    The radical organization is going to create so-called volunteer battalions in three Ukrainian regions. Such battalions are known for committing mass crimes, including the suppression of protests in the Donbass region.

    The radical Ukrainian organization "Right Sector" announced the creation of new volunteer battalions in three Ukrainian regions: Chernihiv, Sumy and Kirovograd, according to Ukrainian newspaper "Vesti".

    The newspaper refers to a corresponding order of commander of the Ukrainian volunteer corps Andrei Stempitsky.

    The so-called volunteer battalions are privately financed, designed to fight against the Donbass militia and are notorious for committing mass crimes.

    "Right Sector" is a far-right radical nationalist party. Its members participated in clashes with the police and the seizure of administrative buildings during the Maidan events in January and February 2014, and took part in the suppression of protests in eastern Ukraine in April 2014. The association is registered on the list of banned organizations in Russia.
