A National Guard conscript in Ukraine has shot dead five people and injured another five in the eastern city of Dnipro, the interior ministry says.

The 20-old-year man opened fire as guard members were being issued weapons at the Pivdenmash aerospace plant at 01:40 GMT on Thursday.

The soldier – named as Artemiy Ryabchuk – is now on the run with a Kalashnikov assault rifle. Police have launched a search operation in the city.


The motive for the attack is unclear.

One of the victims was a female member of Ukraine’s National Guard, the interior ministry says.

Pivdenmash – known as Yuzhmash during its Soviet period – is a state-owned plant that produces and tests material related to aeronautics and defence.
