UPDATE: Kolomoisky claims that many recent statements attributed to him are fake. We are currently trying to verify the authenticity of this report. Apologies for jumping the gun. 
 
Enough lies! We demand the truth from the authorities. The truth about the real state of the economy and the country's finances. The truth about the war, lost by our incompetent generals; the truth about the thousands of dead and forgotten on the battlefields.
 
Friends, my dear Ukrainians! A year ago, you have proven to the world that you can not be brought to your knees. Now is the time to prove it once again! Some in Kiev have forgotten that you — not cattle — are a great and free nation! "Revolution dignity" continues!
 
Compatriots! Support the initiative of residents of Dnipropetrovsk! I encourage you on March 28 to take to the streets of our cities and say a firm "no" to the attempts of the current regime to return Ukraine back to the days of authoritarianism and lawlessness! We begin to fight for our rights, for our future, for the future of our country!
Get your popcorn.
