Dozens of people in Kyiv paid last tribute to the servicemen who served with the volunteer battalion of the Right Sector, far-right nationalist movement. According to Yana Zinkevych, the battalion’s medic, both died during attacks of pro-Russia militants on Butivka coal mine in Donetsk region on June 12. However, the government denied that Ukrainian troops suffered fatalities on that day; the reason is that the volunteer battalion of the Right Sector doesn’t officially belong to governmental armed units.

“People are paying tribute to the two fighters of the Right Sector, who ‘officially’ are alive”, posted volunteer Olexiy Hrytsenko, one of leaders of the All-Ukraine Union ‘Automaidan’.
