YouTube comment:  Ukraine's ultra-nationalist Right Sector movement has been extremely active during the Euromaidan protests, but Kiev is now moving to disarm the group.  On Monday, one Right Sector member instigated a shootout outside a restaurant.  Three people were injured, including a city official.  In response, riot police surrounded the Dnipro Hotel, which the group was using as their headquarters.  The group was forced to vacate the building without their weapons and move to a base outside Kiev.  Simon Ostrovsky of VICE News was there as events unfolded.
