TASS reports:

KIEV, July 11. /TASS/. Two people were killed and eight wounded as the right-extremist Right Sector organisation, banned in Russia, attacked a gym and a traffic police station in Ukraine’s Mukachevo in Transcarpathia, the local media reported on Saturday.

“Firing continues in Mukachevo. Two were killed, eight wounded,” the local media reported. “The police have circled the city.”

Some reports say the Right Sector militants attacked a gym, owned by a local legislator – Mikhail Lanyo. The extremists in several off-road vehicles came to the building and opened fire from a machine gun installed on a car’s roof. Two people were killed.

“A fight continues now near the Krasna Gorka along the Kiev-Chop highway,” Seven Days. Uzhgorod reports.

Besides, residents say about a fire at a gas filling station near an exit from the city.
