Members of Ukrainian volunteer battalion “Aidar”, “Azov”, the OUN and “Tornado” joined protests of the “Right Sector” in Kiev, reported RIA Novosti on Monday, July 13, with reference to the TV channel “112 Ukraine”.

“There is already a field kitchen, boxes, money collection to replenish the food reserves”, — RIA Agency quoted the TV report.

On July 11 members of the “Right sector” declared indefinite protest in Kiev near the building of the presidential administration. The protesters said that they will not stop the protest until the dismissal of the interior minister of Ukraine Arsen Avakov and the leadership of the Department of Internal Affairs in the Transcarpathian region.

“Right sector” is an informal alliance of extremist nationalist organizations in Ukraine. Formed in the course of events on the Maidan in late 2013 — early 2014. From April 2014 participated as a separate armed force to suppress the protests in Eastern Ukraine.

In November 2014, the Supreme court of Russian Federation declared it an extremist organization and banned its activities on the territory of Russia. In January 2015, the “Right sector” was listed in the register of organizations prohibited in the Russian Federation.

Volunteer units were created in April-June 2014 in Ukraine. After that, they became part of the National guard (subordinate to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine).

KR: Naturally the most infamous neo-Nazi/criminal battalions (as acknowledged even by the US congress), which rocked the ATO zone with the war crimes against civilians, side with their own kind.
