KIEV, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. A military airdrome near Kramatorsk has been reportedly seized by Ukrainian army units. Military spokesmen say the facility is “under reliable protection.”
According to the same sources, planes and helicopters had been ordered into the air “to protect military equipment because there had been no chance to guess how long the operation would take.”
“Now the city is calm and the National Guard is at work,” they claim.
Earlier, witnesses said that helicopters were hovering over the airdrome near Kramatorsk during the operation to storm the facility. A large crowd was seen nearby.
According to some sources, shots were fired in the area of the airdrome and some people were injured. Witnesses claimed that one plane was shot down and an assault group of 40-50 appeared in the area.
