KIEV, March 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Speaker of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada, Oleksandr Turchynov on Friday decried the meeting in front of the Rada building, which the activists of the Right Sector nationalist militant movement had Thursday night.
“Some citizens tried to stage a provocation near the Verkhovna Rada, either knowingly or unknowingly, and I’m thankful to the MPs who thwarted that provocative act,” Turchynov said.
He stressed the legitimacy of parliament as an agency of state power, saying, “There’s only way to replace parliament, and it’s to vote in an election. There is no other way that might involve forcible pressure because it would push the country into a disaster.”
About 2,000 supporters of the Right Sector came to the Rada building Thursday night and demanded a resignation of Arsen Avakov, an interim Interior Minister appointed by the Rada. They held him responsible for Sashko the White’s death of a wound received during the sting operation to detain him.
During the action near the Rada, the participants made several attempts to break into the building
On Friday, more than a thousand Right Sector activists came to the Rada once again insisting on fulfillment of their demands. Representatives of the rightwing organization said, however, they did not have any plans to storm the building.
