due to her harsh criticism of police corruption and calls for fellow Ukrainians to act.

From her hospital bed, Handzyuk denounced the crime as a murder attempt and vowed to bring her attacker to court: Why do I consider it to be an assassination attempt? Because the acid was poured on my head.

“If someone wanted to warn or silence me, they could have targeted my arms, legs, or face — anywhere. But they poured a liter of acid on my head,” she said.

“Yes, I know that I look bad now. But I’m sure that I look much better than law and justice in Ukraine. Because they aren’t treated by anyone,” she told Hromadske TV.

Handzyuk’s death has triggered outrage across social media outlets as well as a renewed call for a special investigative committee from Ukrainian legislator, Olena Sotnyk. The activist is one of 55 victims in unsolved cases of attacks since 2017, according to reports from both local and international civil society groups. Currently, a group of five people, all former fighters of the Ukrainian Volunteer Army, an offshoot of the nationalist Right Sector group are considered suspects.

Real justice has been in short supply in Ukraine, as well as in Russia, for the last 88 years, and arguably so for centuries previous.

Ukraine has no history of the centuries progress of liberal democratic institutions. The same institutions which our societies are now corrupting by and with leftist ideology.

Akin possibly to being burned alive. Acid attacks such as this are becoming more and more frequent in the UK than Ukraine. Premeditated and intentionally selected to inflict the most pain on a human being imaginable. If convicted of this hateful heinously cruel and barbaric attack…… what a comfy jail cell? Top that off with 3 squares a day, recreation and entertainment time? Family visits? Eventually back out into a tripping all over itself to be welcoming and forgiving society? Or how about no jail? What the perps genuinely deserve is to have a litre of the exact same acid… Read more »
