MOSCOW, January 23 /TASS/. The Russian Justice Ministry has banned the activities of Ukrainian nationalist organizations in the territory of Russia.
The list of non-profit organizations whose activities have either been banned or liquidated by court order include the Right Sector movement; the Ukrainian National Assembly-the Ukrainian People’s Self-Defense /UNA-UNSO/; the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA); the Stepan Bandera All-Ukrainian Organization Trizub as well as the Bratstvo (Brotherhood) movement, the ministry said explaining its decision to blacklist the organizations in question followed a ruling by the Russian Supreme Court passed on November 17, 2014.
The Russian Supreme Court recognized the Ukrainian nationalist organizations to be extremist and banned their activities in Russia at the prosecutor general’s request.
“The extremist activities of the Ukrainian organization in question encroach on the foundations of Russia’s constitutional order and territorial integrity; entail the violation of human rights and civil liberties; cause damage to individuals as well as to citizens; public order and public security. They propagate violence for political, ethnic and religious motives; glorify notoriously,” the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office said in its statement.
Last spring, Russia’s Investigative Committee initiated criminal proceedings against the leaders of the Right Sector and Bratstvo movements, Dmitry Yarosh and Dmitry Korchinsky. Both had publicly called to stepping up an armed struggle against Russia.
