In the morning soldiers got an order to move out and engage people in Olginka. Soldiers has refused to engage local people. Later in the day “Privat-Bank” cars pulled up to check point. Several men without any insignias stepped out (presumably Right Sector or battalion Dnepr 1) and started shooting at soldiers.

It is not known whether there are any casualties among attackers. Among soldiers there’s at least 13 dead and 30 wounded.
