Ukraine armed groups reject 'extremist' label

Those who took part in revolution say "neo-Nazi" and "extremist" labels are insult to sacrifices they have made.

    Former President Viktor Yanukovich, and many in Russia, have described Ukraine's interim government as illegitimate and controlled by "dangerous extremists".

    Many Ukrainians who took part in the revolution to remove Yanukovich from power disagree and say it is an insult to the sacrifices they have made.
