November 22, about 100 armed men entered and took control of Odessa oil refinery. According the security officers which were guarding the refinery armed men are part of Dnepr 1 and Dnepr 2 Ukrainian National Guard battalions.

“From their conversations we concluded that they have just returned from Donetsk where they were fighting local self-defense forces and they belong to either Dnepr 1 or Dnepr 2 battalion. Right now they are waiting for counterstrike; however, it is not clear from whom.” – said director of Odessa oil refinery Mark Epstein.
