    Ukraine far-right leader Muzychko dies 'in police raid'

    Oleksandr Muzychko, better known as Sashko Bily, died in a shoot-out with police in a cafe in Rivne in western Ukraine, the interior ministry said.


    He was a leader of Right Sector, a far-right group which was prominent in the recent anti-government protests.

    . . .


    A Right Sector organiser in Rivne has now threatened revenge for the killing of Muzychko, saying he had not been summoned by investigators.


    "We will avenge ourselves on [Interior Minister] Arsen Avakov for the death of our brother. The shooting of Sashko Bily is a contract killing ordered by the minister," said Roman Koval of the Right Sector in Rivne region, quoted by the Ukrayinska Pravda website.

    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.

    it looks like international bankers and their New World Order have taken control of the country once again. That's how the New World Order works. They fund both sides of a revolution then get rid of the resistance and take total control of the nation.

    This is good news. It shows that Ukraine's government is cracking down on Right Sector thugs instead of the other way around. It's quite a stunning turn of events, actually and one I think many Ukrainians agree with. This might also help curb some of Russia's criticism of Ukraine getting taken over by far right extremists.

    In America, he would have had a trial by a jury of his peers, to decide whether or not he should have been executed.

    Just sayin'.

    I heard on the radio that he was under investigation for commiting crimes and when they came to get him, he shot and wounded a cop in a shoot out. He was killed by police returning fire.


    That happens in America, too.

    Yeah, he'll likely become a martyr to Right Sector.

    But I also heard that a lot of people in Right Sector didn't like him either. So we'll see what becomes of it.

    But it's a good sign that Ukraine's interim government is cracking down on the far right. It will give them more credibilty as a government that can deal with it's own internal problems.

    To me it sounds more like a country further collapsing into anarchy with a government using desperate mesures to create even the impression that there might be something like public order.

    I see a bleak future in this conflict. Both sides are unwilling to cooperate and if lucky the east will simply split or states will get more self governing powers.

    Worst case scenario is all out collapse of social order and a civil war between Russians and Ukrainians within the country.

    That would be a worst case scenario, alright. But I don't think it will come to that. Neither side can afford a civil war and I don't think either wants one. Ukraine cracking down on the far right pro nationalists is a sign of cooperation and appeasement with Russia. Russia has stated that the far right nationalist are it's biggest concern and they won't hesitate to protect ethnic Russians in Ukraine if they are attacked. Ukraine is attempting to remove that excuse for Russian aggression.
