MOSCOW, March 01, /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has commented on Ukrainian far-right group Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh’s appeal to Chechen warlord Doku Umarov to take up arms and support anti-Russian forces in Ukraine.
“Ukrainian neo-fascist Yarosh has sought the help of terrorist Umarov. Does the West put its bets on such ‘democrats’ in Ukraine? Will there be a reaction from there [the West]?” the Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and the rule of law Konstantin Dolgov wrote on Twitter on Saturday, March 1.
Yarosh wrote on his group’s VKontankte page earlier in the day: “Ukrainians have always supported the liberation struggle of the Chechen and other Caucasian peoples. Now it’s the time for you to support Ukraine. As the Right Sector leader I urge you to step up the fight. Russia is not as strong as it seems.”
During the first Chechen war, Yarosh was fighting against Russian troops in Chechnya on the side of its separatist forces.
