England football fans hurt in Kiev.

An altercation between England and Ukraine fans in the centre of Kiev after which three Britons were briefly hospitalised has heightened tensions in the runup to Tuesday's crucial World Cup match in the city.
The fight erupted outside a cafe on Kiev's main Khreshchatik thoroughfare after a crowd of England fans became involved in an argument with a group of Ukrainians. Some witnesses said at least one Ukrainian had a knife, but police deny knives were used.
Three Britons, aged 19, 22 and 23, were treated in hospital for cuts and bruises. "It was an ordinary men's fight without any knives," said witness Igor Mykhalko, denying that the Ukrainians were skinheads. "Just ordinary guys," he said. "This could happen in any country between football fans." He added that the trio "went on partying" once discharged.
Tim White, a Briton working in Ukraine, who witnessed the incident, told journalists that he saw the blood on the pavement and broken glass. He said that about 100 British fans had been partying at the Shato cafe. After the fight, he saw a man with cuts on his arm and "a guy lying on the ground had a lot of blood coming out from his hand".
Kevin Miles, director of international affairs of the Football Supporters' Federation, said: "My understanding was that there was a group of English fans drinking beer outside the pub on Khreschatyk called the Shato, and they had flags outside and the Ukrainians came to steal the flags."
About 2,000 English fans are expected to attend the qualifier at the Olympic Stadium.

Ukraine May Reopen Old Uman Airport for Bretslavers


Ukraine is planning to open a decommissioned airport near Uman for Bretslaver chasidim. The airport of Cherkasy Oblast, the central Ukrainian district where Uman is located, may be reopened as soon as next year, spokesperson Nicholas Sukhovoj told the Israeli Russian-language newspaper Vesti. 
The move would help alleviate traffic from the Odessa-Kiev highway that Bretslavers currently use to travel to Uman, the burial place of Rebbe Nachman, the founder of the Breslav chasidic movement. “The airport is in good condition and only needs lights on the runway,” Sukhovoj said. Some 25,000 Bretslavers converge in Uman each year ahead of Rosh Hashana, to pray near Rebbe Nachman’s grave. The option of running extra trains to Uman is also being discussed, as many visitors reportedly face difficulties in reaching their destination in time. Uman Mayor Peter Payevsky told the news site on Thursday that he expected more than 800 buses to arrive in Uman in the coming days, with 7,000 people due to arrive next Tuesday alone.

Femen founders—known for topless protests—flee Ukraine with allegations against Vladimir Putin


GOVERNMENT PERSECUTION HAS forced Femen founders to flee Ukraine, where the militant feminist group was created in 2008.
According to a statement on the Femen website, they were "systematically harassed, severely beaten, kidnapped, and repeatedly received threats" in July.
Femen maintains that Russian and Ukrainian special services perpetrated these acts under instructions from Russian president Vladimir Putin and his close ally, Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.
"FEMEN officially says fuck off to all dictators," the group declares defiantly on its website.
Femen reveals that Yana Zhdanova, Anna Hutsol, and Alexandra Shevchenko were summoned on August 30 to face charges.
According to an interview cofounder Shevchenko granted to the Kyiv Post, the three women, along with Femen's Iksana Shachko, had escaped to Paris.
Last month, the Straight reported that Femen supporter Viktor Svyatsky, a Ukrainian political scientist, was assaulted. He was warned "the girls will be next" if anyone protested an upcoming Putin visit to Kiev. 
Femen protesters invariably remove their tops showing slogans across their breasts and backs. They target right-wing politicians, patriarchal religious groups, and those who discriminate against the LBGT community, including Putin.
Putin's government has introduced the most repressive antigay legislation among G8 countries, threatening to arrest anyone even suspected of being gay.
Femen has chapters in many countries, including Canada. The Canadian group's Facebook page carries this message: "Our God is woman, our mission is to protest, our weapons are our bodies."
