"Eternal glory and honor to warriors of the Ukrainian Right Sector Volunteer Corps! Look at these guys, all those who have said today that no one had been killed and that it was a fake, lies and strange games – Oleksandr Motuzianyk, look. Defense Ministry speechwriters who claim that no one had died – you look too. The journalists who deliberately, on orders from above, did not report or ignored this – look too. And let their faces stand in front of your eyes as a reminder that there are things more important than money and positions," he wrote on Facebook.
