The leader of the Right Sector movement, Dmytro Yarosh, intends to run for president. The movement will become a party, Andriy Tarasenko, the chairperson of the Kyiv organization Right Sector, told Interfax – Ukraine.

“We are preparing for a congress, where the party will be renamed, and we go to the elections in Kyiv: in all local councils, towns and villages, which means that Dmytro Yarosh will run for president of Ukraine,” he said.He explained that Right Sector decided to resort to politics because they have no intention to fight with those politicians who stood with them on Maidan. “People who are currently in power were standing next to us at the barricades, thus, it does not make sense to fight against them with revolutionary methods,” said Tarasenko. However, Right Sector realizes that, “no power restart has occurred, there was only a change of names of government offices.” According to Tarasenko, the congress in which Right Sector will decide on the establishment of the party, will be held on March 15.
