KIEV, September 11. /ITAR-TASS/. A school for training diversionists has opened on the basis of Skhidny Korpus radical right-wing movement in the Kharkiv region, the Ukrainian television channel '24' said Thursday.

Training sessions at the school are given by instructors who have gain combat experience during the Kiev government's punitive operation in the much-troubled breakaway Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

"We teach the techniques of knife fighting and the fundamental elements of subversive activity," an instructor calling himself by the nickname Sirko told the reporter.

Organizers of the school keep information on the number of trainees strictly confidential. Those who have enrolled for the course wear balaclavas all the time.

At present, the trainees are taking a specialized course to beef up their physical fitness.

Skhidny Korpus is one of a dozen 'public associations' that focus their activity on an upkeep of anti-Russian hysteria and on extravagant actions like the digging of a ditch on the border with Russia.

Vecherny Kharkov newspaper mentioned it among the organizers of the digging near the Pletenevka border crossing station in the northeast of the Kharkov region. The action took place Thursday, with the masterminds saying it aimed "to impede the advance of Russian troops into the Ukrainian territory."

A spokesman for the Kharkiv branch of Euro-Maidan movement told the newspaper the "patriots of Ukraine" planned to hold the ditch-digging actions on a weekly basis in the future.
