Message from militiaman with the call sign “Sych”.

Today the situation worsened both on Bakhmutka and near Stanitsa Luganskaya. On Bakhmutka there were 50 attacks in the night and today. It’s almost a record, and a day has not yet passed. AFU began active offensive orders after passive ones. That is, there is the phase 2 of the readiness for attack. In addition, the AFU deployed almost all their artillery and it is ready to strike. In SPGs, MLRS and howitzers can be this state for 2-3 weeks. Still, it shows a willingness to strike. Militia moved up tanks and armored fighting vehicles from the nearby rear (where are almost all tanks and armored fighting vehicles). In Stanitsa and the surrounding area the artillery was placed in a small amount before. But there were MLRS “Smerch” and SPGs “Akatsia”. Now a few dozen units of SPGs Akatsia, Gvozdika, NONA, Giatsint, Pion, MSTA-S, etc. came there, they were based in Belovodsk and the surrounding area before. What are these self-propelled guns for? Obviously for suppressing militia positions with strong and dense art. fire and then moving to the front line to Lugansk and starting to level it with the ground again. I think the command would decide this issue and interfere.
