Ukraine Nationalist Leader Joins Government: Right Sector MP Yarosh given Defence Ministry position
This is a constitutional legal problem (not only with Yarosh, also with other Ukrainian MPs). Members of parliament, the legislative branch of government, are supposed to control the executive branch of government, which becomes more complicated if those MPs at the same time have cushy jobs in that executive branch.
However, this is a minor problem if compared to the problem that the Ukrainian government awards influential positions to nazis like Yarosh.
6 April 2015
Right Sector nationalist politician and volunteer battalion leader Dmytro Yarosh has been appointed to Ukraine’s Defence Ministry. Yarosh is to be an advisor to Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Viktor Muzhenko, according to the ministry.
That was then.
Apparently, Ukrainian Dmitry Yarosh is not satisfied with just being fuehrer of the nazi party Right Sector, and his cushy government job as adviser to the Ministry of
War Defence. Now, he demands promotion to fuehrer of all Ukraine.

Ukraine-Mass neonazi rally demands that the government resigns
Thursday 23rd July 2015

NEONAZI Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh began setting up field offices to establish a national referendum across the country to demand the resignation of government ministers.
The Right Sector fuehrer told a rally of up to 6,000 of his supporters in central Kiev on Tuesday evening that events marked a “new stage of the Ukrainian revolution.”
The field offices would act as “revolutionary committees,” he added.
“People must voice their attitude to what’s happening in the country … the government should know that, if the people are not pleased with it, then it must go,” he declared.
The Right Sector leader went on to say that, if the movement is not given the right to organise the referendum, it will create its own election committee and “will vote independently on the whole territory of Ukraine.”
The extremists, wearing camouflage uniforms and waving the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) red and black flags associated with wartime nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera, chanted: “Death to our enemies.”
Speaking on Maidan, Mr Yarosh said that his organisation is “showing that we are a disciplined revolutionary force,” opening a “new stage of the Ukrainian revolution.”
The demonstrators demanded the immediate resignation of Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.
As well as a referendum to show no confidence in the Ukrainian authorities, Mr Yarosh said that there should also be a vote over imposing martial law on the territory of Ukraine, including the eastern regions that do not recognise the Kiev government.
Thousands of people took to the streets of Kiev on Sunday to protest over the rising costs of housing, gas and electricity.
They carried banners proclaiming: “Where are the reforms?” and “we are dying of hunger.”
A similar rally took place in the central city of Dnepropetrovsk where demonstrators, mainly older people, blocked a main road, demanding the resignation of President Petro Poroshenko.
The Ukrainian Ministry of Culture published a list last weekend of 14 singers and actors whose work will be banned from appearing on radio, television or film. Their songs will be pulled from Ukrainian radio and permits for screening their films will be withdrawn: here.
