NAZRAN, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. The death of Ukraine’s ultranationalist Oleksandr Muzychko, who was shot overnight in the country’s west, served him right, the leader of Russia’s North Caucasus Republic of Ingushetia said on Tuesday.
Muzychko, also known as Sashko Bily, was killed near a cafe in the western Ukrainian town of Rivne as a result of a special police operation to neutralize a militant group.
“Muzychko was a big time bandit and he eventually got what he deserved,” Yunus-Bek Yevkurov said commenting on the death of Muzychko, who was a coordinator of Ukrainian far-right movement Right Sector.
“The only unpleasant thing about all this is that television channels broadcast reports about this hoodlum,” he said. “He [Muzychko] was killed and let us forget about him as if he never existed at all.”
Ukrainian First Deputy Interior Minister Vladimir Yevdokimov told a news briefing earlier in the day that Muzychko was killed after he put up an armed resistance as policemen and officers of the Sokol special task unit asked him to surrender.
Muzychko was on the international wanted list on suspicion of committing war atrocities in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Chechnya. The Russian Investigative Committee earlier opened a criminal case against the ultranationalist on charges of taking part in combat actions on the side of Chechen warlords Khattab and Basayev against Russian soldiers.
According to investigators, Muzychko brutally tortured and eventually killed at least 20 Russian soldiers during Russia’s military campaigns in Chechnya between 1994 and 2000.
