According Sementchenko, fighting continued in the city: "I'm always in touch with the commanders and fighters. Now the guys, together with a company of infantry are really as the 300 Spartans. They are no 300 of them:(. Constant bombardment by Grad, mortars, AGS ( automatic grenade launchers ). The key points of the terrorists have already been shot a lot, that is why a large number wounded. We are in the left side of the city, while in the right one there is almost twice the amount of the militants. Judging by the captured ones, more than half fo them are staff officers and soldiers of the Russian Federation. Some are not even in plain clothes, but in military uniform. They are not just individually scattered in separate divisions, but they are operating in separate platoons, thus it is a real military invasion."
"Today, along with the brothers of the Dnipropetrovsk, who were not afraid to enter Ilovaisk, the guys have begun to mop up the surrounding neighborhoods. Fighting is conducted with increasing ferocity, apparently in this city we have groped the key hidden weak spot of the Donetsk terrorists, sometimes we even grapple. Yesterday we repeled the last tank attacks, there is nothing to be afraid of, they burn like candles .... " the battalion commander said.
"We will win, because no land is better than Ukraine for us. This is our homeland and that's it. Glory to Ukraine," Sementchenko concluded.
