"Anyone notice any local "Freedom Fighters" with uniforms and Kalashnikovs..."---;-) nice question! Btw, everyone
could "notice" them, but not in France.....firstly they've been "noticed" in Maidan and, say, in Rovno, Western Ukraine. Glorious fighters for "The free [from Russians, Juives and common sense] Ukraine":

Ever since our Crimea was liberated from disgusting Ukrainian pigs, it seems that a lot of regions are trying to archieve independence in the same way. Catalonia, Venetia, Scotland etc etc.
