"At such times you need to go to the shelter, but they began to return fire. Ensued artillery duel," - said Bochkala.

As a result, half an hour after the beginning of the attack, the fire failed to quell/stop the separatist fire.

VIDEO Today Karachun shelling and fire response Ukrainian gunners. They are the real heroes. And though they say "heroes do not die." But they die. They are dying every day and maimed. And never see their children, wives and parents. But the word "war" is more than I can not describe it. Another spin on the word "betrayal". And the word "truce" is no longer in my vocabulary.

Strelkov’s (Rebel Commander at Slovyansk) version of this incident:

About 13:00, an intense mortar exchange took place between our positions at Semyonovka and the stronghold of the enemy enemy support positions near the Vostochniy settlement. It is unclear who began the confrontation (I was told that the enemy is responsible. However, I do not preclude the possibility that our fighters could not refuse the temptation to conduct strikes against yet another ammunition supply column that was travelling along the highway).

In the course of the skirmish, the enemy engaged its a mortar company and a howitzer battery at the rear. From our side, we used the “many times destroyed” Nona (2S9 Nona – a 120mm self-propelled mortar). In addition, a group of our fighters advanced toward the checkpoint and worked it over with an AGS (AGS-17 “Plamya” grenade launcher) A number of mortar nests were destroyed, Ukies certainly suffered casualties. However, the shelling of Semyonovka by the enemy has not stopped.

The enemy is transferring more and more NazGuard detachments to our area. Perhaps they think that they can convince the “svidomye” (Maidanites) to attempt an assault on the city. Frank speaking, I would not try in their place. However, perhaps one of the goals of this war is the maximum possible “utilization” (I.e. -elimination) of Maidanites? If so – then yes. An assault makes sense in this case.
