DONETSK, April 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Protesters in Ukraine's Donetsk have returned part of the weapons they seized in the regional department of the Ukrainian Security Service /SBU/, Donetsk mayor Alexander Lukyanchenko told a news conference on Tuesday.
"Part of the weapons was returned to secret services, following talks between representatives of the City Council and SBU personnel," Lukyanchenko said.
The SBU building was seized overnight to April 7 by representatives of Donbas militia. On Monday evening, law-enforcers recaptured it in a special operation.
Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council Viktoria Syumar said Ukraine's parliament-appointed President Oleksandr Turchynov was personally supervising such special operations in Ukraine.
"All other heads of law-enforcement bodies in eastern regions are planning special operations to counter separatism and terrorism," she underlined.
