The Mayor of the Ukrainian capital of Kiev Vitali Klitschko gave a bizarre interview to al-Jazeera television network, in which he seemed to be incapable of answering simple questions about acts of violations of human rights by Ukrainian authorities.
Klitschko said that there were no human rights violations made in the east of Ukraine. According to the Kiev mayor, the fighters of Azov Battalion do not fight against the militias in the Donbass.
The TV journalist tried to make references to reports by Amnesty International that accused the Armed Forces of Ukraine of allowing nationalists fight in volunteer battalions.
Klitschko said that the information about nationalists was not true as it was a part of media and propaganda war. The mayor of Kiev also said that he did not see swastika anywhere.
Furthermore, when the journalist asked Klitschko whether he rejected Amnesty International reports, the mayor of Kiev said: "I don't have any information, I live in Ukraine."
The strike was defensive in nature and came in response to three attacks on the US military in February
