The leader of the Ukrainian radical group Right Sector, Dmitry Yarosh, was a major player the protests in Kiev that toppled the government in February. Now Yarosh has thrown his hat in the ring to be the country's next elected president. The Right Sector movement, an amalgamation of several far-right groups, was formed in November 2013. After the February 21 agreement between now-ousted President Viktor Yanukovich and opposition leaders was signed, the Right Sector declared they did not recognize it and would continue the armed struggle. But Yarosh is facing opposition from Russia. On Wednesday, Russia put Yarosh on an international wanted list and charged him with inciting terrorism.-http://youtu.be/2R7chF70UTwThe ultra-nationalist movement's chairman Andriy Tarasenko said that Right Sector will also become a political party. "Dmytro Yarosh will run for president," he said. "We are preparing for a congress, at which the party will be renamed, and we will participate in the elections in Kyiv, the elections in all local councils, towns and villages." "We remain the leaders of this revolution. We are mobilising, we are preparing to react to foreign aggression," Tarasenko added, claiming that the movement was ready for a full-scale war with Russia.Ukraine's Neo-Fascist Right Sector Leader Dmytro Yarosh to Run for President
