Russian Roulette: The Invasion of Ukraine

Kiev moves to disarm Ukraine's ultra-nationalist Right Sector movement.

Ukraine's ultra-nationalist Right Sector movement has been extremely active during the Euromaidan protests, but Kiev is now moving to disarm the group. On Monday the 31st of March, one Right Sector member instigated a shoot-out outside a restaurant. Three people were injured, including a city official.

In response, riot police surrounded the Dnipro Hotel, which the group was using as its headquarters. The group was forced to vacate the building without its weapons and move to a base outside Kiev. Simon Ostrovsky of VICE News was there as the events unfolded.
