Ukrainian "partisan leader" was arrested near Moscow

Summary of Disinformation

In the Moscow region, an activist with the surname Pirozhok of the extremist Ukrainian organisation “Praviy Sektor” was arrested for being sent to Russia for propaganda and recruitment purposes.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the "Praviy Sektor [Right Sector]" threatening Russians and pro-Russian Ukrainians.

Artem Skoropadsky, spokesman of "Praviy Sektor", said that Pirozhok was member of the organisation until the end of 2014.  According to the spokesman, Pirozhok was excluded from the "Right Sector" because of "banditry schemes", and currently has no contact and had nothing in common with the organisation for at least four years.
