Ukraine: Coup regime raids home of Odessa anti-fascist leader

April 1 -- On the morning of April 1, Ukrainian Security Forces (SBU) agents raided the apartment of Odessa, Ukraine, anti-fascist leader Alexei Albu with a warrant authorizing them to search for lists of activists and for weapons.

Albu, an elected member of the Odessa Regional Council and local coordinator of the leftist Union Borotba (Struggle), was called in for questioning by the SBU on March 11 after he presented a proposal for a referendum on regional autonomy at the council.

Another local resistance leader, Anton Davidchenko, was seized by special forces on March 17 and kidnapped to Kiev, Ukraine's capital city.

On the eve of the raid, the local "Euromaidan" movement -- supporters of the pro-Western, fascist-dominated junta in Kiev -- held a rally outside police headquarters demanding the arrest of Albu and other prominent anti-fascists.
