Moscow outraged by incident in Sloviansk, insists on Ukraine fulfilling Geneva agreement – ministry

Slavyansk mayor asks Russia to send peacekeepers in wake of deadly night attack

Head of the self-defense units of Ukraine’s eastern town of Slavyansk, Vladimir Ponomaryov, who was appointed Slavyansk mayor by the town’s residents, has asked Russia to send peacekeepers to eastern Ukraine to protect civilians from National Guard and Right Sector militants.

“They kill our people. They don’t talk to us but just kill,” Ponomaryov said at an emergency press conference in the wake of last night’s armed clashes on the outskirts of Slavyansk.

“The town has actually been besieged by the Right Sector,” he said.

Only Russia can protect civilians from the Right Sector, Ponomaryov said, that’s why he decided to ask Russian President Vladimir Putin to send peacekeepers to the eastern Donetsk and Lugansk regions, the RIA Novosti news agency reports.

The leader of the self-defense forces in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slavyansk said Sunday up to seven gunmen who attacked a local checkpoint overnight were injured or killed by return fire. Vyacheslav Ponomaryov, also known as the acting Slavyansk mayor, has confirmed that one member of the self-defense forces was killed and two others were injured in the shootout.

Nevertheless, Ukraine’s Interior Ministry has stated Sunday three people, including two local citizens, were killed and three others were injured in overnight shootout at a checkpoint in the eastern city of Slavyansk, RIA reports.

Federalization supporters in Kharkov, Donetsk, Gorlovka, Slavyansk and Kramatorsk have refused to recognize the legitimacy of the current Ukrainian government and are urging interim authorities to hold referendums similar to the one held in Crimea last month, which led to the republic’s reunification with Russia. In response, Ukrainian authorities launched a special operation to crack down on the protests.
