In Slovyansk, "green men" like those seen at the beginning of the Russian occupation of Crimea, captured Hromadske TV and Lenta.ru journalists and forbade them to work in the town, highlighting events under control of the region's Ministry of Internal Affairs and other protests.
This was reported to Ukrayinska Pravda by the journalists themselves. According to the journalists, the armed men in Slovyansk who took the regional Ministry of Internal Affairs, Donetsk Oblast office in Slovyansk, captured them as soon as they approached the territory of the building.
"They led us into the police department and patted us down," stated the journalists.
After some time they were released from the grounds, forbidden to work, and threatened. According to media, the journalists stated that the armed people who took the MIA building do not resemble "green men" and "are not Russian special forces.
Together with that, they said that a soldier who patted the press men down stated that the police department of Slovyansk was taken by self-defence from Crimea, and that he himself came from Moscow region.
Spetznaz? They’re like UFO aliens.
If these guys are Russian regulars, I’m Chuck Norris.
Funny, the locals have always called it Slavyansk.
No, Putin started calling them “little green men” when he claimed these militants were in Crimea. REALLLY IRONIC, since he sent them without military identification!!!
Remember this was one of his more bold faced lies. He said they were local militia who must have bought their uniforms in a store. That’s Putin, a cynical lying gangster statesmen. Why anyone would be a Putinista is beyond common decency.
W: You talkin’ about my ol’ buddy, Pooty-Poot?
