KIEV, April 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian protesters on Wednesday seized six armored vehicles of the Ukrainian army which had rolled in the town of Kramatorsk, Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine, as part of the task force to conduct an anti-terrorist operation, local media reported.
Activists surrounded the vehicles and blocked their movement. Then they disarmed the servicemen and drove the APCs towards the village of Ivanivka.
On Tuesday, Ukrainian security services carried out a raid in the airport of Kramatorsk and won it back from the city’s self-defense forces.
At the same time, at 17:00 GMT on Tuesday physicians from Kramatorsk reported that no people injured in the shootout during the airport’s storming were delivered to local hospitals.
Representatives of the Kramatorsk self-defense forces say that Right Sector militants and foreign mercenaries were taking part in the storming of the airport. “The attackers were dressed in the uniform of Right Sector militants, and some of them spoke foreign languages.”“They sought to avoid contact with local residents, allegedly not to give themselves away. We suppose that these were mercenaries,” one of the Kramatorsk self-defense activists reported.
The Kramatorsk airport is now controlled by Ukrainian servicemen, but the city itself is still under control of self-defense units. “We were indeed knocked off from the airport, but the city is under our control. We won’t let anyone in it,” one of the activists assured, stressing that the city’s self-defense forces are ready to fight against armored equipment.
