Right Sector activist detained in Sloviansk to be released in coming days

Irma Krat, an activist of the Right Sector, and representative of the self-defense forces of Ukraine's Donetsk region have held a joint briefing in Donetsk. Both parties stated that they agreed to release Irma Krat soon. The self-defense forces believe that she is one of the Maidan 'centurions', and have detained her on suspicion of subversion.

"The conditions are normal, nobody bullies me, I'm fed properly," Krat said at the briefing.

Answering questions of journalists, Irma Krat stated that she was disappointed by the results of the conflict in Kiev. The Female century of the Right Sector, which she leads, was advocating the release of Yulia Tymoshenko. "Yulia was freed, but nothing changed. There's no one to vote for on the upcoming elections," Krat said. "If those who rallied in Kiev, knew where the conflict would lead, they would not mount the barricades," the Right Sector activist said.

Krat added that during her stay in Donetsk, she did not see Russian servicemen and had not noticed signs of their presence.
