KIEV, April 3. /TASS/. Paramilitaries of Ukraine’s ultra-nationalist Right Sector will be enrolled in Ukraine’s army as contract soldiers, Yuri Biryukov, an adviser to the Ukrainian president, wrote in his Facebook account on Friday.
"Right Sector soldiers will be contracted by the 79th air mobile brigade," he wrote.
Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh said earlier that there had been no official proposals for volunteer battalions to join the armed forces of Ukraine. "I have seen proposals only on the Facebook page of (Ukrainian interior minister’s adviser Anton) Gerashchenko," Yarosh said. "Neither the president nor the leadership of the Defense Ministry have voiced such proposals to me," he added, mentioning an idea to offer him the position of adviser to the chief of the country’s General Staff.
"If, in line with the law, we will be subordinated to the defense ministry, naturally, we will be part of this system, but as a separate structure. It will be applicable to logistics, training and other aspects. We will probably organize a separate brigade," he said.
As for the pullout of volunteer battalions from the contact line in Donbas, Yarosh said "volunteer detachments cannot be pulled back as this is fraught with the loss of territory".
The Right Sector is an informal ultra nationalist group that was transformed into a political party in March 2014 on the basis of the Ukrainian National Assembly (UNA-UNSO) party. The Right Sector party was outlawed in Russia as an extremist organization by a Russian Supreme Court ruling.
