“In Kalanchak people have taken up arms and created self-defense units against the gangs who rob stores and induce fear into the local population, and as a result, the police of the Kherson region say all is well. They work in a regular mode”, — writes the editor of the local media Taras Buzak.

According to local residents, they have created a real mess and the situation every day only becomes more aggravated. The Police and security services do nothing.

“I can confirm! There really is lawlessness! This is my district, so I can not stand for it!”, — said the Deputy of the Kherson regional Council Evgeniy Krinitsky.
