Right sector On Rampage In Ukraine
The situation in the Ukraine is worsening with fascist bands on the advance everywhere but in the East they are being repulsed. We live in a Looking Glass world where truth is inverted and Russia and Ethnic Russians in the Ukraine are portrayed as he aggressors.Here is a round up of recent stories.
Right Sector nationalists behind deadly attack on anti-Maidan activists in Kharkov
Two people were killed overnight in Ukraine's Kharkov, where gunmen from the radical Right Sector movement attacked self-defense activists , Ukraine’s Interior Ministry said in a statement. The armed group barricaded itself inside the local headquarters of Right Sector, from where it was shooting and throwing flash grenades and Molotov cocktails at Kharkov anti-Maidan activists who gathered outside.
Two people were killed in the shooting and at least four more were wounded, authorities said. The armed group took hostage three men – two activists and one policeman – who reportedly went inside to negotiate their surrender. Mayor Gennady Kernes managed to get one of the hostages out after spending around 10 minutes inside the barricaded Right Sector headquarters.
Police deployed at the scene cordoned off the area and in the early hours of Saturday stormed the building. Around 30 gunmen were detained as a result.
Concerns as Ukraine’s govt hastily revamps Maidan squads into National Guard
The creation of Ukraine’s National Guard – the custodian of the coup-imposed government – has raised concerns that it may later be deployed to eastern regions of Ukraine to suppress the population increasingly standing up against Kiev.
Ukraine has established a National Guard which will be comprised of former and current Ukrainian troops and volunteers from Maidan self-defense squads. Its declared goal, according to the statement of the country’s parliament, is the protection of Ukrainians against external and internal aggression as well as ensuring territorial integrity of the country.
A decree enabling the creation of National Guard has already been signed by the coup-imposed President of Ukraine, Aleksandr Turchinov, after it was hastily passed by the parliament on Thursday. A total of 262 members of the Rada voted in favor of establishing the Ukrainian National Guard. According to the law, the National Guard's chief will be appointed by the Rada upon the recommendation of the acting president.
A major of a central Ukrainian city has been taken to the police station after a being assaulted by the Right Sector thugs who interrupted the city council meeting, demanding his resignation.
The incident happened when Poltava’s mayor Alexander Mamaj refused to hold a meeting when members of the Right Sector joined the session. Mamaj asked them to leave the room, but they refused. Then he tried to leave the session himself but was not allowed to leave through the main exit. Footage shows the mayor being verbally and physically assaulted by the gang.
He then tried to leave through the second exit, but was again assaulted by the angry crowd inside the meeting room. He eventually made it into the hall. The mayor then returned surrounded by a number of security guards, at which point a massive brawl erupted. Right Sector’s crew had by that time secured all the exits demanding Mamaj resign.
After the police involvement, the mayor was taken to the station, after one of his attackers filed a police reports claiming that Mamaj hit him in the groin. A woman and the mayor’s security guard were injured in the incident, local media reports.
Fears of possible armed assaults and provocation in Ukraine and neighboring countries are on the rise after yet another report that rocket grenade launchers, firearms and munitions have been stolen from a military warehouse in western Ukraine.
A source in the Ukrainian Interior Ministry told RIA Novosti that the coup appointed Interior Minister Arsen Avakov has recently been notified that a large cache of guns and ammunition was missing from one of the military warehouses.
“Reports to Avakov indicate that over 5,000 Kalashnikov rifles, 2,741 Makarov handguns, 123 light machineguns and 12 Shmel rocket launchers were stolen from the Interior Troops’ depots in the Lvov Region in late February,” the source said.
“The investigation has also established that 1,500 F-1 hand grenades and a large number of munitions are missing,” it added.
Earlier it was reported that at the end of February 2014 during the assaults on a number Ukrainian military units in the Western Lvov Region, radicals stole some 1,200 firearms, including around 1,000 Makarov handguns, over 170 Kalashnikov rifles as well as machineguns and sniper rifles.
