KIEV, July 17. /TASS/. Military have been brought into Mukachevo, Ukraine’s southwestern Transcarpathian Region, where confrontation of police and militants from the extremist group Right Sector has continued for already a week, the Ukrainian UNN news agency reports referring to law enforcement sources.
On Friday, the Ukrainian Security Council prepared a decision on the start of an antiterrorist operation in the region.
In developments of Saturday, July 11, in the city of Mukachevo, some 20 militants of the Right Sector extremist organization opened fire from small arms during a conflict with their opponents with whom they discussed "distribution of influence areas".
The extremists then opened fire from assault rifles, heavy machineguns and grenade launchers at police officers who arrived at the site, destroyed several police vehicles, as well as set on fire a traffic police checkpoint and a filling station. Three people were killed, and another 11 were wounded. Prosecutors classified what happened in Mukachevo as a terrorist attack.
The Ukrainian General Prosecutor’s Office reports that 12 members of the Right Sector participating in the conflict have been identified, four of them detained. The whereabouts of six people are still not known. Search for them continues.
In November 2014, the Russian Supreme Court outlawed the Right Sector as an extremist organization.
