"The operational headquarters of the Right Sector for the blockade has decided that due to the fact that our partners have allowed to transmit electricity and virtually eliminated us from decision-making, we are changing the format of our presence on the border with Crimea. We will no longer take part in the Crimean Maidan, block roads, and be present at checkpoints. We have completed our participation in the blockade of Crimea," said Oleksiy Byk.

However, he added that does not exclude renewing participation in the blockade of the occupied peninsula, "but it requires additional coordination, negotiation, and change to the format of relations within the framework of the blockade," said the spokesman of the Right Sector.
