had aimed to arrest suspects accused of robbery in Kiev and the surrounding area. A surveillance unit staking out a building placed two undercover in an empty, partially-constructed building next door. When an alarm in the empty building summoned regular police, the 2 undercover officers were mistaken for burglars and detained.

Surveillance saw their colleagues being loaded into a van and, evidently fearing the robbery gang was taking them hostage, attempted to rescue them by force. Shots were exchanged. The 3 robbery suspects nearby heard the gun battle and fled; they were arrested in Kiev. The trio was armed and face charges.

The dead are 2 undercover officers, 2 regular of the state security force, and a member of the special forces surveillance unit. President Petro Poroshenko has been briefed by a senior officer. Khatia Dekanoidze, former head of the nation’s police, said it was a “heartbreaking tragedy”.
