Ukrainian elite police shot dead a far-right nationalist leader in the western city of Rivne in a shootout that erupted during a raid to arrest him, the government said Tuesday.
Oleksandr Muzytchko, better known as "Sashko Bilyi", the head of Pravy Sektor (Right Sector) in western Ukraine, opened fire first, deputy interior minister Volodymyr Evdokimov said.
The gunfight broke out at a cafe on Monday night when the "Sokol" special forces went in to arrest Muytchko, who had been wanted for organised crime, Evdokimov said.
Reacting to Muzytchko's death, Yarosh demanded the sacking of Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and the arrest of the commander of the "Sokol" forces behind the operation.
At a news conference, Yarosh denounced "the counter-revolutionary" moves against the pro-European movement that ousted Yanukovych, and against the "vanguard of the revolution, Pravy Sektor".
He accused Russia's FSB security service of being behind the operations.

SWAT teams killing political opposition?
No wonder Obama isn’t stepping in.
Put in is playing chess and we aren’t even playing.
Remember the plan crash that decapitated the polish government?
Murky story. The new Interior Minister of Ukraine is hell-bent on disarming civilians, starting from organized groups that can offer actual resistance to Russian occupation. Mighty suspicious, IMHO.
Is this confirmed?
This is the guy who ran about a third of the Maidan Square ‘self-defense’ volunteers.
He’s also the guy who was brandishing an AK (or AKM) in a room full of the new government’s appointed Ministers.
Expect a mafia war to erupt.
The crash happened days after Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin became the first Russian leader to join Polish officials in commemorating the 1940 massacre at Katyn Woods, a wound that has festered between the two countries for decades and to Poles was a symbol of Russian domination
We have many Ukrainians coming here. They come for jobs...and freedom.
Assuming this is true, what an evil guy, out bidding Obama and the EUroRats in their own game, and then rewarding loyalty while punishing disloyalty, as opposed to Obama EUroRat actions.
Mighty Progressive Socialist Neo-Con Fascista Homophile, all right.
Some of us warned that things were not as they seemed.
“We have many Ukrainians coming here. They come for jobs...and freedom.”
Where would they go to look for a citrus grove, Siberia?
And Putin learned how from studying them, icing on the cake.
Seems like no matter what we do these days we’re determined to spend lots and lose more.
You're missing the point....The Ukraine stinks. Their leaders have dug the country into a hole.
I didn’t miss the point, I just think people who come to this country looking for freedom are living in the past. I don’t know where they should go to find freedom but it is no longer the USA, of that there can be little doubt. They may find something here that is NOT AS BAD as Ukraine but then being bit by a Copperhead is NOT AS BAD as being bitten by an Eastern Diamondback.
It was a falling out among thieves, nothing more.
The reason Ukraine is in the mess it is in is because of plundering by Russians and abandonment by the West.
