Crimea bans allegedly Neo-Nazi parties “Freedom” and “Right Sector”
The Supreme Council of Crimea instructed the Security Service to punish for incitement to violence and banned the Ministry of Justice from registering the allegedly neo-Nazi organisations in the autonomy, reports the press-centre of the parliament.
At today’s extraordinary session of the Supreme Council of the ARC, the deputies decided to ban in Crimea the pro-fascist parties and public organisations, including “Freedom” party and “Right Sector” organisation together with its constituents — Stepan Bandera’s “Trident”, UNA-UNSO, “Patriot of Ukraine”, “Carpathian Sich”, “Brotherhood” of Dmitry Korchinskiy and others — as they pose a threat to the lives and security of the Crimeans.
ARC Security Service should identify and bring to justice those responsible for inciting ethnic hatred and violence. ARC Ministry of Justice prohibited from registering the Crimea Branches of neo-Nazi parties and organisations.
Deputies noted that on the March 5, 2014 Russia’s Investigative Committee indicted in absentia the “Right Sector” leader Dmitry Yarosh for public incitement to terrorism and extremism. A criminal case has also been opened against the “Right Sector” activist Alexander Muzychko for creating the gang to attack the Ukrainians and Russians who disagree with the new government. Accused are on the international wanted list.
“In Crimea, people are outraged by lawlessness that prevails in many regions of Ukraine as a result of actions of the militants with total laissez-faire attitude of the self-proclaimed authorities in Kiev. ARC authorities take all measures to prevent the infiltration of extremists on its territory. Recent statements by members of right-wing extremist group “Right Sector” about the possibility of sending its activists in Crimea cause extreme concern, as it will lead to an escalation of violence on the peninsula,” stressed the press centre of the Crimea parliament.
