Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Alexei Baganets made this statement at a session of interim investigative commission of the Verkhovna Rada that was engaged in investigating the circumstances of Muzychko’s death.
Muzychko’s body with gunshot wounds near the heart was found in the night on March 25 near Barmaki village not far from the city of Rivne. On the same day, the Interior Ministry stated that he was fatally wounded by the servicemen of special task unit Sokol during a raid aimed at his detention in the Rivne region.
Upon results of internal investigation, the Interior Ministry of Ukraine admitted April 2 that the actions of members of the special task unit Sokol during Muzychko’s detention were lawful.
The Right Sector claims that Muzychko “was intentionally shot” by the members of the special task unit Sokol and believe that parliament-appointed Interior Minister Arsen Avakov is guilty. The Right Sector demanded Avakov’s immediate resignation and arrest of everyone involved in the radical’s death.
The movement’s leader Dmytro Yaroch threatened to take vengeance for Muzychko’s death.
March 28, more than 500 people gathered in front of the Verkhovna Rada house demanding to suspend the interior minister. The major part of the rallying was people from the Right Sector. The new Ukrainian authorities call the rally a provocation.
