Ukraine Fascist leader killed 'for compromising Kiev', Right Sector pledges revenge
Ukrainian Neo Nazi group Right Sector has announced it holds the acting Interior Minister Arsen Avakov accountable for the death of notorious radical militant Aleksandr Muzychko and will avenge it, Ukrainian media reports
We note this is a death that is lighter than a feather we mourn for comrades in Kharkov gunned down in the street on 14th.15th March who represent the best of humanity not the worst like Aleksandr Muzychko.
Backgrounder on Arsen Avakov :
Arsen Avakov is the new Interior Minister. He started his career as engineer employed by All-Union Scientific-Research Institute on Water Protection (Kharkiv). In 1990 Arsen Avakov founded and headed “Investor” JSC, аnd “Basis” Commercial Bank later in 1992.
In 2002 Avakov was elected a Member of the Executive Committee of Kharkiv City Council.
In 2010 Avakov withdrew from “Our Ukraine” political party headed by the President Viktor Yushchenko and joined “Batkivshchyna” party and accepted the offer of Yulia Tymoshenko to lead the regional organization of “Batkivshchyna” political party.
He was accused of illegal privatization of land and abuse of power in 2012 and was under criminal investigation by the previous government, which forced him to flee to Italy.
Avakov was put on the international wanted list of Interpol and put under house arrest in Italy.
He was elected into parliament later the same year and a following Court ruling made it possible for him to return. His fellow party members said the case was politically motivated.
Radio Free Europe claims he is one of the most authoritative members of Batkivshchyna at the moment, who emerged during the revolution.
Interior minister Avakov stated as one of his first intentions that the Right sector should be integrated into the state security apparatus.
Democrracy and Class Struggle says it looks like this integration has led to internal war with Aleksandr Muzychko and the night of the long knives amongst the Fascists and Nazis.
