White supremacist Texas Rangers to train Ukraine junta’s police

According to the personal website of the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov, a group of Texas Rangers will come to Ukraine to train 25 officers of the Interior Ministry’s “Falcon” Special Forces.

“At the end of September, ten Texas Ranger will arrive in Ukraine, who will begin the selection and training of 25 officers of the “Falcon” Special Forces. In the future, this group will enter the National Police of Ukraine as a unit of special instructors,” Avakov wrote.

Representatives of the Texas Ranger also promised to provide the Ukrainian police with equipment.

[Translator’s note: The Texas Rangers are one of the most notoriously racist arms of U.S. capitalism. Formed by slave-owners, the Rangers fought on the side of the Confederacy in the U.S. Civil War, and later participated in the theft of large parts of Mexico. They were deployed against Mexican revolutionaries in the early 20th century, Black and Chicano liberation movements in the 1960s-1970s, and continue to carry out acts of terror against Black and Latino people.
