Right Sector to continue arming itself if Ukraine situation does not change
The Right Sector intends to continue arming itself unless the situation on the Ukrainian borders and in Kyiv changes, said Ihor Mazur, Right Sector's Kyiv regional leader, according to the 112 Ukraine television channel.
"If the war continues to come to Ukraine, Right Sector will be in the first trenches, it will be defending the Ukrainian state. And a sufficient number of enemies know that," he said on Tuesday.
The weapons available to Right Sector members were either personal and registered, or rented from their friends, Mazur said.
"We did what was expected of us. First of all, I repeat once again, no one issued weapons to us to reclaim them back from us. And the weapons in our hands, most of them were registered, and those that were not were rented from our friends. We have friends who are hunters and have several firearms. We gave them their weapons back. No one was injured with them, no one was killed with them. They were used merely in self defense. They are now held by their owners," he said.
