    On May 14, Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh submitted to the Ukrainian parliament a bill on the Ukrainian volunteer corps. Earlier, he said there is mutual understanding between country’s security forces and the volunteer corps on cooperation.

    Dmitry Yarosh, leader of the Ukrainian nationalist movement Right Sector, has reached an agreement on joint actions at "foreign and domestic fronts" with Nikolai Kokhanivsky, commander of the volunteer battalion of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalist (OUN).

    Yarosh announced the agreement on his Facebook page.

    "I met with command of OUN – Nikolai Kokhanivsky and fellows. We agreed our positions on cooperation at foreign and domestic fronts. So, to the victory! Glory to Ukraine!" he wrote.

    On May 14, Yarosh submitted to the Verkhovna Rada (the Ukrainian parliament) a bill on the Ukrainian volunteer corps. Earlier, he said there is mutual understanding between country’s security forces and the volunteer corps on cooperation.

    According to him, the bills "On the Ukrainian Volunteer Corps" and "On arms" will be brought up for public discussion.

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

    In November 2014, Russia’s Supreme Court blacklisted Right Sector and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (a separate militant wing of OUN) as an extremist organization and banned it in Russia. Earlier, Russia launched a criminal case against Yarosh for public incitement of terrorism.
