In the absence of effective military forces or law enforcement, Ukrainians are taking the defense of the nation in their own hands through loosely organized militias.
One of them popped up in a YouTube video on May 2.
Although the group was unidentified, the clip was posted by a pro-Ukrainian group of former military and law enforcement officers, calling themselves the Donbass Volunteer Battalion. The video shows men armed with Kalashnikov rifles and clad in black ninja outfits dismantling a Kremlin-backed roadblock near Krasnoarmiysk in western Donetsk Oblast.
The national warriors also claim that 15 pro-Russian rebels were handed over to the police and that three Kalashnikovs were recovered.
The groups leader, Semyon Semenchenko, wrote on his Facebook page that the group is taking up arms and structuring like the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, the World War II era partisan group that fought both Nazi Germany and Soviet NKVD units in a futile attempt to gain national independence for Ukraine.

It's good to be cautious about news from them parts.
there’s a lesson to be learned here
This almost sounds familiar:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
It would either be a good start or a last stand.
Either way—see you there!
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Militias will worry the Russians more than any regular Ukrainian army unit. They know the land, the people, they won’t fight by any rules, and they won’t be accountable to anyone. This is the best and worst thing that could happen.
Given the media here, it would likely read, "Right-wing hate groups form militias to throw nation into chaos."
But, yes. Your point is a possible future scenario.
Yes, "genuine, civilized patriots " just like their Galicia Waffen SS grandfathers who murdered hundreds of thousands of Jews, Poles and Russians.
The handiwork of genuine civilized Ukrainian patriots in Odessa, May 2nd.
Strangled cleaning lady whose screams for help are recorded:
Ukrainian Nazi version of "civilized":
A boy and girl murdered by "genuine Ukrainian patriots":
Perhaps up to 300 civilians were murdered in Odessa May 2nd by Ukrainian Nazi Right Sector and their NATO instructors. Murderers you call genuine patriots.
That's kind of "civilized" U.S. and EU support in Ukraine as we speak.
Those who lost their lives fighting against Nazism are spinning in their graves !
Agitprop lives on FR
One thing I'm certain of, the US need to stay away from there if we can.
As well as Nazi revisionism and denial !
WW2 ended a while back. The topic is now defense of a sovereign nation against an invader.
Killing has a tendency to feed on itself.
My heart goes out to the Ukrainian people. I hope the good guys win, whoever they are.
Too late. U.S. is leading the show over there. Graystone, acronym agencies, they are already on the ground.
The objective: mass murder Russian civilians in Ukraine to poke the Bear to intervene.
So far the Bear is reluctant...but might bite where not expected.
U.S.-sponsored AQ in Syria is fleeing Homs...
Where they will go?
That's a false accusation. I said I hoped they would be both civilized and patriots.
I don't know who the hell those folks are.
