Over night, most of the attacks were on the Maritime line; 120-mm mortars and an armed BMP were fired on Ukrainian positions at Novogrigoryevka; 82-mortars were fired on Chermalyk and heavy machine guns were fired near Maryinka. An armed BMP, anti-tank grenaes and heavy machine guns fired on Vodyanoye; grenade-launchers and small arms were fired near Shirokino, Talakovka and Pavlopol. Near Talakovka and Vodyanoye, snipers were active.
“People are in shock. Of course none of these draftees will go willingly to the front, but a fact remains a fact, they decided to blacken civilians, and later use that as a chip in negotiations.”
The Ukrainian military uploaded a video showing a half dozen homes damaged in Avdeyevka by shelling yesterday, April 17, as we reported.
