The shootout began around 3 a.m. in Bylbasovka, a suburb of the city of Sloviansk in Donetsk Oblast. 

Local witnesses said four cars drove up to the checkpoint with headlights on and opened fire at the pro-Russian militiamen guarding it, killing Serhiy Rudenko, a local school bus driver, and two others. Some of the locals told the Russian media the gun battle outside Sloviansk killed three and wounded one. 

Ukraine’s Interior Ministry confirmed that three men were shot dead and said three others were injured during the incident, adding that it believed the event to be fabricated.
