A fight between two men turned into a brutal showdown, which ended up in knife wounds for a policeman. According to Kyiv Operatyvny outlet, the incident occurred at Mechnykova street in Kyiv on Friday morning.

The conflict kicked off when a former fighter of Ukrainian government forces in Donbas heard another man loudly praising Russia-backed militants. The two men took it to the yard; after a brief conversation, the supporter of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic called his sidekicks. They attacked the Donbas veteran who suffered blunt-force trauma to the head; he defended himself with a knife, as ‘the forces were unequal – twelve on one’, Kyiv Operatyvny wrote.  

The police patrol arrived at the scene. The knife wielder – drunk, like the rest of the fighters – resisted arrest and wounded a policeman. All thirteen were detained and taken to police precinct.
