KIEV, July 10. /TASS/. The Mukachevo city district court in Ukraine’s southwestern Transcarpathian region has prolonged for two months the arrest of four members of the Right Sector extremist group (banned in Russia) in the Mukachevo shooting case last summer, the 112 Ukraine TV channel has reported.
"The defendants will remain in custody until September 6, 2016," the news report said. "The next court hearing will take place on July 15, it is expected to begin reviewing the merits of the case."
On July 11, 2015, about 20 Right Sector gunmen attacked a cafe in the Mukachevo sports club owned by local lawmaker Mikhail Lanyo. Then the extremists shelled the police officers who arrived at the scene with assault rifles, heavy machine guns and grenade launchers destroying several police cars and set fire to a traffic police checkpoint and a motorway filling station. The attack has left three people dead, ten others were wounded.
The Mukachevo incident was been designated as a terrorist attack. Later Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office said that it had identified 12 Right Sector members who took part in the attack, four of them were detained.
On September 18, 2015, the provisional investigative commission briefed parliament on the investigation into the Mukachevo events. It said that the conflict was provoked to a large extent by actions of the local Interior Ministry officials and the Ukrainian Security Service.
