Representatives of the Ukrainian radical movement 'Right Sector' attempted to organize riotous disturbances in order to stage a coup d'etat in Russia. It has been indicated in the report delivered by Russian Prosecutor General Yuriy Chaika to the Federation Council.

'Access to the pages of the social network VKontakte has been blocked since the network was used by supporters of the Ukrainian nationalist group Right Sector to make attempts to organize civil unrest and unsanctioned public protests with the aim of committing coup d’état in the Russian Federation,' RIA Novosti cites Chaika’s report.

At the beginning of 2014, 'Right Sector' radicals fought against Ukrainian police officers and took part in the seizure of administrative buildings, and starting from April – they were involved in the suppression of protests in eastern Ukraine.

In Russia, this nationalist group has been recognized as an extremist one and added to the list of banned organizations. Moreover, Russian prosecutors opened a criminal case against the leader of the movement Dmytro Yarosh for his appeals to terrorist activities.
