Right Sector quits Crimea blockade
The operational headquarters of the Right Sector activists of the Crimea blockade has announced they terminate participation in the rally.
"The latest statement of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, which was not coordinated with us and other representatives of public organizations, volunteer battalions and patriotic movements, who are members of the Crimean Maidan led by Lenur Islyamov, is directed to concessions to both external and internal enemies of Ukraine," according to the statement on Facebook.

"Taking into account the recent reaction of the Russian Federation on the results of the Crimea blockade, we see the concentration of a large amount of military equipment and human resources in a short distance from the Ukrainian military checkpoints and activists of the Crimean blockade. Under such circumstances, the Right Sector is stopping its activities in the Crimean Maidan, but our combat units will be aimed at strengthening the Ukrainian military, who are defending Ukrainian frontiers along the demarcation line with the occupied territory of Crimea," the headquarters said.
