Right Sector activists held a memorial rally in Kiev, Tuesday, to honour the memory of Sashko Bily, a Right Sector member killed while Ukrainian police were attempted to arrest him one year ago today.

Right sector representatives gathered at Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kiev, the site of the Euromaidan protests, where they held a memorial prayer and lit flares in his honour.

Many masked men attended the memorial waving red and black Right Sector flags, while others carried pictures of Sashko Biliy. Authorities say Bily shot himself during the arrest, a claim which has been rejected by many of his supporters.
