Letter to the President of Ukraine from the Right Sector military political movement


War in Donbas

By Dmytro Yarosh & Andriy Stempitskyy

Currently, along with the open aggression of Russia, an internal counterrevolution has intensified. At its vanguard are revanchist forces in the Interior Ministry, including those at the highest posts. The head of the bandit-militia group is the separatist enabler and Moscow collaborator General Yevdokimov. It is he and his followers who are doing everything possible to destroy the gains of our Revolution and pave the way for separatist and terrorist groups in Kyiv.

An example of his violent anti-Ukrainian activities are the constant attempts to destroy the Ukrainian volunteer movement, which is essentially at the vanguard of the Revolution, and now the national liberation war, Right Sector.  Starting with the destruction of our colleague Oleksandr Muzychka up to the recent developments in Striy, Dnipropetrovsk, Kyiv and other cities, there is a methodical game from the side of the police, playing into the hands of the separatists and Moscow. Surrendering Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk, thousands are moving to the side of the enemy, while at the same time receiving a salary from the state. Pencil-pushing police rats are fighting those participating as combatants in the war throughout Ukraine.

In recent weeks, illegal police detentions, arrests, beatings, searches, seizure of weapons gained in combat, have affected dozens of volunteer fighters of the Right Sector Ukrainian Corps. Knowing that the vast majority of the Right Sector combatants are battling uncompromisingly, and at the forefront, those who opposed us on Hrushevskoho and Institututska [streets] felt their impunity and have started counterattacking.

In this regard, we appeal to the President of Ukraine Poroshenko, calling on him to immediately bring order to the Interior Ministry, to dismiss notorious representatives of anti-Ukrainian forces from positions within the Interior Ministry and to investigate their criminal activities.

Also we demand the release of all detainees, and the closing of all criminal proceedings against the soldiers of the Ukrainian Volunteer Right Sector Corps and other volunteer units and the return of all illegally seized weapons and transport in the war zone.

In case of failure to meet our demands within 48 hours, we will have to withdraw all our forces from the front lines, to declare a general mobilization of reserve battalions and to start a campaign in Kyiv for the purpose of rapid reform in the Interior Ministry. The advancing columns of the Right Sector will be going in full gear.

We appeal to our brothers fighting with other volunteer divisions and units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as to all the activists of the revolutionary Maidan with a call to support our demands and to finally bring order to the Interior Ministry.

Let’s get rid of those accessories of terrorists who are in police uniforms from Ukrainian land!

Glory to the Nation! Death to the enemy!

Dmytro Yarosh is the leader of the Right Sector and Andriy Stempitskyy, Commander of the Ukrainian Volunteer Corps
