Kalashnikov-wielding members of Ukraine's radical nationalist opposition group, Right Sector, have pledged to resort to arms in their fight against those involved in "lawlessness" and looting, saying they will shoot to restore "order and discipline."
"I warn you, if anyone in this town, this area, engages in 'lawlessness' and looting, Right Sector squads will shoot the bastards on the spot. Then there will be order and discipline," one of the radical nationalist opposition group leaders, Aleksandr Muzychko, said on Friday.
On February 21, when Berkut police officers arrived in the western Ukrainian town of Rovno from Kiev, Muzychko said that if he met them on a battlefield, his hand "would not tremble."
"I would shoot," the Right Sector leader declared in Rovno, where his supporters have already equipped themselves with Kalashnikov rifles.
"If tomorrow these bastards [police] in Kiev won't stop, we'll take over military units, get hold of armored personnel carriers and tanks - we know how to operate them - and go to Kiev. Victory will be ours," Muzychko warned earlier this week.
Aleksandr Muzychko is a notorious nationalist leader. Back in 2007 he pledged to fight against "communists, Jews and Russians for as long as blood flows in his veins," openly saying that leading the fight against all of the above mentioned groups is his "credo."

This isn’t going to end well. Not at all.
Fighting Poles too like their "hero", Stepan Bandera.
Forget about it Jake, its the Ukraine...
Question: Were George Soros Open Society Institute, Freedom house, NED, USAID involved in the coup?
If so then how are Ukrainians more “free” now to be dominated by the EU and Soros?
Um, I think Russia Today may be a tad biased as a pro-Putin outfit.
Things look pretty orderly to me, now that Yanukovych has fled the scene, and his goons have stopped shooting people. Have a watch, center video screen:
It is owned by Russian government.
Things looked pretty orderly in Berlin during the 1930s, what's your point?
Nice to see the FSB chiming in with their usual tired accusations...”Yer all Nazis! Now get back to work and pay your bribes!”
RT is just the Kremlin channel for outsiders...nobody in Russia watches it
Interestingly enough even pro-opposition newspapers are reporting on these ultra-nat groups forming part of the protesters. The strange thing, though, is that whereas a lot of anti-immigration parties in Western Europe are smeared with the epithet “neo-nazi”, this is nowhere to be found in the reports from Kiev.
Egypt, Libya, Syria, Ukraine - the EU soft power and the foreign policy of the peace prize winner winning laurels time and time again.
Except Mubarak was not on Putin’s payroll. Yanukovich interrupted the negotiations with the opposition to take the call from Putin in which he was ordered to stand down. Any option for the Ukrainian people is better than having Putin’s thugs running the country.
Just like in Syria and Egypt, another situation where both sides are lacking in clean hands. The smart move is to manipulate all these situations toward what is good for US, but that would be something the State Department would pick last as one of its options. For example, in regards to Syria, we maintain the war as a stalemate, but place the blame on Russia and China. Get the Sunni fanatics all riled up at Moscow and Peking. Since they did nothing to help us with these maniacs in the past, we redirect them toward them.
The label “right-wing” is used for those groups the leftist media don’t like, t doesn’t mean they are anything remotely like the “right-wing” in the US
Considering the source - Russia Today - this peace is nothing more than Kremlin propaganda. It lost all credibility when it reported looting in Lviv using pictures from 2009 Moldova. Shame to those who report it, pity for those that believe it.
And judging from how the media has treated these “right-wing” groups it appears the newsies have not yet decided whether to like them or not.
