MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. Leader of Ukraine’s ultra-nationalist Right Sector Dmytro Yarosh will be appointed adviser to the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the 112 television channel said on Sunday, citing the Ukrainian crisis media centre.
"Chief of the General Staff Viktor Muzhenko and the leader of the Ukrainian Volunteer Corps agreed to appoint Dmytro Yarosh adviser to the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. They also squared a format of cooperation between the Volunteer Corps with the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Muzhenko and Yarosh agreed about that at yesterday’s meeting at the General Staff of the Ukrainian army," the TV channel said.
According to the TV channel, Right Sector gunmen, who had earlier fought near Mariupol in eastern Ukraine, said the sector M command had ordered volunteer brigades to leave the settlement of Shirokino before March 27 and to withdraw from the zone of the force operation by April 1. Later, the military said no ultimatums had been presented to volunteer corps. It had been a recommendation to join either the Ukrainian army or the National Guard, they said.
Yarosh said earlier, the Right Sector was ready to be transformed into an attack brigade. Its corps now have about 10,000 gunmen. On April 3, adviser to the Ukrainian president Yuri Biryukov wrote on his Facebook account on Friday that paramilitaries of the Right Sector will be enrolled in Ukraine’s army as contract soldiers. "Right Sector soldiers will be contracted by the 79th air mobile brigade," he wrote.
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.
