Ukraine's ultra-radical Right Sector party has dismissed Twitter reports about the death of its leader, Dmytro Yarosh, near Ilovaisk, Donetsk region.
"If it is about Twitter and about (Yarosh's) death, then it is untrue … Consider this an official statement from Right Sector: our guide is alive and well and on the frontline," Right Sector spokesman Artyom Skoropadskiy told Interfax on Tuesday.
Earlier on Tuesday morning, a tweet signed as Pan Yarosh (identifier: ru_yarosh) and with Yarosh's photo on the avatar reported the death of the account holder near Ilovaisk.
