MAY 26, SLAVYANSK
This evening, in the Artyom District in Slavyansk, civilians were shot dead. In the morgue, there are the bodies of the Italian photographer Andrea Rocchelli and his interpreter Andrey Mironov, who died Saturday in Andreevka. As far as I know we are the few foreigners in the city, and we're awfully concerned—not even sure we can leave the city safely. The news from Donetsk is very serious: the airport was bombed by fighter jets. I've received the news that the Kiev Government has decided to use the "Hurricane" Multiple Rocket Launcher—two of them have already been placed. It seems they want to clean up the whole South-East with a single blow. They will start the day after tomorrow at the same time everywhere in Slavyansk, Kramatorsk, Donetsk and Lugansk.
