Odessa’s new police chief, Ivan Katerinchuk, has addressed a crowd of Right Sector activists outraged at the earlier freeing of anti-government activists by the local police, RT’s Irina Galushko reports from the scene.
Greeting the radicals with “Glory to heroes!,” Katerinchuk went on to tell the crowd that “separatism is illegal, unlawful, and so is its propaganda,” Galushko tweets.
A crowd of masked Right Sector members and supporters have gathered at the regional police precinct to “get familiar” with the new chief. Katerinchuk, who is calling on the radical group to be “helpful and diligent,” is rumored to have been instrumental in Friday’s clashes in Odessa, according to Galushko.
