‘Right Sector could destroy Minsk peace deal before it even starts’ – analyst

on: February 15, 2015

By rejecting a ceasefire agreed upon by the so-called “Normandy 4,” the leader of Ukraine’s Right Sector movement may undermine the fragile deal in the situation when there’s no unity even within the Kiev government, political expert Lode Vanoost told RT.

In a statement published on his Facebook page on Friday, ultranationalist leader Dmitry Yarosh claimed that the peace agreement has no legal merit and that it is contrary to Ukraine’s constitution.  
Yarosh claimed that any agreement with the eastern militia, whom he calls “terrorists,” has no legal force. In his statement, Yarosh claimed that that the Minsk deal is contrary to Ukraine’s constitution, so Ukrainian citizens are not obliged to abide by it. 

Thus if the army receives orders to cease military activity and withdraw heavy weaponry from the eastern regions, the Right Sector paramilitaries, who are also fighting there “reserve the right” to continue the war, he said.
