ODESSA, April 16. /ITAR-TASS/. An arms depot owned by the Right Sector radical ultranationalist organization was discovered on Wednesday in the southwestern Ukrainian city of Odessa, local media reported.
The depot contained rounds of ammunition, cold weapons, clubs, Molotov cocktails, firecrackers and other munitions.
It was discovered by representatives of Odessa Cossacks, who help law enforcement bodies to ensure order on the streets. They called the police. The Odessa department of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry confirmed the report on the search, but provided no details.
Earlier, supporters of Kiev authorities declared “full combat alert” in connection with an “attack on the city” allegedly being prepared.
The atmosphere of a siege was supplemented by antitank hedgehogs to restrain armored vehicles on beaches near Odessa, and trenches being dug by border guards around checkpoints on the coast.
The local Interior Ministry department has announced that volunteers may apply to join special police units entitled Storm that will be formed from supporters of Kiev authorities. The volunteers, jointly with police, have unfolded their checkpoints on roads around the city since Tuesday.
