 Malyy Maiak Mayor Died for 9 Thousand Hectares of Land for Yanukovych’s Company

Leader of the Crimean republican organization of Batkivschyna Andriy Senchenko proposed several versions of the reasons for controversial suicide of Malyy Maiak mayor Leonid Malyk.

"Unfortunately, Malomayaksky village council was involved in a scam of 9 thousand hectares of land, which was given away to four notorious Ukrainian hunters in the very top of Ukrainian government (the Crimean parliament decision on the allocation of nearly 9000 hectares of hunting grounds in Greater Alushta to Kyiv Association of Hunters and Fishermen Kedr)" said Senchenko in a comment to Arguments of the Week Crimea.

He noted: "It may well be that there were some problems with this land allotment, and thus they dumped all loose ends and needed to replace the head of the village council at any cost, even at the cost of a human life." Another motive, according to Senchenko may be linked to "the desire of Makeievka team to dismiss mayors of Southern Coast cities and towns.

"Makeevka 'galaxy' that headed the Crimea has failed. It peaked at the moment when the Party of Regions (in the person of President Viktor Yanukovych) had the support at 822,000 people, and now, in the last parliamentary elections, with all the fraud they got 383,000. Half a million Crimeans turned away! Of course, they will have to answer for that," says the Crimean opposition member.

Therefore, in his opinion, Makeevka's gang is preparing to leave the Crimea. "Today there are 'overseers' in every city, district, village. Those are criminals.

And the mayors of Yalta, Alushta and Malyy Maiak? They are Crimeans or people who have been living in the Crimea for a long time and the city council secretaries are from Donetsk, Makeievka, so there are efforts to remove the mayors. Right now, for example, it is Boiarchuk (Mayor of Yalta). They will leave, and their minions, the secretaries of the city councils will be acting mayor and will be overseers," added Senchenko.

He also noted that, with respect to the deceased Malyk there was "pressing and they illegally tried to put him in a mental hospital. According to my information, the next day if they did not get him out of there, then he would be sent for compulsory treatment, as it was in the 60's and 70's: a mental hospital for dissidents," said the head of the Crimean Batkivschyna.
