KIEV, March 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Members of Ukraine’s far-right group Right Sector set up a political party on Saturday, March 22, giving it the same name.
The party was created on the basis of the Ukrainian National Assembly (UNA). “The political party Right Sector has been created on the basis of the Ukrainian National Assembly, which changed its name to Right Sector. The party has also incorporated other nationalist groups which support the Right Sector movement. Dmitry Yarosh has been elected its leader,” UNA representative Andrei Denisenko said.
Oleg Odnorozhtsev of the Right Sector said the reorganisation of the movement into a party “will allow us to act in the political domain.”
Yarosh has been put on the Interpol wanted list. On March 12, Moscow’s Basmanny District Court issued an arrest warrant for him on charges of making terrorist and extremist calls in mass media. Investigators also say that Yarosh publicly calls on anti-Russian forces to get engaged in extremist activities and carry out acts of terror in Russia.
