The statement of the Verkhovna Rada Deputy Anton Gerashchenko on the Russian secret service involvement in the death of the Ukrainian intelligence Colonel Maxim Shapoval wrongly, believes state Duma Deputy Ruslan Balbec. His assessment he shared in an interview with “Tape.ru” on Tuesday, June 27.
“Today, all the accusations of Russia in the organization of political murders have nothing but shocking air. And, frankly, the unfortunate Colonel Shapoval, perhaps, would be the last, whose death could someone please in Russia”, — said the MP.
According to Balbec, such an assumption Ukrainian politician could do due to the “progressive mental illness”: “MP Anton Gerashchenko long been sick of McCarthyism (the post-war socio-political movement in the U.S., named after Senator Joseph McCarthy; was accompanied by increased anti-Communist sentiments — approx. “Of the tape.ru”), so it regularly has visions, and in every corner, imagining the hand of Moscow”.
