"The shelling of Armed Forces of Ukraine positions from the side of Russia was committed near the village of Hryhorivka in the Amvrosiivka district in the Donetsk region on July 23, which killed three Ukrainian soldiers and wounded 22. The intercepted telephone conversation of one of the militants with the terrorists' leader Igor Girkin (Strelkov) suggests that the insurgents requested the Russian side to back them up by shelling the Ukrainian Armed Forces position. Girkin says to his interlocutor experiencing shortage of ammunition that if the Russian side "won't even them (the Ukrainian servicemen) with the soil we're just going to retreat then," the report says.
