Official: Ukrainian military launches air strikes

Global News

KYIV, Ukraine – A Ukrainian official says the military has launched an air strike on gunmen who have occupied the airport in the eastern capital of Donetsk.

Vladislav Seleznyov, a spokesman for Kyiv’s anti-terrorist operation, wrote on his Facebook account that the military presented an ultimatum earlier this afternoon to unknown armed men who had occupied the airport to lay down the arms.

He said the gunmen didn’t comply and the military launched an air strike.

Hundreds of pro-Russian militia have seized government buildings and fought Ukrainian troops for weeks as their leaders have declared independence.
