“Two years have passed and two years ago on this square in 12: 00 you reported to me about the liberation of the city. A grenade launcher with a "fly" jumped out of the entrance of this house, trying to convince us that they would still attack the peaceful rally, and was destroyed. This was the end of the fascist Russian occupation of captured Slavyansk ", - said the president.
