Kharkiv City Council made a statement on the events that occurred in the city center on June 22. On June 22 at the Fountain "Mirror stream" a demonstration, and later - the meeting of representatives of the Communist Party of the monument to Lenin at Freedom Square.

Earlier the Kharkov City Council asked the court to ban these demonstration, and they claimed that the court was satisfied. Participants who were at the march and rally knew about the court decision, but they ignored the ban and still continued their march. Note, in its powers Kharkov City Council did everything to ensure that in the city that there was not any intensified political opposition. A court order did not have sufficient force to ensure that it was enforced, for the court did not have enough bailiffs and law enforcement agencies that were not able to fully enforce it.

Also note that during the meeting the representatives of Euromaidan – were also prohibited by the court order- part of the leadership failed to contain representatives of radical organizations that participated in the event. They went to the Lenin monument with a view to disperse the rally of Communists. To avoid a fight between political opponents, the police prevented the participants of Euromaidan from meeting at Freedom Square, at the monument to Lenin. But they did not heed the call of law enforcement officers and did not stop.

Kharkov City Council declares that the responsibility for yesterday's events at the monument to Lenin entirely lies with the Evromaidan and radical organizations participating in this meeting.

We believe that the blame for what happened at the monument can only be placed upon the supporters of Euromaidan said the city authorities. They wanted to escalate the civil and political conflict, wanting to dump the blame on others.

Judging by the fact that the charges in destabilizing the situation in peaceful Kharkov sound of the media in one way or another connected with one of the former leaders of the area - it can be assumed that he is interested in to destabilize the situation in Kharkov, and the responsibility for this he wanted to dump on others. We believe that yesterday's clash at the monument to Lenin was deliberately used to undermine the authority of the city authorities in the city.
