    Right Sector extremists want Kiev to withdraw from the Minsk peace agreements, LifeNews website reported.

    The militants also want to organize a referendum to impeach all authorities — the parliament, the government and President Petro Poroshenko.

    In addition, the Right Sector demands the official legalization of their volunteer battalions fighting in Donbass.

    Hundreds of Right Sector members are rallying in Kiev this very moment.

    The Right Sector was involved in the violent Maidan protests that resulted in the ousting of former President Viktor Yanukovych. Therefore, it won't a surprise to anyone if the organization decided to overthrow the current president as well.

    On July 11, Right Sector members exchanged fire with local police. The incident left four people killed and 14 injured, including law enforcement officers. The attackers ran away and hid in the mountains.

    Right Sector supporters staged numerous protests across Ukraine, including Kiev, over the Mukachevo shootout. Activists are demanding the resignation of the country's Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and commanding police officers in the Zakarpattia Region.

    Four people with Right Sector insignia have been arrested in the Mukachevo shootout case.
