KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's Right Sector nationalists denied playing any role in a gunfight in Slaviansk, eastern Ukraine, early on Sunday in which at least two people were killed. They blamed Russian special forces for being behind the attack.
"It is a blasphemous provocation from Russia: blasphemous because it took place on a holy night for Christians, on Easter night. This was clearly carried out by Russian special forces," Artem Skoropadsky, a spokesman for Right Sector, told Reuters.
