KIEV, March 6. /ITAR-TASS/. The appointed by Verkhovna Rada Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has signed an order to dismiss three deputies of Ukraine’s defense minister as they opposed to giving the Right Sector militants the status of regular military units. A source in the Ukrainian government said this to Itar-Tass. “Yatsenyuk dismissed first deputy defense minister Alexander Oleynik,” the source specified. “Deputies defense minister Vladimir Mozharovskiy and Arturo Francisco Babenko were also dismissed.”

The source added that on Wednesday, at a closed session of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry the military officials expressed sharp criticism over giving the Right Sector militants the status of regular military units. “They stated that the legal adoption of this initiative would lead to a final split of the society and the country, and bring chaos into the operations of the state’s security agencies,” the source said.

He also said that “one of these military officials at this session directly told Arseniy Yatsenyuk that actions of today’s Kiev authorities that overtures with radical nationalist organization strip Ukraine of chances to ensure national unity, and it is just harmful to involve the state military agency in such dangerous games”.

“In this situation, the authorities were forced to make the corresponding management reshuffles. And they were implemented,” the source added, recalling that Petro Mekhed has been appointed as the new deputy defense minister.
