Ukraine At War
Police fired over the heads of protesters crashing a checkpoint in Konstantinovka today as clashes between blockaders and law-enforcers resumed. The National Council on Defense and Security supported President Petro Poroshenko’s own proposal of a ban on freight traffic from the Russia-backed separatist-held territories of the Donbass.
Forty-five protesters supporting a blockade of Russia-backed separatist-controlled regions of southeast Ukraine were detained in clashes with the National Guard this evening. Seven officers were injured and MP Volodymyr Parasyuk was hospitalized after being teargassed.
