We lost four men killed and nine wounded in the battles at Saur-Mohyla and areas close to it, journalist and soldier of the 5th Battalion of the Ukrainian Volunteer Corps " Pravyi Sector" Olena Bilozerska writes in her LiveJournal, Censor.NET informs.
"I just cannot explain what it is like to be there. I actually was near Saur-Mohyla for only one and a half days but it was enough. I was left at the Ukrainian army checkpoint in Amvrosiivka at the beginning, which was like an island on the enemy territory. There were battles around every day so that the situation was uneasy. I was on duty with Ukrainian troops checking cars. The guys, who became my friends during a change, were brought wounded the next day. They were lucky if they were just wounded. There was hell at that time near Saur-Mohyla. Our troops managed to capture it and go inside at night of August 8.
Ребята из Украинского Добровольческого корпуса, наши ребята из Правого сектора, в настоящее время получили задание удерживать село Степановку и освобождать от противника окрестные села. Первой маленькой группе, во главе с Дмитром Ярошем, удалось сразу попасть в Степановку, и они остались там в окружении. Остальные наши бойцы почти без приключений доехали до села Петровское и застряли в окружении там.
