MOSCOW, March 5. /ITAR-TASS/. Right Sector leader Dmytro Yarosh has been put on international wanted list. Charges are brought against him in absentia, spokesperson for Russia’s Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin reported on Wednesday.
The investigation believes that in his speeches, the leader of Ukrainian ultranationalist organization Right Sector Dmytro Yarosh publicly called anti-Russian forces to extremist actions ant terrorism on Russia’s territory.
Markin stressed that “any person committing or making calls for committing grave crimes on Russia’s territory or towards its citizens would definitely be held criminally liable in compliance with rules of international laws and Russian legislature regardless his location of citizenship, when that entails the protection of legal interests of Russian citizens and constitutional bases of our state”.
“The investigation made a ruling that puts Dmytro Yarosh in international wanted list. In the soonest time, the investigation intends to appeal for issuing an order of detention in absentia,” Markin added.
Four days ago, Yarosh posted a call on the VK.com social network, urging Chechen separatist leader Doku Umarov to support Ukraine's anti-Russian forces "with weapons in arms".
"Ukrainians have always supported the liberation struggle of the Chechen and other Caucasian peoples. Now it’s the time for you to support Ukraine," Yarosh wrote. "As the Right Sector leader, I urge you to step up the fight. Russia is not as strong as it seems.”
During the first Chechen war, Yarosh was among several Ukrainian militants fighting against Russian troops. His post has caused indignation in republics of the North Caucasus and among the Russian public and lawmakers.
