LUHANSK, December 19. /TASS/. A gunman of Ukraine’s nationalist Right Sector group has been detained in the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) on suspicion of plotting a terrorist attack in downtown Luhansk, the LPR's Ministry of State Security said on Friday.
An underground center of radicals was based in one of apartments in the city. Explosives were installed along a perimeter of the building’s basement. Bomb disposal experts have already cleared the area.
In the apartment, officers found Kalashnikov guns, ammunition, grenades and igniters for them, as well as extremist literature and leaflets calling on local citizens to support the Right Sector.
The Right Sector group played a leading role in the Maidan anti-government protests in downtown Kiev. A key figure in the movement, Dmytro Yarosh, won a parliament seat in the October parliamentary election.
In mid-November, Russia’s Supreme Court declared the Right Sector an extremist organization and banned its activity in Russia. Russian investigators earlier said they had irrefutable evidence implicating members of the Right Sector group in mass killings of civilians in eastern Ukraine.
