Ukrainian radical nationalist leader Aleksandr Muzychko went on with the rampage against regional authorities, lashing out at a local prosecutor with obscene language, punches and threats. The radical claimed the prosecutors were “sabotaging” their job.
Muzychko, who is a member of the Right Sector radical movement, arrived at Rovno (Rivne) Oblast prosecutor’s office after he heard claims that a criminal investigation into a local murder is being delayed.
The controversial “activist,” known for taking part in the Chechen conflict against Russian troops, for his recent Kalashnikov brandishing in front of regional authorities and for making openly anti-Semitic statements, decided to take the matter into his own hands.
Without going into detail, Muzychko grasped a procedural prosecutor he found present at the workplace, nearly strangling the clerk with his own tie and shouting at him in dirty language.
The prosecutor asked to be given a chance to explain the situation, but the heated radical did not want to hear any explanations.
“Shut the f**k up, you b*tch! Your f**king time is over,” he uttered, threatening to rope the clerk like a dog and lead him to the people on Maidan.
Muzychko was furious to learn the regional prosecutor was not at his workplace because he was “in hospital.” Calling the prosecutors useless “chairwarmers,” he accused them of deliberately shirking their job.
“Does it mean I have to elect my own prosecutor, if these animals do not want to work? What is this, a sabotage? Should we have mayhem, anarchy in the country, they will keep sitting here and covering [the criminals]?”
The clerk tried to intervene in the radical’s speech, but received a slap on the face.
“If you think I am goodie because I’ve come without my rifle, you are gravely mistaken. I’ve come with a pistol. Work!” local paper rivnepost.rv.ua also quoted some of Muzychko’s words that were not caught on film.
According to the paper, the radical threatened that otherwise he will have the clerk lynched by an angry mob.
The confused prosecutor later explained the situation to journalists, saying that Muzychko has probably been “misinformed.” According to the clerk, the suspected murderer of the local woman in question has been kept in detention without any formal charges placed on him only because the investigation was in progress. Now that the police have found some evidence, the charges will be brought against the man.
Meanwhile, the new Ukrainian authorities cast a blind eye on extremist actions of the armed Right Sector apparently in return for the group’s active help in overthrowing the government of ousted president Yanukovich.
Since the start of the turmoil in Ukraine, atrocities committed by the Ukrainian radicals have been routinely dismissed by coup d’état supporters as “propaganda” and mostly ignored by the Western media. However, with people like Muzychko appearing on YouTube, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the new authorities to veil the situation in the country as “peaceful protests.”
