"Several hours after the seizure of the Sloviansk town police department, the mayor of Sloviansk held talks with armed representatives of the Donbas Volunteers Militia and started reassuring the town residents. There is no threat to the town residents, Nelya Shtepa said. The occupiers are on the people's side, they are showing their disagreement with the Kyiv authorities," according to slavgorod.com.ua, a local portal.
Shtepa also asked citizens not to provoke the armed people in camouflage to avoid scuffles.
