Yarosh quits as Right Sector leader
Independent MP, leader of Right Sector Dmytro Yarosh, has announced that he is standing down as leader of the movement.
"I…..lay down my powers as leader of Right Sector National Liberation Movement, though I remain a nationalist, state servant, and revolutionary," he wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.
Yarosh said that ever since he was wounded in battle and started to receive treatment, he trusted some branches of the movement's governance to his close followers who had and continue to have their own opinion on the deployment of the nationalist movement.
Yarosh reported that a conference of the leadership of the Right Sector took place on November 8, during which the initiators and some participants of the congress undertook illegitimate functions, namely by asking Yarosh to once again act as the guide of the Ukrainian nationalist organizations.
Yarosh said he has refused to do so as "he doesn't want to be a wedding general in Right Sector and to lay his responsibility on somebody's shoulders."
