At night, Slavyansk (Artema, Tselinny, Severny), Nikolaevka, Kramatorsk were subjected to intensive shelling. A lot of destruction and wounded among the civilian population, gas pipes were killed. There are no casualties among the militia.
In the morning, Kramatorsk bombed aviation the enemy. I don’t know the results yet - there is no connection with Kramatorsk.
Half an hour ago, "Grad" again fired Nikolayevka. On the victims find out.
There are battles near Donetsk - ukry went there on the offensive, which had long been prepared. There is no connection either.
There is evidence that ukry tanks went on the offensive to Seversk.
To us tanks, artillery and infantry. They will also prepare for the assault.
Ukry fired artillery Piskunovku-a small village, where there was no and there is no our garrison (it is in the "neutral" territory). There are numerous fires. The most interesting thing is that a couple of days ago the residents there took to the streets and did not allow our militiamen to pass - such as "get out of here - so that they would not shoot at us." Ours did not equip positions there. Did not help.

The message of the eyewitness from Kramatorsk
Killed 3 retiree.
The consequences of the morning shelling of Kramatorsk. Again, the long-suffering 17 district experienced the punishing hand of ATO. For some kind of smoke break on Karachun they decided that there was a militia base on one of the streets of the sleeping area. Where and put a dozen shells. A direct hit to the apartment of the second floor completely destroyed it, the ceiling collapsed and the floor seemed to have failed. In the neighboring houses flew glass. At this moment, a minibus was moving along the street, the projectile exploded in 2 meters from it. I personally saw 3 dead, all retired, by age over 60 years. Another elderly woman took the ambulance. The dead, according to people living in the area, are 7 people.
Now the Ukrainian army can boast of another victory over the "separatists" of old age.

Commentary by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia on civilian casualties in Eastern Ukraine
The leadership of Ukraine continues to assert that the Ukrainian security forces, conducting the so-called anti-terrorist, and, in fact, punitive operation in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, do not allow themselves to use force against civilians and that they, allegedly, never shoot residential areas.
However, the real facts show the opposite. As a result of the regular shelling of cities and towns by the units of the armed forces of Ukraine, the National Guard, various territorial gangs, including the Right Sector, there are numerous casualties among the civilian population.
Recall in this regard, the criminal aviation shelling 2 June this year. By plane of the Air Forces of Ukraine of the building of Lugansk regional state administration, as a result of which 8 people were killed, 28 were injured.
Here are just a few other examples. 13 June this year artillery shelling of the suburbs of Slavyansk - settlements Semenovka, Cherevkovka and Khimik injured more than 10 civilians. 15-year-old girl died in Cherevkovka. 17 June this year near the village of Mirny, near Lugansk, the correspondent of the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company Igor Korneluk and sound producer Anton Voloshin came under mortar attack from the Ukrainian security forces. I. Kornelyuk received a mortal wound and died in hospital. A. Voloshin died on the spot. On the same day, in the village of Vostochny (a suburb of Slavyansk), 3 civilians were killed in a shelling from the Uragan volley fire. 19 June this year The Resurrection Church in Slavyansk was shelled by Ukrainian security officials, and a church watchman was killed. 29 June this year in the Donetsk region as a result of the shelling by the Ukrainian military, the operator of the Russian First Channel Anatoly Klyan was fatally wounded.
Unfortunately, already in the first hours after the failure of 30 June this year. official Kiev from the cease-fire the number of victims among the civilian population has increased.
Throughout the night and morning of July 1 this year. Intensive shelling of peaceful cities and settlements from the heavy artillery continues. In the city of Kramatorsk, Donetsk region, a route minibus came under fire from the Ukrainian security forces. 4 people died, 5 injured.
That is the truth. And you can not hide it. For crimes against the civilian population will have to answer.
We demand from the Ukrainian authorities to abandon the shelling of peaceful cities and villages of their state, to return to a real, and not imaginary, cease-fire in order to save people's lives.
1 July 2014 year

