However, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said there are dead and wounded on both sides of the conflict between Ukrainian police and pro-Russian militants. News services also reported that one man from the pro-Russian insurgent side had also been killed.

One slain man in a black uniform was a Security Service of Ukraine officer, while the injured included Ukrainian soldiers who drove there in armored personal carriers, according to eyewitnesses and officials.

“I came here to report to our guys on the barricades in case the Ukrainian army approaches,” Volodymyr Kolochenko, an eyewitness, and local city council member from Communist Party, who supports the pro-Russian insurgents, told the Kyiv Post. “They approached this car, from which four men in blue and green camouflage uniforms ran out and started shooting soldiers.”
