MOSCOW, March 15, 10:24 /ITAR-TASS/. The arrest of neo-Nazi gunmen in Kharkov is expected to mark the beginning of large-scale actions to neutralize and bring extremists to justice, the Russian Foreign Ministry's envoy for human rights, democracy and the rule of law, Konstantin Dolgov, said in his blog on Twitter on Saturday.
Nobody has cancelled Ukraine's international obligations for counteraction against racism, racial discrimination and xenophobia. The obligations must be fulfilled, he noted.
Russian diplomat also said that Bandera structures in Ukraine must be outlawed as those inciting ethnic hatred.
On Saturday morning, the Kharkov region's police chief Anatoly Dmitriyev said the operation to detain Right Sector gunmen, who had opened fire and seized hostages in Kharkov, was completed. About 30 people were detained.
As was earlier reported, two people died and a policeman and one more person were wounded in clashes between Kharkov residents and Right Sector gunmen. Submachine gun fire was opened from the Right Sector headquarters. They also used stun grenades and Molotov coctail bottles.
