Ukraine troops will not storm Sloviansk


The decision is caused by their desire to avoid victims among citizens, head of the anti-terrorist operation, senior deputy SBU head, Vasili Krutov said. Information about militants seizing kindergartens and hospitals appeared earlier. “We will not risk the lives of peaceful citizens in any case. However, criminals, terrorists and separatists must and will bear responsibility for their actions,” UNIAN quotes him.

Sloviansk will be completely blocked by the Ukrainian riot police to avoid the arrival of separatists’ reinforcement in the city.
