A German journalist spent a few days in a training camp of the Ukrainian extremist group Right Sector. Its members are rushing to war ‘against Russia’ and want to get rid of the Ukrainian authorities responsible for the chaos in the country, Das Erste reported.

A new anti-government front formed in Ukraine among radical nationalist groups, united by the far-right Ukrainian nationalist political party Right Sector.

Its members seek to launch an offensive against militias in eastern Ukraine and get rid of the country’s political leadership.

“I'm here because I'm for truth. Our authorities are not able to create a functioning state. Our country is in chaos. I came here because all the guys are of the same opinion as I am,” a member of the extremist organization said.

The fighters do not obey to the orders of the Ministry of Defense and thus do not recognize the decisions made by the Kiev government. They consider themselves as ‘patriots’ and think that the revolution is yet not over. Many of them do not believe that the current government is able to improve the situation in Ukraine and seek to eliminate it by force.

According to the TV channel, the situation in Ukraine remains highly unstable. The withdrawal of troops by Donbass militias raised hopes that the conflict may finally be resolved. But the last developments, including the activities of the far-right extremists and unwillingness of the Kiev government to take peaceful response measures, demonstrate that the situation is far from returning to normal.

Right Sector is a Ukrainian association of radical, ultranationalist organizations that took an active part in the anti-government protests that led to the ousting of former President Viktor Yanukovych in February 2014.

The group was declared an extremist organization in Russia in November 2014 and subsequently banned.
