A member of the "Vikings" neo-Nazi group in the Right Sector during the "Euromaidan" recently repeated on a Ukrainska pravda forum his earlier public admission that he killed two policemen on February 18, 2014 and that his associate, who was deputy leader of the "Vikings," also killed two policemen on the same day from his Nagant revolver. They both served in the Ukrainian Voluntary Corps of the Right Sector during the war in Donbas. These confessions and other evidence of the involvement of the Right Sector in the violent overthrow of the Ukrainian government and in the Maidan massacre continue to be ignored by the government in Ukraine and the Ukrainian and Western media.

Ivan Katchanovski I think that it is unlikely that Open Democracy or other such Western media outlet would now publish such an article because of its content. Open Democracy accepted my article on the involvement of the far right in the Maidan massacre but then did not publish it. Other Western media outlets also refused to publish it. Several correspondents for leading Western media are familiar with my Facebook posts and related research findings on the far right in Ukraine, but they also would not report now about these confessions for similar reasons.
