Pro-Russian armed militians occupy official buildings in Slovyansk in East Ukraine. On thursday, 24th of April, five pro-Russian separatists were killed by Ukrainian troops, according to the Kiev government. Separatists say only two were killed. Few marks of fightings were visible on thursday night. The situation remains confused.

It's the first time Kiev's troops have used lethal force to take back territories from pro-Russian militias who have seized swathes of eastern Ukraine since April 6. Separatists proclaimed an independent "People's Republic of Donetsk" and have since occupied some official buildings in Slovyansk.

Russia has massed thousands of troops along the border.

My militia helped to make a database of everyone living here. There’s more than 300 families and each one has its number spray painted on the wall next to its home. We gave a copy of the database to the interior ministry but never heard anything back.’
