Well, it couldn't last. On Sunday, Ukraine's 'acting Interior Minister' from Julia Tymoshenko's Fatherland party, Arsen Avakov, reportedly ordered the assassination of fellow coup plotter Aleksandr Muzychko from the neo-fascist Right Sector party. Muzychko was gunned down in Rovno, Western Ukraine, by police allegedly acting under orders from Tymoshenko's chum Avakov, perhaps with the sanction of the blessed Julia, the favoured candidate of the fragrant and accomplished Catherine Ashton, an unelected EU official.
Further assassinations and tit-for-tat Mafia style retributions are expected as Ukraine's new Failed-State self-appointed government starts to self destruct less than a month after it received the support of the EU, NATO and the US. As billions of IMF and EU money are set to flow into the country, it is suspected that a turf war has broken out over who gets their snouts in the newly refilled trough first.
