KIEV, July 15 /TASS/. A Kiev court has arrested two extremists from Ukraine’s radical Right Sector group over the recent shooting in Mukachevo, a city in Western Ukraine, the Right Sector’s press service reported on Wednesday.
"Two court hearings have been held. The court ordered to take the young men into custody until September 11," the Right Sector said in its press release.
Criminal charges have been brought against two Right Sector radicals accused of creating a criminal organization and staging a terrorist attack by a group of persons acting on previous concert.
"The lawyers are preparing an appeal," the press release said.
About 20 militants of the Right Sector militant organization opened fire from small arms against their opponents, with whom they were distributing spheres of influence, in Mukachevo last Saturday, July 11. The extremists used submachine guns, large-caliber machine guns and grenade launchers to put up resistance to policemen who had arrived at the scene. They destroyed several police cars and set a traffic police post and a petrol station on fire.
According to prosecutors of Ukraine’s Trans-Carpathian region, 3 people were killed and another 11 were wounded in the Mukachevo shooting. The prosecutors have classified the incident as a terrorist attack.
Earlier, Ukrainian law enforcers reported the detention of four people, two of whom are staying in hospital in Kiev.
