"One of the National Guard soldiers died. It has just been reported that a National Guard soldier died in hospital No. 17 from a bullet wound in the heart. The instigators did not limit with grenades and used firearms to shoot stealthily.
The dead soldier was only 25 years old. He is from the Kherson region. He was a conscript from the spring draft.
I express my condolences to the relatives and friends of the hero, who honestly performed his duty. The killers will be found and punished!"
Later, the Interior Minister Arsen Avakov wrote that it was not a bullet wound, but from a shrapnel.
