"Cyberpolice analysts show us a copy of that website [launched] from the Russian Federation. This website was opened and administered in Lviv, Kharkiv, Kyiv and in one more region. Where did this come from? Yes, this was inspired from there [Russia], but this was done by our people here!" the minister said.

He has pointed out this is not the first case over the past three months where ultra-right raicals attacked Roma camps.

"We always qualify this in the same way. Unfortunately, this is pure medieval savagery," Avakov told a Svoboda Slova [Freedom of Speech] talk show on Ukraine's ICTV channel.

According to him, the issue raises questions not only to the police but also to the society as a whole.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Pustomytivskiy District Court of Lviv region ruled on a preventive measure in the form of pre-trail arrest with no right to bail for two suspects in the attack on the Roma camp outside Lviv and murder.
