Right Sector, a far-right Ukrainian nationalist movement will not leave the anti-terrorist operation zone (ATO) despite the requirement of Lieutenant General Serhiy Nayev, stated the Commander of the Right Sector Ukrainian Volunteer Corps, Andriy Stempytsky.

“Volunteers will leave the ATO zone only when the territories annexed by the Russian Federation, including the Crimea, are regained,” he said. The squadron commander of the Right Sector Volunteer Corps, Dmytro Kotsyubaylo stated that volunteers always act in support of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“We are always ready to strengthen any brigade, any area of the [demarcation] line where we are needed. All the actions that we have taken fully agree with the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” he said.

According to the headquarters of the Joint Forces Operation, just over thirty fighters from the Right Sector Ukrainian Volunteer Corps are currently serving within the ranks of the Ukrainian army.
