Grenade Blasted Near Verkhovna Rada In Kiev Ukraine

31 August 2015

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Officer killed as far right clashes with Kiev police

Tuesday 1st September 2015

CLASHES erupted between Kiev police and members of the far-right Svoboda Party yesterday, with one officer being killed by a grenade.

Alongside the even more extreme neonazi Right Sector, Svoboda played a key role in overthrowing the elected Viktor Yanukovych government in 2014 and replacing it with the current regime.

It has also assisted Kiev in its war against anti-fascist resistance in Donbass — but has grown increasingly prone to turning on the authorities when it doesn’t get its way.

Parliament was discussing constitutional reforms that Svoboda opposes when masked thugs carrying sticks and truncheons attacked police outside the building.

Communist Party leader Petro Symonenko said there was “fierce competition” between the “clans” of the far right and noted that they had had tactical disagreements in their joint “dirty war in the Donbass” already.

Perhaps Svoboda was inspired by the violence of their fellow nazis in Heidenau and elsewhere in Germany …

Translated from daily De Volkskrant in the Netherlands:

Third death after riots in Kiev

The violent protests in the Ukrainian capital Kiev on Tuesday killed another two military men. Two members of the National Guard died on Tuesday at the hospital from injuries they had sustained a day earlier when a grenade exploded in clashes between protesters and riot police. On Monday also a soldier had died.

September 1, 2015, 12:03

About 130 people are still in hospital, five of them critically injured. Eighteen people arrested on Monday were still in custody on Tuesday.

The riots broke out after the parliament voted for a bill which provides more independence to the regions that are in the hands of the pro-Russian rebels.

Supporters of ultra-nationalist parties like Pravy Sektor (Right Sector) and Svoboda (Freedom) then tried to storm the parliament building, but encountered a hedge of members of the National Guard. They attacked the guards with bottles and stones and beat them with clubs. The leader of Svoboda, Oleh Tjahnibok, also took part in the fighting. Earlier, he had vainly tried to sabotage the vote in parliament, along with the ultra-nationalist deputy Oleh Lyashko.
