In Lugansk, screening of documentary about Presidential residence derailed for two days in row

13.01.2014, 10:16

In Lugansk, on December 26 the screening of the documentary almanac ‘Open Access’ was derailed for the second time on this week, Radio Liberty reports.

Public activists, who gather every day near the monument to Taras Shevchenko, planned to screen one of the almanac’s stories, the one about the President’s residence Mezhygiria, for local residents and to participate in a live TV link-up with EuroMaidans in Zaporizhzhia and Ivano-Frankivsk.

But, according to Radio Liberty, just like the day before, on December 25, an unknown organization set large speaker systems and kept music playing really loud. Because of this, the screening organizers moved over to the Moloda Gvardia park. When they started to set their equipment, an unidentified man threw brilliant green on the screen, while another unidentified man poured tea on the laptop of Lugansk EuroMaidan activists.

Both hooligans were detained by the police. At the same time, some people who introduced themselves as Don Cossacks joined the conflict: their leader with a whip in his hand tried to get to the activists’ equipment.

EuroMaidan activists state they don’t give up on the idea of organizing the screening of ‘Open Access’ in Lugansk and intend to do it shortly.
