Presidential candidate Petro Poroshenko has refuted the mass media’s claims about National Guard fighters handing in their weapons at the demand of the terrorists seizing the Luhansk Regional Administration in a facebook post.

 
Some mass media have spread not accurate information about the National Guard fighters from Vinnitsya handing in their weapons during the attack of separatists on the Luhansk Regional Administration. Indeed, 150 National Guards were blocked inside the building. 

I contacted the commander by phone. It turns out that under pressure of physical violence the separatists demanded the guards give in their weapons. But NOT ONE guard had accepted the terrorists’ demands and DID NOT HAND IN THEIR ARMS!
Having received an order to retreat, they had broken through the encirclement and now are situated in one of the zones of the Luhansk Oblast under National Guard control.
