MOSCW, May 07, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine's security forces that surrounded Slavyansk are preventing civilians from leaving the city and fire at their cars and other transport vehicles, a spokesman for the Slavyansk self-defence forces told Itar-Tass by telephone.

"The city is surrounded, with civilians being prevented from leaving it. Recently, a family with a little child tried to leave the city in a car. However, the vehicle was fired upon. At least two people were killed as a result of the fire for effect," the spokesman said.

The representative of the volunteer corps said, "The so far unidentified people wearing a black uniform" had appeared at checkpoints around the city.

"We can suppose that those are Right-Sector people. However, we lack exact data on that score yet," he said.

"Besides, we have available data on the bringing of artillery guns up to Slavyansk, and on the organization of positions for firing from a salvo-fire Grad system, in particular," the representative of the self-defence forces said.
