 The Regions said that it is not by the "rule of the underworld" and I will have to Answer for that, - the Author of Babushka & Cat Ad.

The former head of Yelizavetov village council Maxim Golosnoy who placed the now-famous outdoor advertisement has hidden his wife and 11-month baby – he is afraid of persecutions in regard to him and his family.

"They told me off-the record that the Regions are not happy with me, that this is not by the "rule of the underworld" and that I will have to answer for that", said Golosnoy in an interview to Gazeta.ua. "To rephrase it in ordinary language, "We are controlling the country and you are bothering us". If something happens to me the fault goes to the police. I don't do drugs, I don't drink, I don't smoke, I have no broken bones or hemorrhages, I passed a medical exam".

"I moved my wife and 11-year old baby in advance. I cannot say where. I am thankful to the journalists who are not ignorant. As long as things are like this, the society can change. I do not communicate with politicians now. I have friends in No One But Us organization who stormed the Parliament. If it gets too hard I will resort to their help".

"Two days ago I had to switch off my last phones because I had information that my case was given to Dnepropetrovsk Organized Crime Unit. These guys do not kid around. You can lose your health", summed up Golosnoy, "I was told that, "You will not get out. We will make you recognizance not to leave".
