“The fighters in balaclavas with Molotov cocktails in their hands [that] became the face of the Ukrainian protest.”
Right Sector Leaders: clockwise, Dmytro Yarosh, Andriy Stempitskyy, Andriy Tarasenko

The Right Sector (Pravyy Sector) appeared on the front pages of world mass media after the first clashes on Hrushevskoho street on January 19. Within days, the fighters in balaclavas with Molotov cocktails in their hands became the face of the Ukrainian protest. The Maidan ceased to be peaceful, and the first news reports on casualties began to appear.
In fairness, it must be admitted that these very actions by the Right Sector in response to the adoption of the “draconian” laws forced the presidential administration to make concessions: to abolish the laws adopted on January 16 and adopt the law on amnesty.
