KIEV, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Militant nationalists continuing the two-months-long action on Kiev’s Independence Square (Maidan) have gotten down to the formation of what they call a ‘national guard’, a number of Ukrainian television channels doing live coverage from the Maidan and other downtown hotbeds of ‘people’s protest’ said Wednesday.
At the time of reporting, its ranks consisted of activists from the Maidan, Ukrainian Cossacks, and representatives of the Pravy Sektor radical movement. Recruitment to the guard will be open for everyone who will give an oath to serve the Ukrainian nation.
TV reporters said a Council of Commanders of the guard had not been formed yet and the very objectives of the new combatant force were not known either.
