Summary and comments from I. I. Strelkova
“The waterways in the Severodonetsk canal, broken by artillery, through which the water flowed to Slavyansk and Kramatorsk flowed by the artillery.” Now the city is completely without water. The wells will not be able to provide a still large population.
In the center of Kramatorsk again works "Hurricane".
- And what's the point in capturing Slavyanka?
I. I .: “Well, at least to try to destroy the most combat-ready militia units ... And to eliminate, so to speak, the banner. By the way, the city is heavily bombarded with heavy artillery. Apparently, they completely see the meaning.”
- Igor Ivanovich, the problem is that only a few percent of the brave ones are fighting on the land of New Russia. Where are the others? Do they drink beer? Rub your pants on the couches? Is it worth it for the sake of these "citizens" to shed the blood of Russian volunteers?
I. I .: "Tell me, if your brother, who is attacked by a hefty gangster, does not have enough courage to give change, you will stand by and complain:" well, why help you - are you such a coward? "
Here they kill old retired people who have worked all their lives for you. Here women are killed, who in any case cannot give the change to the murderers. "

EMERGENCY REPORT OF KRAMATORSKAYA VODOKANAL
Dear residents of Kramatorsk!
As a result of the continuation of hostilities, the work of the Seversky Donets-Donbass channel was again stopped.
In this regard, we draw your attention to the fact that, thanks to the availability of water supplies in the tanks, the city filtration station will continue to supply water to the central water supply system, but only until the evening of July 2.
We ask you to make a supply of drinking water in a timely manner and use it rationally.
Delivery of water to the distribution points will not be carried out yet. This is due to the fact that fueling vehicles requires significant financial costs.
Currently, the administration of the city of Vodokanal is negotiating with the company "Water of Donbass" for permission to produce water from the canal in the amount of 10 thousand cubic meters. meters per day. This minimum will allow at least in the evening to provide water to the central (most densely populated) part of the city.
We ask you to be conscious and allow the residents of the upper floors to stock up on water.
The situation is complicated. It is not related to the direct work of the Kramatorsk water utility. However, we apologize for any inconvenience.
We will promptly inform you about the change in the situation.

New interview with I. I. Strelkov
According to the commander of the militia of Donbass, in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk there are no sources of water supply other than wells.
The commander-in-chief of the Donbass militia, Igor Strelkov, said that after the Ukrainian army blew off the water supply, Slavyansk and Kramatorsk were in a state of humanitarian catastrophe. In the cities there are no sources of water supply, except for wells.
- On July 2, we suffered serious losses. The enemy continues to carry out the task set to him, - declared Strelkov. - The enemy attacked Nikolaevka with the support of a huge number of artillery, shells and tanks. The attacks were carried out both on the militia and on residential areas, as well as on the water conduit.
Kramatorsk and Slavyansk, provided from the destroyed conduit, were left without water. There is no longer an external source of supply, with the exception of wells, for cities.
“This is a humanitarian catastrophe,” Strelkov emphasized. - Apparently, in the framework of the fight against terrorism. Then we attacked Semenovka, there was a hard fight. We were bombarded by a hail of shells. There are dead, wounded. Losses are more than 10 people. Militias managed to knock out a tank. I think in the coming days the fighting in this direction will continue.
Strelkov noted that a civilian bus at Cherevkovka was subjected to shelling. He also stressed that the militia continue to fight in full encirclement.
- Help us wait for nowhere. We really understand that we have Russia, - said the head of the militia of Donbass. “If we lose, it will be a defeat not for a handful of militias, but for the Russian people.” The enemy uses against us new powerful artillery installations, but we will fight to the end.
The difficult situation with water supply has been lasting for a long time. On June 10, Vyacheslav Ponomarev was arrested and removed from the post of mayor of Slavyansk. He was detained for ten days due to his failure to fulfill his official duties. In particular, the mayor did not provide the citizens with water and light. Locals took water from wells or from wells.

