Ukrainian MP Viktor Baloha says that the conflict with the Right Sector in Mukachevo was provoked by law enforcers.

“Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov had a hand in it,” says Baloha, who, in his turn, is suspected of being privy to the Mukachevo incident.

“When the Right Sector fighters were going out of their base, the police did not stop them and let them enter Mukachevo,” says Baloha.  

As EADaily reported earlier, almost 20 extremists of the Right Sector opened fire at the police in Mukachevo, Zakarpattia region, on July 11. They also destroyed several police cars and set on fire a road police office and a gas filling station. Four people were killed, ten people were wounded.

The prosecutor’s office has qualified the incident as an act of terrorism. In Russia, the Right Sector is banned as an extremist organization.
