Ukraine’s armed forces entered the village of Sabivka in the Slovianoserbsk raion of the Luhansk Oblast, reports Ukrainska Pravda, Sunday, July 13, citing the local publication 0642 and eye witnesses.

“At one o’clock intensive shooting began. We went down into the cellar. Within two hours Ukrainian armed vehicles appeared. There were many of them. They did not spend much time here. They just looked around for 15 minutes and drove off along the Bila river. On the bridge over the river, they apparently joined up with another unit and went in the direction of Luhansk. Right now in the Yuvileinyi raion heavy explosions and shooting can be heard,” a local resident reported.

Meanwhile, terrorists are continuing to strafe Luhansk. According to local residents, there are casualties.

“Right now in Luhansk, in the Myrnyi quarter, there are around 6 craters, a damaged school, a woman killed on the second floor, a building on fire,” Luhansk resident Yuriy Kachaniuk reported.


As previously reported, shooting started around 13:00 in Luhansk. In the residential district near the southern neighborhood, firing from “Grad” installations was taking place.

Later, witnesses reported to the news agency that a battle began on July 13, around 17:00  in the villages of Rozkishne and Heorhiivka of the Lutuhin raion of the Luhansk Oblast. According to the witnesses, a unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, formerly stationed at the Luhansk airport, broke into this raion.
