Ukraine parliament votes to disarm illegal self-defence groups
The Ukrainian parliament has approved a move to disarm illegal self-defence groups that sprang up around the country during the protests against the previous government.
The vote was unopposed and followed a shooting in central Kyiv on Monday night in which three people were wounded.
A suspected member of a nationalist group was detained.
“Those who have weapons can only belong to the Ukrainian armed forces, the National Guard and Ukraine’s security service, or other military groups,”
