The second footage shows that there were two armed persons in the session hall:
A scuffle broke out virtually at the very beginning of the meeting when the agenda was being voted after the members of the Right Sector encircled the rostrum and lawmaker Tetiana Belaia called on to overthrow the incumbent local authorities.
According to eyewitnesses, two shots were fired after the activists doused a city council member Oleksandr Rybakov with kefir and threw green dye over Mayor Andrii Fisak. The first shot was fired in the air while the second one was made at the activists. It was Rybakov who used his handgun.
