Three recent publications1-3 stressed out that some kinematic relations of velocity increments comprise a manifestation of nonlocal effects, e.g. large and small scale quantities are correlated. This feature invalidates the so-called random sweeping hypothesis that large and small scales are statistically independent. It is noteworthy that, pure kinematic relations that emphasize the non-local effects thereby become dynamically significant. Some kinematic relations could be used for the validation of experimental results.
