Ministers of parliament in Ukraine who are members of the Neo-Nazi Svoboda party have assaulted the CEO of the state television channel, forcing him to sit at his desk and sign a letter of resignation. The incident is the latest power play by the Neo-Nazis in Ukraine, who have emerged as a dominant force in the new coalition government. The Neo-Nazi parties seem to be sending a message that opposition and those who offend them will be met with naked force . The Svoboda ministers were angry that the television station ran footage of Russian President Vladimir Putin announcing that Crimea would become part of the Russian Federation.
