ODESSA, July 20. /TASS/. Extremists from Ukraine’s ultra-right organization Right Sector have failed to installed a checkpoint at the border with the unrecognized republic of Transdniestria, a spokesman for the southern regional department of the Ukrainian State Border Service said on MInday.
"People who called themselves Right Sector activists arrived at the Timkovo checkpoint at the Ukrainian-Moldovan border late on July 17. They offered their help to border officers to protect the border and counteract contraband. The checkpoint’s commander recommended them to ask permission from a superior body. After that, they unfolded their organization’s flags, took photos with these flags on the backdrop of the checkpoint and left," the spokesman said.
Right Sector representatives however said Ukrainian customs and border officers "were positive about cooperation" with the organization.
Right Sector was behind a contraband-related scandal in Ukraine’s western Trans-Carpathian region. On Saturday, July 11, gunmen of the Right Sector extremist group, which is banned in Russia, opened fire from small arms on their opponents while discussing the "redistribution of spheres of influence" in Mukachevo. The extremists later opened fire from rifles, heavy machine guns and grenade launchers on police who arrived at the scene. They destroyed several police vehicles and also set on fire a traffic police checkpoint and a petrol station. As a result, three persons were killed and 11 more were wounded. The Right Sector gunmen escaped to the mountains. Prosecutors described the incident as a terrorist attack.
