SOT, Graham Phillips, RT reporter (in English): "So in the background we can see ... So if you look just behind me in the background you can see the Ukrainian army here that they're driving off, cause what's happened here in the outskirts of Slavyansk, is that they attacked this checkpoint here very recently, just a few hours ago. It's burning around us, there's no sign of anti-Kiev activists, reports of fatalities in that side, of casualties. The Ukrainian army ... This man shouting at me now is saying that they've come ... OK, come and speak to camera.

SOT, Local man (in Russian): "Those who just left the checkpoint are fucking jackals. They robbed us - they took our food, medicine. They just looted the place! Hey, Turchynov, feed them. Turchynov, what the fuck? Feed them, you motherfucker! Your troops are fucking starving."

SOT, Graham Phillips, RT reporter (in English): "So it's an emotional scene here in the outskirts of Slavyansk with this checkpoint that's been here for over a week now, destroyed, in flames, there's no sign of anti-Kiev activists as I said, and the Ukrainian army have just driven off at high speed."

Ukraine: Locals storm RT report, accuse troops of stealing food

Locals joined RT reporter Graham Phillips on camera to accuse the Ukrainian army of stealing food from their self-defence checkpoint, in Slavyansk on Thursday.

They called on the Rada-appointed interim president Oleksander Turchynov to feed the troops, who he said were "jackals" left starving by the government.
