Reconnaissance Men Were the First
On July 5, 2014, the warriors-reconnaissance men raised Ukrainian flag over Sloviansk city council. The same day, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and vanguard forces of the National Guard entered Kramatorsk. Reconnaissance men and sappers were the first, followed by other military units.
While escaping, the occupants left huge arsenals of Russian-made weapons.
The liberation of the towns, which had been under the occupation for almost three months, became next victory for the Ukrainian warriors over the Russian occupation forces.
