The police have cleared a small apartment house (Schewchenko street, Lvov) in a hurry after tenants had noticed that strangers were lurking in the basement and several cellar doors stood open. During the inspection a primed mine with cable release was discovered – it could’ve gone off at any time. The local police has evacuated over 40 residents. A team of deminers has been sent to defuse the mine.

Yesterday about 6.000 supporters of the ultranationalist “Right Sector” gathered on Maidan square in Kiev and called for a “new stage of Ukrainian revolution”, as Dmitry Yarosh put it. The protesters called on government officials, especially Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, to resign and shouted “death to enemies”, RT reports by referring to TASS. The threats seem to be serious as Right Sector played a huge role in the US-backed Maidan uprising last year and their politically motivated murders continue to be carried out.

Right Sector is using the bad economic and social situation in Western Ukraine to call for no-confidence and martial law votes to win over the population to their side of the bloody power struggle in Ukraine. Speaking on the rally, visited by many Right Sector supporters in camouflaged uniforms, leader Dmitry Yarosh said the group intended to be “showing that [it is] a disciplined revolutionary force.” Although the rally was peaceful, Right Sector made its intentions very clear: peaceful take-over or revolution.

We saw last year what kind of revolution the Right Sector probably has in mind: a neo-fascist, nationalist, racist uprising, in which “separatists”, other political opponents (especially communists), ethnic Russians and other minorities are subjected to systematic discrimination and murders like the Odessa massacre (which left up to 150 people dead, further investigation systematically hindered by the Ukrainian government) can go unpunished.

As the situation sharpens, the political situation in Western Ukraine continues to be worrying.

Today 100 armored vehicles of the US Army (Humvees) arrived in Odessa via ship, which were delivered to the Kiev government. Previously, the Pentagon chief Ashton Carter and the Ukrainian Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak had discussed how they could provide “US assistance to Ukraine in terms of safety”.

“The Vice President […] reiterated the U.S. position in full support of the approaches of Ukraine for further settlement of the situation in Donbass“, Sputnik cites Poroshenko’s website.

“Another 100 Humvees” – This promise was fulfilled today by US Vice President Joseph Biden with the supply of 100 Humvees to Odessa. It is part of a larger, long-term military cooperation of the USA with the Ukrainian government.
