BREAKING: Battle between Russian and pro-Kermlin forces and Ukrainian special forces in Sloviansk, Ukraine.

This is a developing story. Return to this post for updates.


Heavy gunfire reported in Solviansk, Ukraine.


Latest details:

 Ukraine has launched an anti-terrorist operation in Sloviansk Ukraine against armed pro-Kremlin forces.


 Almost 200 Ukrainian anti-terror special forces have just landed in Sloviansk, Ukraine.


Earlier in the day reports came in that pro-Russian gunmen had occupied a police station and a security services building in  Sloviansk. Official buildings in Druzhkovka were reportedly taken over.

A Donetsk police chief quit after pro-Russian crowds marched on a police station demanding his resignation.


From RT:
There are reports from the scene of a heavy gunfight in the city of Slavyansk in eastern Ukraine, where anti-government protesters seized several government buildings. It comes after Kiev announced an “anti-terrorist operation” against the protesters.

People tweeting from the scene say there are helicopters flying over the defiant city in the Donetsk region. There are also reports of infantry vehicles being seen nearby.

The shooting is reportedly happening at a checkpoint, which was established by protesters Saturday evening on the outskirts of the city.

Coup-appointed Interior Minister Arsen Avakov on Sunday has announced an “anti-terrorist operation” in the city of Slavyansk, eastern Ukraine, where anti-Kiev activists seized several governmental buildings on Saturday. He made the announcement on his Facebook page, which he regularly uses to report on his ministry’s activities.

Avakov already announced “zero-tolerance policy towards armed terrorists” in Slavyansk and the deployment of anti-terrorist troops in the city on Saturday morning. However no action materialized, as security troops reportedly refused to follow an order to attack protesters.

Russia has warned that if Kiev uses force against anti-Maidan protests in eastern Ukraine, this would undermine the effort to convene a four-party conference on resolving the crisis in the country, which would include the US, the EU, Russia and Ukraine.

Note:  Sloviansk and Slavyansk are one in the same, both spellings are used.


Pro-Russians have seized local city hall & police HQ in Kramatorsk. Residents urged to stay indoors as gunfire continues.
