Today on Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kyiv a Viche [people’s assembly] was held on the matter of the counter-revolutionary actions of Interior Minister Arsen Avakov. The main reason for the assembly was the brutal murder of Oleksandr Muzychko, a representative of the Right Sector.
The rally was attended by several thousand people from various organizations, including activists of Maidan, Automaidan, the self-defense, Right Sector, and other organizations.
The rally aimed to demand an urgent lustration of the law enforcement agencies, a just punishment for those guilty of the tragedy on Hrushevskiy and Institutska Str, and resignation of Interior Minister A.Avakov. Maidan’s Viche decided to take the initiative into their own hands, and Right Sector, being the vanguard of the national Revolution, supported the will of the people. Right Sector declares that the picketing of Verkhovna Rada was a precautionary action.
Right Sector opposes seizing the building of Verkhovna Rada. During these events, Right Sector activists held back people that were indignated by the lawless actions of Minister Avakov.
