Ukraine’s Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh said his radical movement rejects the Minsk peace deal and that their paramilitary units in eastern Ukraine will continue “active fighting” according to their “own plans.”

The notorious ultranationalist leader published a statement on his Facebook page Friday, saying that his radical Right Sector movement doesn’t recognize the peace deal, signed by the so-called ‘contact group’ on Thursday and agreed upon by Ukraine, France, Germany and Russia after epic 16-hour talks.

Yarosh claimed that any agreement with the eastern militia, whom he calls “terrorists,” has no legal force.

In his statement, Yarosh claimed that that the Minsk deal is contrary to Ukraine’s constitution, so Ukrainian citizens are not obliged to abide by it. Thus if the army receives orders to cease military activity and withdraw heavy weaponry from the eastern regions, the Right Sector paramilitaries, who are also fighting there “reserve the right” to continue the war, he said.

The Right Sector paramilitary organization continues to deploy its combat and reserve units, to train and logistically support personnel, while coordinating its activities with the military command of the Ukrainian army, paramilitary units of the Defense Ministry and the Interior Ministry, he said.

The breakthrough Minsk agreement was reached on Thursday following marathon overnight negotiations between Ukraine, France, Germany and Russia, and offer hope the fighting in Eastern Ukraine may come to an end. The talks were part of a Franco-German initiative. President Francois Hollande and Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Kiev and Moscow before meeting the Russian and Ukrainian leaders at the negotiating table in Minsk.

Bluntly rejecting the German and French initiative, Yarosh said President Petro Poroshenko should have turned to the US or UK which “observe a consistent anti-Kremlin policy.”

In January, Russia’s Supreme Court banned the activities of the Right Sector within the country. In July last year the Interpol put Right Sector leader Yarosh on its wanted list.

The radical movement was formed as a coalition of nationalist and neo-Nazi organizations during the Maidan protests in Kiev at the end of 2013.

    I think CNN had it right when it referred to “pro-American” forces. This idiot pretty much stated whose pockets he is in. He also pretty much Isolated himself from the protection of the Ukrainian government. I see one of a couple things happening: Yarosh ends up in the cross hairs of a sniper scope, or the Ukrainian regular army commanders turn their forces loose on Right Sector and other like minded forces.

    There is already dissent and breaks in the unity of the Ukrainian Parliament, and the senior leadership in the Ukrainian armed forces has already demonstrated their propensity to break from the official story line. Also the recently exposed Vanguard Mercenaries and CIA operatives acting as third parties, breaking the cease fire protocols and continuing the “they did it” bickering back and forth to create distrust and prevent a unified cease to the hostilities, is becoming obvious to both sides. With that in mind would it be a stretch to see the “rebels” and the Ukraine Army actually join forces to eradicate the Neo Nazi threat once and for all? Could they possibly work together to implement a coup, and completely revamp the Ukrainian political scene once again, this time with the true will of the people in mind, and reject the political manipulations of the western powers? My hope lies along these very lines, because it holds a very real possibility. Do not forget that while the politicians who start the wars lounge peacefully in bed at night, the people fighting these wars face the reality of political will, and often develop a deep respect for their opponent, often coming to understand their (opponents) point of view. These commanders, on both sides, will remember the Ukraine before the west’s interference, and question the motivation behind the conflict. It’s just a matter of time before those fighting the war work together to end it.
