We informed you in a previous article, the war between the nationalists against the oligarchs in Ukraine, the “nationalist” being themselves in the pay of some oligarchs.

Here’s the video of the shooting that took place in Mukachevo on July 11, killing four people (two members of Pravy Sektor and two civilians) and thirteen wounded:

Petro Poroshenko, the President of Ukraine, encouraged by the United States, decided to do away with the Right Sector that brought him to power agitating the people on Maidan Square and fomenting the coup, but manifested in recent times some inclination to repeat the operation against him.

Following the shooting which opposed him to a band more or less mafia of a deputy of parliament in Kiev, Pravy Sektor (Right Sector) was first taken refuge in a traffic police post at the entrance to the city, before leaving in the hills of Transcarpathia region, go underground.

An anti-terrorist operation was launched to capture Saturday, July 18 in the morning. The mountain rang all weekend firefights from both sides. Dmitro Iaroch, their leader, refusing to surrender.

“As stated by our guys in the woods, no one will take our right to conduct our last fight, he wrote on July 18 on Facebook. Intended for law enforcement: “I ask all my brothers in arms of the Ukrainian Army, National Guard, Security Services, Ministry of Interior and the Customs Service to disobey this criminal government. ”

Lately, this pro-European nationalist party had felt betrayed. Its leader Dmitry Yarosh denounced Western pressure and requested to stop “worshiping the European Union, this colossus with feet of clay. “He also threatened the government to redo a new Maidan specifying that this time, Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, do not escape them, unlike former President Yanukovych who, for his part, had found refuge in Russia . It even seems that the events of Mukachevo were actually intended to bring a new kind of Orange Revolution.

And Pravy Sektor would not be what it is if it did not see behind this drama which it is confronted, the shadow of the Republic of Donetsk:

“Not that criminelless local organizations active in the region, but also the Ryazan commando detachment. Their leader confirmed that his men were present. According to preliminary data we have more information on illegal traffic, sports complex also used as a training base for fighters DNR “said Andrei Charaskine, the spokesman Pravy Sektor.

One wonders what the Donetsk fighters could well be so far from their base in the Ukrainian … But chaos, everything is possible.

Demonstrations took place in Kharkov and Lvov shouting “Revolution! Death to the criminal regime! The revolution has no end ”

It can be seen that tensions in Ukraine multiply and come from different sides at once. But Poroshenko who put in the new government of foreigners entirely devoted to US interests, bases his authority and force abroad. Besides the US organized military maneuvers bringing together several nationalities, which will take place soon in western Ukraine.

Pending the outcome of the confrontation, in Mukachevo a significant military presence demonstrates the commitment of the management team in power in Kiev. The National Guard, so fierce in the Donbass against insurgents, moves in Mukachevo in combat vehicles, while helicopters flew over the area. Transcarpathia took on the appearance of war by military means usually deployed against the Republics of Novorossiya. Kiev fierce regime calls these military operations against its opponents in the West as in the East, “anti-terrorist operations.”

This regulation has dramatically between the accomplices of Maidan, moves border neighbors of Western Ukraine, Mukachevo is situated 150 kilometers from the Hungarian border. In Transcarpathia lives especially 150,000 ethnic Hungarians. Budapest is closely following developments:

“If the Hungarians in Transcarpathia were persecuted and they were forced to flee, we would help and would welcome all” promised M.Lazar, the Hungarian Prime Minister. Budapest which is developing support programs for Hungarians in Ukraine is also strengthening its border. In this context, the eventual persecution of the Hungarian minority in Transcarpathia, we escape a little … But who is not persecuted in Ukraine? The complexity of the situation in the country becomes opaque by the day, and turns to a civil war that could be generalized.

For the record, the Dnieper battalion emanates from the political party Pravy Sektor. He was one of the fiercest among those battalions rampant (or raged) against the population of Donbass in the east of the country, where civil war continues.

This movement of neo-Nazi extreme right is closely linked to nationalist party Svoboda, member of the coalition which came to power in Ukraine after the coup of Maidan in February 2014, also called second Orange Revolution. In January and February 2014, Pravy Sektor activists had participated in the occupation of public buildings, the looting of police arsenals and violence against the security forces. They are then activated in suppressing the rebellion of the New Russia, in the south-east.

Dmitri Yarosh, their leader, is probably still under the influence of a research mandate of Russian General Prosecutor’s Office. In Parliament, he had a few ambitions to be elected for president in 2014.

The National Guard was sent to fight in Mukachevo has its origin as Pravy Sektor, of the coup of Maidan. It is within agitators of Maidan Square that it drew to form an initiative of the Rada. It is under control of the Ministry of Interior, is the political police of the regime. While Pravyi sektor is or was the private militia of the oligarch governor of Dniepopetrovsk region, which he was forced to resign some weeks ago following a standoff with the chocolate oligarch of Kiev: Poroshenko.

Right Sector protest at the Presidential administration building in Kiev/TASS

Translated on July 14, 2015 by Kristina Rus
TASS (July 12, 2015)

The militants of the unit, hiding near Mukachevo, received the order to open fire in the event of an attack

More than 10 thousand militants of the “Right sector” (right-wing extremist organization banned in Russia ) were mobilized throughout Ukraine. This was announced by the speaker of the Ukrainian volunteer corps (DUK) “Right sector,” Andrey Sarasin on the TV channel “112”.

