Verkhovna Rada deputy (non-affiliated), leader of the Right Sector Dmytro Yarosh stands for accession of the "Ukrainian Volunteer Corps" Right Sector to the Armed Forces in exchange for granting of amnesty to the members of the organization, who took part in a shootout in the Zakarpattia region. He said this at a press briefing, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.
"We are ready to make a step to accommodate the State - join the ranks of the Armed Forces on the terms that I have voiced, granting of amnesty to those people... All our guys have combat experience and are ready to continue fighting. They would wash away the fault that rests with them by their blood, namely the blame of having risen to the provocation," Yarosh said.
According to Yarosh, Right Sector soldiers were lured into a trap July 11 as they have established their checkpoints and stopped the contraband the week before.
