BBC is reporting on it -

Gunmen seize Ukraine police station in Sloviansk


Armed men dressed in camouflage clothing have seized a police station in eastern Ukraine, officials say.

Police said the gang fired shots and used stun grenades to seize the offices in Sloviansk, near the Russian border.

Interior Minister Arsen Avakov called the gunmen "terrorists" and said special forces would repel the attack.

Pro-Russian protesters have taken over government buildings throughout eastern Ukraine. Kiev says the unrest is being orchestrated from Moscow.

Protesters in the eastern city of Donetsk, 130km (80 miles) from Sloviansk, have been occupying government buildings for days and demanding a referendum on becoming part of Russia.

A similar move prompted a Russian takeover of Ukraine's Crimea region earlier this year.

The US and EU have put sanctions on Russian and Crimean people they say were connected with the takeover.

Video of the moment the attack began on the police station. Definately special forces, or highly trained separatists.

That looks like a MI-24 / MI-35 Hind if I am not mistaken. Maybe a KA-50...

Where did the pro Russian forces get those from?

Cant say if its Russian or Ukrainian. Take a look at the other video of the beginning of the attack on the police station, extremely well trained guys, could even be Russian military.

RT says its the office of the security services of Ukraine.


Anti-Maidan protesters in Slavyansk seize local offices of Ukraine’s Security Service, police say.



Thousands of federalization supporters are rallying in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, reports RIA Novosti. Witnesses say the protesters have started creating an assistance group to be sent to anti-Maidan protesters in the town of Slavyansk, where several administrative buildings were occupied over the night.


Note several, not one building.

Ukrainian pravda speculating about direct Russian involvement.

Note 'little green men' is a slang for Russian army who have green uniform.


At the entrance to Slovyansk, made checkpoints with armed men who control traffic at the "Congress and leave the city. This Ukrainian Pravda reported an informed source from the event. According to the source, several people at checkpoints armed with guns, others - pistols. However, as says the publication of the island, armed men in camouflage organized checkpoint, which strengthened the barricades of tires and do not miss the bus to the city with the police. Also, local media report that camouflage and weapons of these people are very similar to equipping and arming "little green men" who were in the Crimea during the invasion of Russian troops.


Kanal 24 reports green men have set up checkpoints to the entrance of Slovyansks, no one can enter.

This is unofficially being called an invasion.

If this is in fact Russia invading, I am curious what the reaction will be from the west. I am also wondering how many more chances they give Putin before they come to the realization that they are behind the curve and that sanctions are not working as intended.
