Self declared mayor Ponomarev: "go away journalist, I'm speaking to civilians, not to you" #slavyansk #ukraine



SLAVIANSK, Ukraine, May 2 (Reuters) - Pro-Russian separatists in Slaviansk in eastern Ukraine said on Friday Ukrainian forces had launched a "large-scale operation" to retake the town and one military helicopter had been shot down.

A Reuters photographer said he saw a military helicopter open fire on the outskirts of the town and a reporter heard gunfire.

In Kiev, an aide to Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said he could not comment.

"Until it's over, no one will say anything," he said.

Armed groups seeking union with Russia have seized a number of government buildings in towns in eastern Ukraine. (Reporting by Maria Tsvetkova; Writing by Elizabeth Piper; Editing by Timothy Heritage)

Hard to tell, the video is super bright and washed out. Great catch on the live cam link tho.


Edit - I think I see what you are talking about, or is that a treetop?

It's all over the place as far as the details, you know how twitter is. One thing for certain is that things are in violent motion. We have to help each other deduce what is true and false.

I doubt that but who knows, I'm sure the separatists would say otherwise. However, based on the plumes I'm seeing on the webcam it would seem this day has been the most active by the Ukrainian troops so far..
