    After Minsk: Will Peace Come to Ukraine? (1049)

    Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko will gather a War Cabinet on July 13 following the shootout in the western Mukachevo, Ukrainian Presidential Press Secretary Svyatoslav Tsegolko said Monday.

    KIEV (Sputnik) — Earlier on Saturday, the Right Sector began protests in several Ukrainian cities, including Kiev and Lviv after the movement members exchanged fire with police in the Ukrainian southwestern city of Mukachevo.

    "The events in Mukachevo will be the main theme of a War Cabinet, which the president will hold on Monday. Let me remind you that the War Cabinet is a working body of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine," Tsegolko wrote in his official account on Facebook.

    At least three people died and about 10 were injured as a result of the shootout, according to the Ukrainian security forces estimates.

    Події в Мукачево стануть головною темою Військового кабінету, який Президент проведе у понеділок. Нагадаю, що Військовий кабінет є робочим органом РНБО.
