Party of Regions supports the Right Sector

Party of Regions supports the Right Sector

Espreso TV has learned from sources inside the Party of Regions that party members have reached an informal decision to support the Right Sector as an organization that can help discredit the new government and be used in publicity campaigns.

The key “lobbyists” from the Party of Regions regarding the killing of Sashko Bilyy (Oleksandr Muzychko) and the registration as presidential candidate of Dmytro Yarosh are Hanna Herman, Vladyslav Lukyanov and Tetyana Lukash, the sister of Olena Lukash.

Thus, as Oleksandr Chernenko, head of the Committee of the Voters of Ukraine, points out on his Facebook page, the main lobbyist for the immediate registration of Yarosh as a presidential candidate is a member of the Central Election Commission — Tetyana, the sister of Olena Lukash, the former justice minister and deputy head of Yanukovych’s administration, who fled immediately after the collapse of the Yanukovych regime.

According to MP Mykola Knyazhytskyy, Party of Regions members Hanna Herman and Vladyslav Lukyanov also support the Right Sector in the parliamentary investigative committee looking into the killing of Oleksandr Muzychko. Knyazhytskyy, a member of the investigative committee, commented on this behavior on his Facebook page:

“Committee members Hanna Herman and Vladyslav Lukyanov, generally supported all the proposals from the Right Sector. Representatives of the Batkivshchyna (Fatherland), Svoboda and UDAR parties proposed conducting a professional investigation into who broke the law, if indeed a law had been broken. In debates, Party of Regions representatives continued to demand the dismissal of Interior Minister Arsen Avakov. Others demanded control over the criminal investigation. The next meeting of the committee is scheduled for Friday morning, April 4, at 10:00 am.” he wrote.

Apparently the Regionals have reached a political decision to support the Right Sector politically as an organization that will discredit the new government and provide material for Russian mass media. However, it is also important to remember that investigative journalist Tetyana Chornovol discovered that hiding among the Right Sector members are members of the security guard of the well-know Regional Yuri Ivanyushchenko.

As reported by Espreso TV, any reduction in Yarosh’s political ambitions means the loss of political shelter for criminal elements in the Right Sector. Those elements fully realize that as long as they remain together, the less likely they are to face imprisonment.
