Blockade participants say police opened fire near Kostiantynivka checkpoint while the convoy was trying to enter ATO zone. This was reported on Facebook by Laura Lytvynenko, who was the part of this event.
After a while blockade participants managed to get through police block by moving police vehicle out of the way.
"We were fired on! Kostiantynivka checkpoint. MP Taras Pastukh is here with us. They’re shooting in the air, threatening to shoot out our wheels," she wrote.
According to her, the vehicles of blockade participants were stopped by police and they were prohibited to enter because of illocal registration numbers.
As the police claim, warning shots were made after blockade members used tear gas against policeman. He was reportedly hospitalized with eye burns.
Police reported that blockade participants moved protective structure and tried to remove police vehicle from the road.
