Ukraine government VS
Right Sector: who is rocking the boat
and for what purpose?
secret that the government of Ukraine has never been happy with the
formation of volunteer battalions in the country. From the very start
of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine it was precisely the volunteer
battalions that had succeeded in slowing the advance of the separatist
gangs and the regular army of the Russian Federation. It would seem
that the government would fully support those citizens who of their own
free will stepped in to defend the country, but in fact the opposite
[W.Z. In assessing the situation in Ukraine back on 25May2014, I
included the following two excerpts:
(7) Svoboda (Oleh
Tyhnybok) and Right Sector (Dmytro
Yarosh) -- It was the young fighters from these two groups,
resisted the violence initiated by the Yanukovych regime. They matched
with violence. Without them Euromaidan would have failed. That is why
demonized and hated so much by the Putin regime and by Putin’s
Furthermore, since they are not part of the political elite and have no
connections to the Oligarchs/Mafia, they are perceived as a threat to
state. Finally, since Russian
crime has spread its tentacles into Western financial and social
they are demonized by corrupted individuals in the West.
(9) Oligarchs to rescue
Ukraine -- The deputies in
the Verkhovna Rada were elected during the 28Oct2012 parliamentary
such that the government they appointed is legal. Nevertheless, people
shocked that the same horse-trading occurred as in the past. They were
shocked when Oligarchs (many of whom are of Jewish ethnic origin) were
appointed as governors of several oblasts in order to “save Ukraine”.
criminals are now in a position to “legalize” themselves and their
wealth by maintaining the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
The volunteers were not
eligible to be awarded military status for their efforts and as a
consequence they did not receive a salary, or subsidies, or any
compensation, and their family could not count on any government
assistance if the breadwinner of the family was killed. Weapons were
not provided for the volunteers (many of them used and still use their
trophy weapons). Losses among the volunteer battalions were generally
not included in official reports. And in separatist captivity the
volunteers were treated much worse than were the soldiers of the
Ukrainian Armed Forces. Still, the number of people willing to fight in
the battalions of the Right Sector, the OUN and Azov only increased.
The volunteer battalions were at the forefront in all the hot spots, at
Donetsk airport, in Pisky, Vodiane, Shyrokine, Saur Mohyla and in
Debaltseve. They were indispensable in large-scale battles. But even
then they were under pressure. The government simply did not provide
them with arms. The conflict seemed to have no end. Any warrior who has
fought for months and months, who has witnessed death, has lost
friends, and has sacrificed so much for the future of his country would
not be satisfied with the empty promises from the government. Whether
the enemy of his country is foreign or domestic, he will fight the
enemy to the end.
The officials who came to power after the Maidan understood this
perfectly well. They realized that sooner or later a new way of life
would begin, and not because a presidential candidate said so but
because that is what the people of Ukraine want. The old government and
oligarchic leadership is incapable of change, though. They are not
happy with the fact that so many people in the country are prepared to
fight for a new way of life. So the government concentrated its efforts
in fighting the patriots who are defending Ukraine instead of fighting
the Russian invaders and the separatists who are killing Ukrainian
citizens in the Donbas, or fighting the corrupt officials and thieves
who have destroyed Ukraine and are continuing to destroy Ukraine even
in a time of war as they shamelessly profit from blood and death.
To this day not a single important case has been
investigated, be it the old corruption schemes of the previous
government, or the mass murder of citizens on the Maidan in January and
February, 2014, not to mention the crimes committed by the Yanukovich
regime. No mention is made of the thousands of victims who were beaten,
injured, and crippled, who were incarcerated for no reason. None of the
notorious murders have been investigated: the murder of Sashko Bilyi,
committed right after the Maidan, the Trade Union Building arson in
Odesa, the murders of the opposition figures which the Russian
misinformation machine immediately used for spinning anti-Ukrainian
propaganda. In the end, not a single high-ranking separatist has been
convicted and put in prison even though the whole country knows who
they are. And at the moment when Europe is ready to turn its back on
Ukraine due to the lack of reforms, the Ukrainian authorities have
no challenge more important than intimidating the volunteer battalions.
The media is already spreading information that the Minsk Agreement
includes provisions in regard to the dissolution of the battalions. And
is it a coincidence that actual efforts to disarm and disband the
volunteer battalions are being launched right after Mr. Poroshenko's
candy factory was seized in Russia by the Russian authorities?
On April 10th of this year  the positions of the volunteer
battalions in Pisky were already surrounded by the soldiers of the
Ukrainian Armed Forces. At that time the soldiers of the Right Sector
had agreed to withdraw rather than to confront the troops. They did
that knowing that the enemies of Ukraine would immediately use this
incident to their advantage. But now, when the battalion isn't involved
in any fighting, why was it necessary to provoke them by surrounding
their base with army units? The question remains open...
OFFICIAL: Why the Right
Sector base is blocked by
Ukrainian regular army?
Published on 29 Apr 2015
The official speaker of Right Sector Artem Skoropadskiy about Right
Sector' base is surrounded and blocked by the Ukrainian regular army
using checkpoints, various military hardware and heavy weaponry.
Ukrainian officials want to disarm the volunteer battalion Right Sector
in order for them to join regular UA army.
Just to remind: the Right Sector is a volunteer battalion that was
formed during Euromaidan and since then is most effective in Ukrainian
resistance against Russian military invasion to Ukraine.
