The Keltsvia Freedom Army (Labwese: Kelcvjalur Rifekarme) was an armed Keltsvian nationalist and separatist organization. The group was founded in 1992. The group is responsible for the killing, injuring and kidnapping of politicians. The group was considered a terrorist organization. Some of their members are incarcerated in prisons of Russia, Belarus and other former USSR countries.
Some Keltsvian nationalist parties were considered the political wing of the KFA (KRA in Labwese). The following political parties were declared illegal for that reason:
- Keltsvjafewte (Keltsvian nation).
- Rifkeltsvja (Free Keltsvia).
- Keltsvjapartje (Keltsvian Party).
- Rifeke'partje (Party of Freedom).
- Urseku'Legje (Legion of Urseku).
The KFA was formed by guerrillas operating mostly in the forests but sometimes they provoked bombings on the cities of Mogilev and Smolensk. The forests of Keltsvian regions were unsafe during the activity of the KFA. The leader of the KFA, nicknamed Commander Urseku, was the also the speaker of the group and sended videos to the governments of Belarus and Russia explaining their actions.
Dissolution of the KFA
After the Independence of Keltsvia, Commander Urseku announced the end of the armed struggle of the KFA because it didn't have any reason to exist. The identity of the Commander Urseku is still unknown, but the Keltsvian authorities and the governments of Russia and Belarus are investigating for his crimes. Keltsvia gained the respect of the international community saying that the government of Keltsvia would send him to the International Criminal Court of The Hague.
