Growing thousands of Eastern Ukrainians reject Kiev putschists. Perhaps it’s just a matter of time before Western ones join them.
Slavyansk is in the center of the storm. Ukrainian military forces blockaded the city. On Friday, an assault followed. Minimum casualties so far.
A self-defense force press statement said: “The attack is targeting a few checkpoints at the same time.”
“A few armored vehicles and airborne combat vehicles arrived and airborne troops descended from the helicopters and attacked the checkpoints. Some forces were dropped off around the train station, where we didn’t have anyone.”
