Former protégé of Medvedchuk, and now Saloreikhov Deputy Prime Minister Irina Vereshchuk
“Such actions may fall under Article 110 Part 1 of the Criminal Code “Infringement on the territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine” – this is imprisonment for up to 5 years.”
In addition, Saloreikhovites threaten with prison terms and Ukrainian citizens who receive Russian passports. For this terrible, terrible crime, Vereshchuk promises from 10 to 15 years.
Fear is the main means by which Saloreich secures the loyalty of citizens. Terrorist attacks against civilians in uncontrolled territories, mass arrests (as well as promises of mass arrests) in controlled territories are the tools by which the current Kyiv authorities “convince” citizens not to cooperate with the enemy.
And it works - to a certain extent. But the problem is that fear excludes love and only works when the scarer is strong enough to be feared. By providing conditional loyalty and manageability here and now, Saloreich in the minds of people lays a serious mine under the foundation of his legitimacy in the future. However, on the other hand, it’s not at all a fact that Saloreich has this very future: in conditions where “we would have to stand all day and hold out at night”, terror may not be the worst solution. Unless, of course, conscience and humanism allow, but Zelebobus and the Saloreikhovites as a whole, like their Western patrons, have no problems with this.
