Men in Black Stopped Separatism’s Flourishing in Kharkiv
It’s clear that today, on May 1, separatists in Kharkiv had planned operations aimed at seizing state institutions, seizing weapons, and setting up a Kharkiv People’s Republic. In reality, the collaborators were only able to conduct a small First of May demonstration on a reservation guarded by the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVS), a demonstration where pseudo-workers supposedly rooted for Ukrainian workers.
But why didn’t a separatist orgy happen in Kharkiv? The fact is that about 300 so-called men in black showed up in town in the morning, and they patrolled the city with the support of local patriots and Ultras. They managed to warn people about traitors to the Fatherland making speeches and localize their speechmaking. Currently the men in black continue to operate in the Kharkiv, Donetsk, and Luhansk oblasts.
If the government cannot stop separatists’ activities, then the Ukrainian people will do it.
