KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said on Friday a pilot had been killed and others wounded after pro-Russian separatists in the eastern town of Slaviansk used anti-aircraft missiles against Kiev's forces.
On his Facebook page, Avakov posted: "Against Ukraine's special forces, terrorists used heavy artillery, including grenade launchers and portable anti-aircraft missile launchers. One pilot is dead and there are wounded."
He accused the separatists of employing professional mercenaries.
