Now that Right Sector militia is part of Ukraine armed forces, there is no obstacle to weapons paid for by the American taxpayer being delivered into its hands

The militias of the "right sector" in Ukraine are now greatly enhanced by this appointment, which was made on Sunday, April 5th. The chief of Ukraine's Armed Forces, General Viktor Muschenko, is thus incorporating the far-right militias into his army. Muschenko announces that the Ukrainian army has become one of the strongest in Europe. The soldiers of this army have proved that they know how to fight.
[Whereas the regular army of Ukraine has, thus far, performed poorly, top to bottom, the forces under Yarosh’s control, and under his fellow-nazi Andrei Biletsky’s, have been on a par with the local forces of the Donbass, against whom they’ve been fighting. But now, with the military expertise of the nazis and of their American advisors, training everyone starting on April 20th (which is Hitler’s birthday), this will be a different war, and could have a radically different outcome, which will then force a Russian invasion of Ukraine, especially because both Yarosh and Biletsky are lifelong-committed to conquering Russia.]
The army appreciates the "contributions" of volunteer battalions because they have "rendered outstanding services to the defense of Ukraine.” Muzhenko says: "We understand that we need to increase the efficiency of the army at all levels. We are currently considering various issues, such as how the reserve army can be formed. We have united all patriots and defenders of Ukraine under one management. The enemy understands our unity and knows that his attacks will fail. We have the common goal of a united Ukraine. The army grows stronger every week."
Jarosch said that this unity of command and operations is a prerequisite for further successful battles. The volunteer battalions of right sector are willing to integrate with the official Ukrainian army for that reason.
The Kiev Post reports that the right sector and other right militias will in the future function as an independently managed division of the Ukrainian army, which will be managed, directed, and commanded, by Jarosch.
For Russia, this is not good news. The right sector has so far refused to accept the Minsk agreements. The militias are considered particularly ideological and determined to continue the fight against Russia by any and all means. Whether the integration of Jarosch's troops into the official Army will produce a significant rightward shift in the entire army is as yet unclear.
It is quite conceivable that the new American weapons could thoroughly fall into the hands of the extreme right. As an official army unit, there should be no problem for these forces to access these weapons. It is also conceivable that the Jarosch forces will additionally get weapons that are financed by European taxpayers' money. Starting on April 20, will be military maneuvers in which the US Army will train these right-wing extremists.
The IMF recently granted to Ukraine a new billion-dollar loan. Germany and the EU also grant Kiev considerable loans, whose use has so far been insufficiently controlled by the EU. Among other things, these funds flow into the construction of a border wall against Russia. [That will present a barrier in case the local Donbass forces need assistance from the Russian army in a clinch. It will isolate the Donbass residents and possibly subject them to slaughter.]
Neither the US, the EU nor the IMF have expressed the slightest concern about Ukraine’s increasing control by the extreme right.
