 Avakov to counterclaim against Tiahnybok

Interior Minister Arsen Avakov intends to file a counterclaim against the leader of Svoboda party Oleh Tiahnybok.

He announced this on his Facebook page, Censor.NET reports.

"Tiahnybok is suing me! At least, there is more evolution to this step, than to that criminal cave stupidity he was demonstrating outside the Verkhovna Rada. I rejoice at the progress. He will get a counterclaim. And he would rather take conscience to court if left any..." Avakov wrote.

Earlier, Ukraine's Interior Minister blamed the bloody rioting on the All-Ukrainian Union "Svoboda" and its leader Oleh Tiahnybok.

In his turn, Tiahnybok said that he intended to file an anti-defamation claim against the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov on protection of honor, dignity and business reputation suffered through accusations of his involvement in the Verkhovna Rada rioting.