Comments and answers from Igor Ivanovich Strelkov
"In Kramatorsk, another 2 passenger of a broken bus died - a total of 6 + 4 people were injured in it.
The enemy is concentrating against us and Kramatorsk. "
- News on Lente: Ukrainian artillery crushed the militia training camp under Slavyansk, killing more than 250 people. With reference to the Ukrainian site. True or not?
I.I .: “Of course, it is not true! Not a camp was crushed, but a group of camps. It was not 250 that perished, but 2500 militiamen! The wounded — three times more ... The militia runs, throwing dozens of tanks and airplanes, and the mercenaries-terrorists go to the polls ATO ".
- about Donetsk:
I. I .: "Yes, in Donetsk forever -" then diarrhea, then scrofula. "Honestly, I have long been tired of hearing any news from there - they are constantly negative and completely about swarms, squabbles and" sharing the skin of an unkilled bear. " in the face of an attacking enemy, this is “the very thing.” We will not interfere. Personally, I don’t give a damn about who’s going to be in Donetsk’s “main”, if only there was ONE main. Although Bes, even Khodokovsky, even someone else. Medvedchuk somehow completely disagree ...
To bring order to Donetsk, we need another battalion (along with me). To remove such forces from the front is impossible. In addition, "restoring order" will result again in shooting and quarreling. And the consequences for the DPR will be the most negative both on the military and on the foreign policy front. "

Review of the combat situation for July 1
As it was supposed, the morning information attack for the most part turned out to be pure propaganda. Well, the punishers do not have so much strength to create what their hacks are attributed to them. So:
Donetsk The attack on Karlovka ended with the destruction of 2 tanks and the retaliatory punishment. Looks like an attempt to unlock Donetsk airport. As if the easiest operation in a way to achieve "victory." But a dead end strategically. This will absorb some of the forces of the ATO to ensure the corridor. And the Donetsk DPR garrison will be involved in battles. Before that, they behaved passively in relation to the punishers of the ATO. And this is from 2 to 5 thousands of fighters. There is a sweep of the regional Interior Ministry (militia).
Snowy According to the militia shot down (according to the junta only shot down) Su-25. There was no attack. Shelling only.
Slavyansk. Shooters reports that the punitive attack is being prepared. But while it is not.
Lugansk. So far, only shelling.
Rubezhnoye-Lysychansk-Severodonetsk. So far, too, only shelling.
"Izvarino". Mortar shelling. Two wounded. It looks like saboteurs.
"Dolzhansky". How was neutral, so it is. One BTR exploded. But, apparently, they are preparing the passage of the column, because they are trying to demine the territory.
That is, we see a large media average. Yes, the artillery works for the whole. But aviation, while trying to intervene, received a rebuff. Few real action. On the assault is not yet similar. More like creating an appropriate media image. But, as they say, it is not over yet.
PS And yes. Taki tower on Karachun shot down. Trifle, but somehow symbolic.
Yesterday at 17: 06
Message from the militia:
The artillery of the junta continues shelling the suburbs of Severodonetsk, as well as at the checkpoint at Shchedrishchevo. The batteries deployed in the Varvarovka area are firing. Under fire came a residential building on the street. Lomonosov 21 in Severodonetsk.

And reports about hundreds of militants killed, as already noted by someone, are needed to:

- to report on "overpowering", with the occasional encouragement of shanny military leaders. "

Comments from I. I. Strelkova
[About Saur-grave] “Prapor” is commanding there - my close friend and ally since Transdniestria.
[About downed dryers] I’m not sure of either 1, 2 or 3, because I’m not reporting anything shot down today (if anything, I’m only responsible for what is written HERE on the forum, and not on some other resources, often writing "on my behalf"). Knocked or damaged, they were not on our site. Accordingly, I have no right to comment. APU confirmed damage to one machine - it means that at least one is really damaged.
VSU promptly confirm their losses only when they can not be hidden. With helicopters, this is the most difficult thing, but even here they “squeezed” a couple, as I truly know. If the militia failed to observe the crash of the plane, they would not say anything about it. As with the infantry - they lose killed every day, but only recently they began to voice significantly lower numbers of losses.

Comment from Igor Ivanovich Strelkov
“I can’t leave Slavyansk - it so happened that after the departure of the militia’s resilience it’s impossible (for now) to vouch, and we don’t give up our“ fortress ”in any case. We’re not too sweet here, but people have already gained experience, there is armament (although ukrov has superiority many times over all positions.) So you will have to rely on yourself and your commanders in everything.
But I still believe that Russia will come to the rescue at a critical moment. It gives us all endurance. I hope that the understanding of the need for intervention will still come before our units are ground in unequal battles.
And I beg you - hold on! Ukry does not seek to die. They are slow and indecisive, slow and unstable. And the abundance of technology in their hands often hinders them more than helps. "
