A bus column with people in military uniform is moving towards the city of Slaviansk, the center of pro-federalization protests in eastern Ukraine, eyewitnesses have told RIA Novosti.
“A bus column with people in Ukrainian military uniform inside was spotted near the Cherkasskoe village west of Slaviansk. They are moving in the direction of the city,” a local taxi driver said.
Now the column is approaching the Bylbasovka village, where unidentified persons opened fire at a militia barricade on Sunday, killing three people.
Moreover, a helicopter was scattering leaflets on Friday for local people with “the rules of conduct during the anti-terrorist operation” in Slaviansk.
Suspension of the military operation is out of the question, Ukrainian Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov wrote on his Facebook page yesterday.
“Only minor resources” of the Anti-Terrorist Center (ATC) of Ukraine’s Security Service are participating in the operation, no tanks and other heavy military equipment are used, Avakov said.
