There are the enemy’s mortars firing at our territory. Yesterday our checkpoints were swept with all the possible shotguns, today the shooting is occasional. We are waiting. The Army, the National Guard, Donbas battalion. As a commander, I’m with the guys; we are ready to repel the attack,” – says deputy of the “Samopomich” faction, commander of the “Donbas” battalion Semen Semenchenko.