Summary from Strelkov Igor Ivanovich
"In Kramatorsk, the militia suffered insignificant casualties today. But the civilian population got tough ... Wait for the refugees ... soon there will be hundreds of thousands at this rate of ATO ...
The village of Artyom was severely beaten. There are high-rise buildings there ... But the losses are relatively small: the shelling barely begins - people rush to basements and shelters. Therefore, those who came under fire at the very beginning of the shelling were killed and injured.
But on the positions today it was sad ... Especially in Semenovka and Nikolaevka. They beat from everything and a lot - from mortars and tank guns to howitzers, "Grada" and "Smerch" inclusive. If it were not for the deep trenches and dugouts, it would be very bad.
Today, two Muscovite volunteers were killed in Semenovka ... Just arrived.
Shell positions. It looks like Semenovka again. There, soon, “Stalingrad” can be removed ... except without high-rise buildings.
To represent the awards and fighters Brain. But so far, for obvious reasons (the blockade did not actually begin yesterday, it only became much more dense yesterday) the distribution of awards is difficult. Outside Slavyansk until the awards did not take place. "

Message from the militia of Slavyansk Alexander Zhuchkovsky
Today was the worst day of my life.
A new group of volunteers (except for two doctors), about which I wrote yesterday, and several local militias in the number of 14 people in the morning 10 left in a minibus from Slavyansk to Semenovka. On the way, the car was ambushed. From the forest, an enemy sabotage group began to fire at us, the number could not be determined. Almost on the move, we jumped out of the car and, shooting back, began to retreat to the territory of the former hospital complex.
Several people fired from behind the car, thus covering the group's departure. From the side of the enemy, the tank hit the car several times. Two died instantly and caught fire with the car. Four who managed to run away from the car at the time of the blows and the explosion, received shrapnel wounds of varying severity: a fragment shattered through the back and arm through, two more wounded on the hands and feet. One of the wounded was the detachment commander Oleg Melnikov, a fragment wounded his hand, he received a concussion. I got rid of bruises from falls and light contusion.
With the wounded (three were walking by themselves, the fourth was carried) retreated deep into the territory. After he continued to shoot the tank, they began to hit with mortars. We took shelter in the basement, rendered first aid to the wounded, called a car from Slavyansk and hospitalized it.
After taking the wounded, waiting for another car, they returned to the battlefield to pick up the bodies of the dead, or rather their remains. All this time, according to Semenovka, tanks and mortars beat. Therefore, the car had to be hidden near the battlefield. The burnt bodies and their fragments were laid on blankets and dragged about 300 meters to the car.
Not tank direct strikes are terrible, although it is very scary. Shelling is not terrible - we are used to them. It is terrible to collect dead comrades in parts under these attacks, the remains of which continue to burn, extinguish the burning blankets on which you carry the remains, and then ride with them in an open body through the whole city in front of civilians. Only a sense of duty to the dead helped us to do all this.
From Semenovka, the remains were taken to the morgue of Slavyansk. On the way to the city, a very dense rain saved us from new blows - at this time the artillery was silent.
The dead volunteers will be buried with honors on the Walk of Fame.
One of the dead, Vladimir, arrived yesterday as part of a group from St. Petersburg. It is not yet possible to identify the second (most likely also from Petersburg).
Oleg Melnikov during the day came to his senses. By evening, we talked about this tragedy and the situation in Slavyansk with Igor Strelkov. I will tell about this conversation later.
Yesterday I published a report on the expenditure of transfers for the needs of the Slavyansk militia and balances on our accounts. All balances will be spent on treating the victims and on helping the families of the victims. I also ask you to support these families, details are listed in my report yesterday: http://vk.com/wall-40399920_453515 (please make a note to the "families of the dead").
These are the first dead Russian volunteers, of whom I know, from among those whom I helped these month and a half. Later I will write the name of the second deceased, and with the consent of the relatives of their names.
These people are real heroes. On the first day of their arrival in Slavyansk, they performed a feat covering their comrades from enemy fire, and died in an unequal fight.

Comment militia Kramatorsk about the presence of the militia "Gradov"
"I will not decipher anything and explain it. Only a small remark is the range of the Grad rocket launcher with high-explosive fragmentation shells up to 40 km. Karachun in a straight line from Kramatorsk about 5-8 km (depending on where you shoot). How long would Karachun stand?
The statement about the “Grad” of the militias is made only in order to, after applying such a one in the city, again try to shove it to the “inept actions of terrorists”. Likewise, this was done when, after yet another shelling of the airport, ukry decided to shoot from the mortar, and the first shell landed straight into the ... kindergarten Katerinka. Fortunately, the actions were at night, and no one was hurt. But then there was talk in the city that this militia landed in the kindergarten. But here is one "but" - mortar shelling of the airfield was carried out from such a position that in order to get into the kindergarten, the mortar would have to be deployed under 90 degrees, and even that would hardly have happened. Those. the position was far ahead of the injured kindergarten. And on the airfield, by the way, ukry two Grad pulled, I saw myself. "
