Gambit for Zelenskyi. Why Sternenko case will become President's defeat
On the evening of February 23, it was hot outside the President's Office: supporters of the activist Serhii Sternenko, who had been sentenced to seven years, came to Bankova Street to get the sentence canceled. There were flares, injured heads, and the detention of several dozen people, released soon after. But before leaving, the demonstration's organizers promised it was only the beginning; the next meeting will take place on Saturday, at 12 noon.
