SLAVYANSK, May 3 (Itar-Tass) - One was killed and more than ten people were wounded when fire was opened on the building of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) in Slavyansk, Donbass (Donetsk region) militiamen said.
The SBU building, occupied by the headquarters of self defence forces, was under sniper fire for hours on Friday, an Itar-Tass correspondent reported from the site.
One defender was killed as a result of the punitive operation conducted in Slavyansk. Rumours that "people's mayor" Vyacheslav Ponomaryov was wounded and died were not confirmed. At the same time, some wounded people were in very grave conditions.
It was quiet in the city on the night. No shots were heard. Defenders remained on alert, expecting a new assault and shooting to begin on Saturday morning, at about 05:00 Moscow time.
