KIEV, February 13. /TASS/. Ukraine's radical nationalist Right Sector organization doesn't recognize the agreements reached in Minsk and will continue combat actions, the organization's leader Dmytro Yarosh said on his Facebook.
According to Yarosh, the agreements contradict Ukraine's constitution.
The Right Sector group played a leading role in the Maidan anti-government protests in downtown Kiev. The 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.
Earlier on Friday a former deputy commander of the Azov paramilitary battalion, which remains beyond the control of the central command in Kiev, currently holding a seat in the Ukrainian parliament has vowed to defy the Minsk Accords. Igor Moseichuk said on his page in Facebook he would exert the maximum efforts to upset the implementation of these agreements in parliament.
"That’s an act of treason. Betrayal of national interests. This is the sole way of describing the text regarding the implementation of the Minsk Accords that Leonid Kuchma signed with the Donetsk and Luhansk republics on behalf of Ukraine," says the radically-minded legislator.
At the moment the battalion Azov is based in Mariupol. Over recent days it has tried to attack the militias’ positions near the village of Shirokino. Taking part in the military operation in Donbass are quite a few detachments not subordinate to the authorities in Kiev, such as Right Sector detachments and the battalion Aidar.
