    The government is apparently claiming he committed suicide, though the Right Sector founder Dmytro Yarosh is having none of that and calling for the Interior Minister to resign and the police units involved to be arrested. Apparently, in the face of all the threats of retaliation, Avakov has decided to crack down on the group and is reportedly planning to clear the Maidan of the group. Of course, the last person who tried to clear protesters out of the Maidan did not have that venture end well for him. The fractures are beginning to show with the Maidan revolutionaries as Klitshcko is now looking for a vote to unseat the acting president.
    And so.....it begins.

    I've heard several accounts...but most seem to concur that he was killed during a shoot out at a cafe where there were many eye witnesses.

    Most agree there was a shout-out at a cafe, but what happened after that is murky. Reports indicate he fled the cafe and it was outside that he was ultimately killed. One claim is that there was a struggle and they were grabbing at the gun when it just "went off" right into his heart. I must say, neither that nor suicide seem like terribly credible versions of events. The man was a serious liability from a PR standpoint, so I would not put it past the government to take a little extrajudicial action.

    At any rate, Right Sector supporters are threatening to storm the parliament if the Kiev government does not take action against the Interior Minister:

    Over 1,500 nationalists from the Right Sector have circled Ukrainian parliament in Kiev threatening to storm it on Thursday. They demanded the resignation of the interior minister after their leader Muzychko was killed in a police operation.


    Up to 2,000 members of the Right Sector, which recently was revamped into a political party, flooded the square in front of Verkhovna Rada in the Ukrainian capital on Thursday night. The radicals, who brought car tires to burn with them, were banging on the Parliament’s doors, smashing the glass parts in them.

    . . .


    Several hours into the standoff activists announced the rally was over for tonight as they decided not to storm the building just yet, but reconvene tomorrow.


    On Friday, Verkhovna Rada will hold an emergency session to discuss the possibility of Avakov’s resignation, one of the representatives of the Right sector told Itar-Tass. Right Sector activists have been urged to gather outside the Parliament building at 9:00 GMT.

    . . .


    Following the death, Right Sector leaders threatened Avakov with revenge, though they did not specify exactly what they would do. Dmitry Yarosh called for the minister's dismissal.


    "We’ll wait for the negotiators from the Parliament, the MPs, but we won’t settle for Avakov’s resignation – we want his tribunal,” the radicals announced through megaphones.
    You have a serious challenge for this government as giving in to the Right Sector at this point would basically sink all talk of disarming the paramilitary groups and harm the government's credibility, which would risk fueling unrest. On the other hand, ignoring the demands of the Right Sector could lead to a seizure of government buildings by the group and its supporters, which would risk fueling unrest.
