Violence spreads from Donetsk International Airport to nearby railway station; one civilian killed in crossfire
5:08 p.m. — Here’s a timeline from the Kyiv Post correspondents at the scene:
The armed, Kremlin-backed rebels showed up at the Donetsk International Airport at 3 a.m. and started facing off with the Ukrainian military that was guarding the airstrip. Negotiations began, but obviously failed. At 5:30 a.m., several rebels were captured by Ukrainian forces, according to the Defense Ministry. At 10 a.m., three buses of 50 Kremlin-back rebels entered the airport to support the militia already there.
