Explosions heard in Slavyansk, reports of fighting

Explosions heard in Slavyansk, reports of fighting
Military action has reportedly resumed in the town of Slavyansk in Ukraine’s Donetsk Region, with local residents reporting on social media loud explosions and a large number of signal bombs in the sky.

At least one self-defense activist was wounded as fighting resumed between Kiev forces and self-defense units, Hromadske TV reported, citing local residents.

"[There was a] very strong blast - it was heard in the center [of the town]. Windows are shaking on Artema Street," one local said on social media.

“At 21:00 local time the battle began in Andreevka. The junta has artillery and is shelling from its positions on Mount Karachun. At the same time, Kiev troops delivered a blow from behind Semyonovka,” the self-defense forces of the People’s Republic of Donetsk told Politnavigator.net.

“The blast was so powerful...that I thought lightning struck a fence nearby,” one resident wrote.
