UPR calls upon all deputies to pass a motion of censure against the French government for its aid to Ukraine.

Dimitry Yarosh, head of the paramilitary neo-nazi Ukrainian militia “Right Sector,” and terrorist wanted by Interpol, is nevertheless embraced and financed by the Ukrainian state, thus, by the EU, thus, by France.

UPR calls upon all deputies to pass a motion of censure immediately against the French government which finances — through its contributions to the EU — the Ukrainian government that hires, arms, and finances neo-nazi militias.

Dimitry Yarosh, 43, head of Pravy Sektor, the neo-nazi paramilitary that fights alongside the Ukrainian army in the separatist pro-russian east, and that has committed numberless exactions, was named Monday, April 6, as adviser to Viktor Muzhenko, commander in chief of the Ukrainian Army.

According to the army spokesman Oleksii Mazera, “Dmitry Yarosh will fill the role of mediator between the volunteer battalions and the commander-in-chief. We intend to be united in the face of the enemy and our objective is the cooperation and integration of the volunteer battalions into the body of the Armed Forces.

A spokesman for Dmitry Yarosh explained that the neo-nazi paramilitary militia Pravy Sektor would remain autonomous, but would yet be “financed by the Ministry of Defense,” specifying “our combatants will henceforth be well-armed. Up till now, it has been up to our volunteers to provide our own equipment.”

The UPR notes that

—> Dmitry Yarosh has brought together several extreme right groups that, while hooded and handling molotov cocktails, attacked security forces during the “Maidan;’

—> The organization “Pravy Sektor” (“Right Wing”) which he founded maintains the pro-nazi ideology of that collaborator of the ‘40s, Stepan Bandera, and makes no secret of its admiration for Adolf Hitler;

—> The Israeli newpaper Haaretz has reported that Pravy Sektor has been distributing fresh translations of “Mein Kampf,” and “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion;

—> Dmitry Yarosh has publicly called for terrorism and extremism, exhorting the anti-russian forces to engage in acts of extremism, and to spread terror in Russian territory;

—> Dmitry Yarosh is the subject of an Interpol arrest warrant since July 25, 2014.

The UPR notes in addition that

—> The president of the European Commission announced the release, January 8, 2015, of 1.8 billion Euros in aid to the Ukrainian government;

—> This aid has no provision for the interdiction of neo-nazi movements within the Ukrainian halls of government;

—> France, contributing roughly one sixth of the European Union budget, thus agrees to pay 300 million Euros to the Kiev government which has just decided to hire the terrorist Dmitry Yarosh onto the staff of the commander-in-chief of the armies, and to finance its anti-semitic and neo-nazi militia.

For the aggregate of these staggering facts, the Union Populaire Republicaine (UPR) solemnly calls upon the French deputies to pass, immediately, a motion of censure against the French government and the government of Prime Minister Manuel Valls.

The UPR will publish the list of those deputies who respond, as well as the content of their response.

The UPR will alike publish the list of deputies who keep silent as to our demand, and thus allow, by forfait, linking France in scandalous alliance and risking an escalation without precedent towards a conflict with Russia, the world’s number two nuclear power.

Another French political party has gone public against French support for Kiev. See
