KIEV, July 29. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Security Service has opened seven criminal cases on the armed conflict in Mukachevo (western Trancarpathia) region, in which radicals of Right Sector were involved, aide to the authority’s head Yuri Tandit said in an interview with Ukraine’s 5 Channel.
"At the time of the disorders, head of the Security Service Vasily Gritsak guaranteed the investigation would be open and honest," he said. "We guaranteed safety for four people, who were detained and who are in Kiev now. The criminal investigation is made here in compliance with the legislation."
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 on July 11.
The extremists used submachine guns, large-calibre 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, 4 people were killed and another 10 were wounded in the Mukachevo shooting. The prosecutors have classified the incident as a terrorist attack.
Six radicals of Right Sector have been accused of terrorism and organization of a criminal group. Four of them are in custody.
Russia has recognized Right Sector as an extremist organization, which is banned in the country.
