In Tyachev district, Transcarpathian region of Ukraine, Ukrainian militants fired at the house of the head of the World Council of Subcarpathian Rusyns and the home of his deputy, told “Rusvesna” the online coordinator of the Rusyn movement, Peter Getsko. He added that the Ukrainian media is silent about this, and the authorities are not investigating the crimes, calling Rusyn separatists.

Rusyns link the attack to the activation of the Ukrainian neo-Nazis in Transcarpathia after Mukachevo events.

“If this continues on, then we will have to defend our families with arms”, — said the coordinator of the Rusyn movement.

Also Getsko added that in the spring, searches were conducted at homes of the leadership of the World Council of Subcarpathian Rusyns. Security forces inspected the homes, found nothing illegal and still did not explain the reasons.

The situation in the region remains tense, yesterday, the national guard continued the operation on blocking of militant nationalists.

Later, an airstrike was launched on the militants of the “Right sector”.
