K. stogny declared that Gerashchenko told the media false information about the past of the journalist, who resigned from the interior Ministry at the end of 2010 and could not be the press Secretary of the Minister Vitaly Zakharchenko, who took the post in November 2011: “Gerashchenko went on TV and spread the deliberate lie that “stogny was press Secretary to the Minister Alexander Zakharchenko.” First, I don’t know who this “Alexander Zakharchenko”. Apparently, Gerashchenko was referring to the interior Minister in 2014 Vitaly Zakharchenko. The fact that I resigned from the internal Affairs bodies long before the Maidan and Minister Zakharchenko was not acquainted. These things are obvious and easily checked”.
Defended Golubina insulted Lutsenko
Anton Gerashchenko in 2017, spoke in support of the commander of the third assault company APU Yuri Goluban, who was accused that he in 2014 fought on the side of the Donetsk people’s Republic. In the Internet appeared the pictures with a man very similar to Golubina, surrounded by Donetsk militia. Gerashchenko criticized the people’s Deputy Igor Lutsenko, because he quoted former commander of special forces “alpha” and military-political leader of the DND Alexander Khodakovsky confirmed that in may of 2014 with him in the militia was, Goluban his former subordinate at the “alpha”.
It is strange that Igor Lutsenko did not think to ask the views of Givi and Motorola, before making a census of the Film. It seems that the Russians can always count on gullible people’s representatives, which post lie of Russian propaganda.
Gerashchenko said that Goluban retired from the Donetsk “alpha” back in 2009, and with the beginning of the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine, he volunteered in the battalion “Kyiv-1”.

20 Mar 2018
Anton Gerashchenko on his Facebook page:
– Nadezhda Savchenko must undergo a compulsory psychiatric examination to determine adequacy.
That is the conclusion I came to after carefully read the submission on the attraction to the criminal responsibility and the detention is still the people’s Deputy of Hope Savchenko.
At the end of the study of the documents has decided to vote for the removal of her parliamentary immunity and will not vote for her detention and arrest. This is my personal position. Let me explain why: first, don’t want to create an image of the victim. For me she’s not a victim and the perpetrator. And secondly, I believe that Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko instead for the arrest of Hope Savchenko, applied for the consent of Parliament to her compulsory examination in a mental institution.
