Yarosh denies withdrawal of Right Sector from ATO zone
Leader of the Right Sector organization Dmytro Yarosh has denied information regarding the withdrawal of the Right Sector soldiers from their combat positions in the Donbas conflict zone.
"Any information on the redeployment of the Right Sector battalions is false. The personnel are at the bases and performing combat missions in accordance with their responsibility, defending the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the state," he wrote on Facebook on Monday.
Yarosh asks "to ignore spoof stories that are being spread to discredit the Right Sector and are provoking Ukrainians into bloodshed."
As UNIAN reported earlier, the commander of the Right Sector's fifth battalion, nom de guerre Chorniy, said that the soldiers had left their positions in Donbas by order of Yarosh.
