According to him, there were “Azov” and “Aidar” (terrorist organizations banned in Russia), and other units, and the agency’s interlocutor, along with the neighbors, were in the basement.
The neighbor’s warehouse was used by the family as a shelter, its roof was lined with plastic. Apparently, due to the shelling, a fire started, plastic panels caught fire. “My friend, a neighbor, wanted to open the door, they didn’t let him, they started shooting at the door. That is, a burst from a machine gun,” Piskunov said.
At the same time, he specified that his neighbor’s wife is disabled. In order not to suffocate, people wrapped their faces in wet towels and lay on the ground. The man made another attempt to open the door, asking the Ukrainian soldiers to take a breath. However, the shelling began again. “It’s good that the iron gate is made of thick metal,” added the agency’s interlocutor.
It was previously reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine were “taped” from sheltered residents of Artemovsk with tear gas and smoke bombs. According to local residents, the Ukrainian army wanted to take the civilians away or shoot them.
