As I promised, it was 4 days of heavy fighting, then we were assaulted for 4 days by the fuckers Storm Z unit. This video displays, the first day, when we took a position near the village of Novoselivske, Luhansk region, Svatove direction. We held the important road there. This battle lasted about 15-20 minutes. Then I managed to stretch our fighters in positions and lines very well! We worked smoothly, very quickly, we had no losses that day (the losses came in the night from artillery shelling). On this video, we repelled the attack of the enemy with 2 killed and 4 wounded, the group was almost completely destroyed! We began suffering losses at night when we were shelled with mortars all night and we had lost (as wounded) 2 of my key fighters.
On the second day, the enemy tried to attack again and again failed. We managed to repel them in smaller numbers. 3 Russians were wounded. In the night on the second day again by artillery shelling and I again lost 2 soldiers as wounded. Too few of us were left, only 6 men, counting me.
On the third day the enemy attacked again, but they already carefully analyzed it and suffered smaller losses, one dead and one wounded and already. On the third night, we again suffered losses from artillery shelling. Unfortunately, one of my soldiers died immediately and the other was wounded in the knee.
There were only 4 of us were left counting me. Then another soldier from my reserve came to us, but the command did not give us reinforcements, and on the 4th day we they fought back as best we could, but the fuckers had already approached the trenches: they managed to shoot two of my soldiers point blank. Unfortunately they wounded one and killed another.
Me and Sparrow were left with alone. They forced to retreat to the dugout, but we fought back as best we could. We were throwing back grenades at them, until we ran out. They offered us to surrender, but we were not for that here to surrender! In order to avoid grenades in the dugout, I began to barricade ourselves with empty boxes so that the grenades would not fly towards us! But they managed to throw one f1 grenade over the barricades and it was only half a meter from me. The first thing I did was to shout “Grenade!” and turned away as much as possible!
After the explosion, I realized that I was alive, but my friend died. I immediately started shooting at the entrance of the dugouts, so that the enemy did not enter. At the same time, I realised that I had a fragment in my leg and in my thigh.
