KIEV, July 21 /TASS/. The Right Sector extremist movement has threatened the Ukraine authorities with parallel elections, Right Sector’s leader Dmytro Yarosh said on Tuesday after an All-Ukrainian Congress of the Right Sector movement held in Kiev.
"The authorities should know that if they do not suit the people, they should go. If we fail to call a referendum, we are going to create our own Central Electoral Commission and vote separately across Ukraine," Yarosh said.
"We can judge whom the authorities fear most and whom they consider to be the main enemy by what forces President Poroshenko mobilized to crack down on several Right Sector fighters near Mukachevo (Western Ukraine): dozens of vehicles and hundreds of Interior Ministry officers; riot police, the National Guard as well as some Ukrainian army units," the Right Sector, which is banned in Russia as an extremist organization, said in a statement released on Tuesday.
Some time ago, Yarosh said that time had come to think about Poroshenko’s resignation and the disbandment of the government and Verkhovna Rada (parliament).
US Ambassador to Ukraine Jeoffrey Pyatt, who visited Uzhgorod, Western Ukraine, on Tuesday condemned the Right Sector’s actions in Ukraine’s Transcarpathian region and said that the use of force and weapons was the prerogative of the Ukrainian government, army and law enforcers.
