Turchynov said that the attempt by Right Sector to storm Verkhovna Rada was organized by Russia

Turchynov said that the attempt by Right Sector to storm Verkhovna Rada was organized by Russia

Oleksandr Turchynov, acting President of Ukraine and Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada (VR), believes that yesterday’s attempt to storm the Parliament building was organized by Russia. He pointed out during his speech to the Parliament that he gave the order to dismantle the fence around Parliament, and it is now open to all citizens.

He opined that arrangements will eventually be made for anyone who wants to visit Parliament to do so.

“The fact that Parliament has been opened, that Parliament did not ask for armed protection from the Ministry of the Interior, does not mean that Parliament can be assaulted and humiliated,” he said.

Turchynov said that yesterday, employees of Russian television channels appeared outside the VR just a few minutes before the provocation. He believes that this indicates that this was “an organized provocation, a provocation directed against Ukraine, organized by the aggressors and those who actually today unleashed hostilities against our country.”

As UNIAN reported earlier, on March 27, Verkhovna Rada was picketed by about 1500 Right Sector activists, who demanded the resignation of Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and an investigation into the death of Alexander Muzychko, leader of the Western Ukrainian wing of Right Sector.
