    Fourteen Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in a helicopter crash near the city of Slavyansk in the Donetsk Region, according to the acting president of Ukraine, Aleksandr Turchinov.

    Anti-government protesters in Slavyansk have downed a Ukrainian forces helicopter in the south-east of Slavyansk in the Donetsk region.

    Fourteen servicemen, including a major-general, Vladimir Kulchitsky, have have been killed in a helicopter crash near Slavyansk, according to the acting president of Ukraine, Aleksandr Turchinov, who spoke at a parliamentary session in Kiev.

    Kulchitsky, 51, was the head of the department of Combat and Special training in Ukraine’s National Guard.

    Meanwhile, Ukraine’s National Guard reported 12 dead: six servicemen, including the helicopter crew and six members of the Berkut forces.

    Ukraine’s army has started shelling the eastern Ukraine cities of Slavyansk and Kramatorsk, thereby resuming its massive military operation in the East of the country, local news outlets report.

    “A full-scale military operation has begun in Kramatorsk and Slavyansk. BM-21 launch vehicle “Grad” are being used,” Donbas-based Ostrov agency says.

    “Intensive shooting has been heard in the region, and thick black smoke seen,” he added.

    Meanwhile, Itar-Tass has reported that fighter jets have been flying over the city of Kramatorsk in the Donetsk Region. “The hospitals were told to evacuate patients from the upper floors,” said a representative from the self-defense forces.

    On Wednesday a school and a kindergarten were shelled in Slavyansk. In the kindergarten at least 9 civilians were injured, including a 4-year old boy.

    A teacher from the targeted school said that the shell exploded right above the school hall, where children are usually gathered for festive events, and part of the roof “was simply blown away.” Luckily, no children were in the hall at the time. All the pupils and teachers were quickly evacuated to the basement.

    Heroes killed by terrorist thugs while serving their nation.

    RIP Soldiers.


    @Aeronaut @WebMaster ...is it really necessary for @senheiser to spam the European section every time a helicopter is downed,a shell falls,some separatists are killed,etc? I mean we have the Ukr discussion thread and he's flooding this section.

    I am happy that these terrorists and traitors to ukraine and stooges of NATO are paying. I hope in coming months ,days Putin deploys a no fly zone over east ukraine. A few S-300's/S-400's will do the job. But what these oiligarchs are doing is disgusting.

    They were illegally trespassing in the Federal State of New Russia. Soldiers who do not leave will be killed.
