On Saturday, September 27 the Communist Party (KPU) had called a “March for Peace”. The call was banned by the authorities and the rally was attacked by fascist thugs. The police then proceeded to arrest dozens of protesters, including the first secretary of the Kharkov KPU Alla Alexander.
Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov personally intervened in making sure the planned demonstration to Lenin’s monument, would not go ahead. The reason given was that the march was nothing but an “anti Ukranian provocation”. The same line of argument was used by Vice-Mayor of Kharkov Igor Terekhov who told journalists that “the Provincial Department of the SBU has at its disposal evidence that the peaceful march Communists will be used to create a provocation by non-constructive forces and to destabilise the situation in Kharkov.” He added that “we have important peace and quiet in the city. Therefore, we can not allow the holding of marches.”
This means that anyone who is in opposition to the war in the Donbass is in fact considered an “enemy of Ukraine” and his or her political rights can therefore be violated by the state with total impunity.
“Recent reports have indicated that law enforcement agencies from coast to coast have been turning to IMSI-catcher devices, like the StingRay sold by Florida’s Harris Corporation, to trick ordinary mobile phones into communicating device-specific International Mobile Subscriber Identity information to phony cell towers — a tactic that takes the approximate geolocation data of all the devices within range and records it for investigators. Recently, the Tallahassee Police Department in the state of Florida was found to have used their own “cell site simulator” at least 200 times to collect phone data without once asking for a warrant during a three-year span, and details about the use of StingRays by other law enforcement groups continue to emerge on the regular.”

Semen Semёnchenko, commander of the Ukrainian punitive battalion “Donbass,” said that an agreement with the United States military instructors to train its fighters by U.S. Navy Seals. He wrote about this on his page on the social networking site Facebook.
"We have a contract to provide training to officers and men of the Donbass battalion mobile teams with instructors from the USA, currently non-active military personnel. Would run on a traditional training, the training system of the Navy Seals and Delta Force," he said in a statement.
According to Semёnchenko, training has been specially prepared for each unit, such as intelligence and special forces.
"Particular attention is paid to individual training and group interaction. We used the maximum number of practical exercises. Another important point — training NCOs (noncommissioned officers) to be self-sufficient and control the group," said Semёnchenko.
He said the training will start in 10 days, and then, if successful, the instructors will travel to other areas.
Recall that on September 15 Semёnchenko arrived in Washington as part of the Ukrainian delegation. He said he wanted to negotiate training the commanders of Ukrainian volunteer battalions.
