According to Mayor Boris Filatov, there was an ‘abnormal situation with police behavior ’ in the city.
‘If the situation does not change, then an analogue of the German Freikorps of the early twentieth century will be created in the city ... If the authorities can not protect people, they themselves have the right to do this,’ Filatov added.

After clashes on mass rallies on Victory Day, the mayor of the Ukrainian Dnieper (former Dnepropetrovsk), Boris Filatov, decided to stop financing veterans' organizations. Instead, he proposed allocating budgetary funds to the former participants of the military operation in Donbass.
‘From today on, I am closing the city funding for all «veteran» organizations ... At the next session of the city council, the city funding will be allocated to the Union of the Nazi ATO Veterans (it is what Kiev calls the military operation in Donbass),’ Filatov wrote on his page in Facebook.