“More than 10 thousand activists have been mobilized throughout Ukraine. As for Mukachevo: we managed to evacuate the wounded and one killed. Now there are negotiations,” – he said.

According to Sharaskin, “Right sector” is actively organizing checkpoints on the roads leading to Transcarpathia, in order to prevent police from sending reinforcements to Mukachevo.

The speaker of the DUC assured that the radicals do not want to escalate the situation, but all the militants of the “Right sector” left the positions in the zone of military operation in the Donetsk region and are now at their bases in full combat readiness.

The militants of the “Right sector” hiding near the town of Mukachevo, Transcarpathian region, received the order to open fire if attacked, reported the correspondent of TV channel “Inter” from location.

” The “Right sector” again showed its bandit face in Mukachevo. Kiev does not want to break with the neo-Nazis. Trying to put a lid on it. Soon it will be too late” – Konstantin Dolgov, Russian Foreign Ministry Commissioner for human rights, democracy and the rule of law.

“Now in Mukachevo the forces of regional police and National guard are concentrated. Fighters of “Right sector”, according to the latest information, received the order to open fire in case of attack,” – said the correspondent. According to him, the police and the national guard surrounded the mountain, where the “Right sector” fighters were hiding.

According to the latest data, during a shootout between security forces, [security guards of] local businesses and the “Right sector” in Mukachevo on July 11, two soldiers of the “Right sector” were killed, four more were wounded. 13 people are now in the hospital.

Previously, a PM and advisor to the President of Ukraine for humanitarian affairs, Olga Bogomolets voiced the demands of the supporters of the “Right sector”, who are protesting near the presidential administration:

“To lay down parliamentary mandate and thus stop legalizing the authorities; to dissolve the coalition; to adopt a law on impeachment of the President; to remove parliamentary immunity; to declare early elections (parliament); not to accept changes to the Constitution”.

On Sunday, the group threatened to bring 17 battalions to Kiev.

“In Transcarpathia for 20 years contraband is covered up by the police, for the year of Avakov’s post, the situation there has not changed. It also has not changed in the country as a whole. Lustration wasn’t completed, corruption is blooming. We do not intend to stand peacefully, we will communicate with the authorities differently, harshly” – Artem Skoropadsky, press secretary of the “Right sector”

[Besides a russophobic agenda and its de facto function as an extrajudicial muscle for business disputes in today’s Ukraine, where a weapon grants authority, and its key role as the engine of Maidan, the “Right Sector” presents itself as an agent of change for social justice, with slogans appealing to many rightfully disgruntled Ukrainian citizens, which is why many of them supported Maidan – KR]

On July 11 in the town of Mukachevo (Transcarpathian region of Ukraine) the militants “Right sector” attacked a cafe at a sports club, owned by local MP Mikhail Lagno, as well as traffic police patrol post.

In the attacks and ensuing skirmishes of extremists with law enforcement there were killed and wounded. “Right sector” reported the death of two fighters. Surviving militants refused to surrender and were blocked, the representatives of the anti-terrorist center of the SBU were negotiating with them. As a result the “Right sector” roused its supporters on “combat alert”. Group leader, Dmitry Yarosh called on to protest until the authorities, who, according to the radicals, are guilty of events in Mukachevo are arrested.

Transcarpathia is ready to open a second front with 15,000 people

Transcarpathia is the second front in the fight for decentralization of power in Ukraine, along with Donetsk and Lugansk, said at a press conference in Rostov-on-Don the Prime Minister of Subcarpathian Rus Peter Getsko.

“Transcarpathia is the second hot spot, along with the South-East – Novorossia. If Donetsk and Lugansk went on the path of confrontation, Rusyns for many years have been on the path of a peaceful resolution of problems. We cannot say that we have not made progress on this path. We had no military clashes, but we are ready to produce 15 thousand people against the Ukrainian military and the Right Sector. They will easily be able to block mountain passes and to take power in the region. The other thing is that, given the sad experience of Donetsk and Transnistria, the Republic may end up isolated. Therefore, we seek solutions with political and diplomatic means,” – said Peter Getsko.

According to the leader of the unrecognized Republic, representatives of the Rusyn national movement, in addition to brotherly Russia, have contacts with authorities and politicians in Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Romania. On November 25 the issue of Transcarpathian Rusins was heard at the Romanian Parliament, and on December 2  the European Parliament held a round table devoted to the relations between Russia, Ukraine and the EU, where a significant portion of time was devoted to discussing problems of Rusyns.

In Transcarpathia representatives of the Rusyn movement and other opposition leaders are persecuted as “separatists”. On November 13 three elderly activists were subjected to searches and interrogations. In Mukachevo the editor of the opposition newspaper “Workers’ and Peasants ‘ Truth” Anatoly Mayevsky was detained.

“We do not advocate secession from Ukraine, we are for a united Ukraine, but against the unitary structure of the country. We believe that our Republic should receive an independent status within a Confederation,” – stressed Peter Getsko.

The leader of the unrecognized Republic expressed hope that with the support of Russia and European countries Transcarpathia will be able to peacefully achieve recognition and independence, although with repression of activists “Kiev is pushing Rusyns to a military option of confrontation”.
