    There is a new Maidan “revolution” now in the making in Ukraine, the head of the State Duma’s foreign affairs committee warned on Tuesday.

    “They are plotting a new ‘revolution’ in Kiev and Dmytro Yarosh is ready to give his fellow Ukrainians a set of new guidelines for revolutionary changes in the country,” Alexei Pushkov wrote on his Twitter account.

    In a comment posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday Dmytro Yarosh, the leader of the Right Sector ultranationalist group, banned in Russia, wrote that “the old-new team of the president, the government and parliament,  now at the helm in Kiev, is unable to implement much-needed social reforms.”

    Hundreds of Ukrainian right-wingers rallied in Kiev on Tuesday to protest against government policies in the wake of a deadly stand-off between radical nationalists and police in the country's west.

    "We are an organized revolutionary force that is opening a new phase of the Ukrainian revolution," Yarosh told the rally.

    He also called for a referendum to impeach President Petro Poroshenko and his government.
