When an armed mob of about
50 Russian-backed insurgents started shooting with weapons and throwing incendiary
and explosive devices at the National Guard troops, they fired warning shots at
them, said Avakov. When the armed crowd attacked again, the Ukrainian troops
shot to kill.

Together with a special
Interior Ministry unit, the Ukrainian forces dispersed most of the crowd of 300, arresting 63. The core of the group was corralled and the militant crowd
was broken up.

Weapons were taken as
well as Russian mobile phone communication devices.
