Checkpoints manned by pro-Russian separatists on the outskirts of Slovyansk, eastern Ukraine, came under attack by Ukrainian forces on April 24 with several shots fired. The Ukrainian Ministry of Interior said that five “terrorists” were killed during an “anti-terrorism” operation in the region. Russian president Vladimir Putin said the Ukrainian military operation was a “crime” by Kiev against its own people and warned of consequences. The video here, filmed by Polish journalist, Pawe Pienie, shows a pro-Russian checkpoint in Khrestyshche, outside Slovyansk. Gunshots are fired as forces stop an oncoming vehicle.
