Artillery and machine-gun fire was heard on the outskirts Slavyansk few minutes ago, reports correspondent of RIA Novosti on Wednesday night.
In the area of fodder plant, where the militia checkpoint is one can hear ordnance explosions.
In addition to that, machine gun fire can be heard as well as traces of bullets can be seen. Lately, Kiev units were firing Slavyansk at least once a day. The city is practically cut out of telephone, so it is not possible to contact the militia headquarters.
