U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey R. Pyatt said commenting on shootout in Mukacheve during his visit to the Zakarpattia region, Censor.NET reports citing RT.
U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine said that governor of the Zakarpattia region Hennadii Moskal had briefed him on recent developments with the Pravy Sektor (Right Sector).
"How to deal with those groups is of course a matter for the Ukrainian government and the Ukrainian law enforcement in particular. But since I know you will ask about it, let me just say the United States strongly supports the position spelled out by President Poroshenko, Minister of Interior Avakov, and the Oblast governor, that the use of force and weapons must be reserved exclusively to the Ukrainian government and Ukrainian government institutions; and that is a core principle of democratic governance," Geoffrey Pyatt said.
