KIEV, July 11. /TASS/. An armed conflict in the western Ukrainian city of Mukachevo has been preliminarily qualified as an act of terror, the press service of Trans Carpathian Prosecutor’s Office said on Saturday.

Two police cars were destroyed and several cars of civilians were damaged in shooting opened by armed people wearing camouflage uniforms with insignia of the Right Sector organisation banned in Russia.

"According to preliminary information, six police officers and three civilians received wounds of various degrees of severity," the prosecutors said noting that five armed persons with the Right Sector insignia were injured as well.

"As of 18.00 local time, these people are refusing to lay down arms and continue resistance, threatening armed resistance," they said.

Earlier on Saturday, reports were coming that two people were killed and eight wounded as the right-extremist Right Sector organisation attacked a gym and a traffic police station in Mukachevo in Trans Carpathia.

"Firing continues in Mukachevo. Two were killed, eight wounded," the local media reported. "The police have circled the city."

Besides, residents say about a fire at a gas filling station near an exit from the city.
