This news report from 5 Kanal shows the work of the Self-Defence Brigades which patrol the Ivano-Frankivsk barricades around the municipal and regional administration building. They stand guard as volunteers from 8pm each day and there are around 400 volunteers, all men, involved. The celebrity aspect to this is that a Ukrainian record-holding strongman is involved.
The report says that in two weeks, around 20 people have been held by the brigades, including drunks, ‘marauders’ and one armed man.
They will remain in place until presidential elections are called.
