KIEV, March 8. /TASS/. Ukrainian radicals responsible for the railway blockade of Donbass refuse to obey the police ordering people to give up weapons when crossing into the Donetsk region, the so-called blockade headquarters said in a statement on Wednesday.
"The restrictions imposed by the National Police’s chief for the Donetsk region (Vyacheslav Ambroskin) are illegal and therefore, will not be fulfilled by the headquarters," it said on Facebook.
Earlier on Wednesday, police chief of the Donetsk region, Vyacheslav Ambroskin, issued a resolution barring weapons in the Donetsk region, even if the owner has a permit for their possession. The regional police chief said that in the area of the military operation "luxury when people are roaming the streets with weapons" should not be allowed. The resolution bans those who cross into the region to carry weapons. Those who will refuse will not be kept out of the region.
The document does not cover officers of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, National Guards and National Police who stay in the Donetsk region, but so-called ‘volunteers,’ including blockade organizers.
