From what I gather from Twitter there is some confusion however it seems like Russian media are making a mountain out of a mole hill and trying to overstate what's currently going on. Western media are not reporting this from what I've seen. What is true is that something is going on!

@juliamacfarlane: Have been mixed reports coming out of #Soledar all evening of gunmen taking over checkpoints. However only #Russia media seem to be there
Tells you all you need to know...

And Russian source


Now there is claims from #Euromaidan that separatists take over city hall in #Stahanov #Стаханов that info cannot be validated & likely FAKE

Ukrainian source


#Ukraine's interior minister has played down standoff near arms depot in #Sloviansk as well. We're trying to get more info

@PaulaSlier_RT: The #Ukrainian army has a barracks nearby, they're meant to be guarding weapons in the Salt mines - crowd banging on gate to barracks

@PaulaSlier_RT: Gunmen were dressed in black, "with US weapons" - no insignia on clothing - people here believe they were from #NationalGuard

@PaulaSlier_RT: @berbaugh we were the only crew here - but another russian station arrived a short time ago
Honestly, it isn't because RT are a propaganda machine, but there is something very odd about this incident and how quick RT were on scene.

And that the reason, I have not gone to sleep yet. Its 1.13AM.
Now around 200-300 people are banging on the gates of the army baracks and they have barricaded themselves inside.

counter argument -

Why should Ukraine continue to supply resources to an enemy occupied region? Russia invaded / annexed. Russia should be responsible for those areas now.



The problem with acts like these they don't have any impact on an enemy, they almost always harm the people caught up in the middle of these conflicts.

It can also backfire if people suffer from it.


people suffer?

Can people suffer when their energy supply is shut off?

Ive noticed people have issues with the water yet don't seem to even remotely care that Russia went down that road with Ukraine and by extension Europe by stopping gas flows.

People have a choice -
Either Russian and Ukraine actions are both equally bad or they both are equally acceptable.

I've got an awful feeling that something's going to happen tonight which may tip the balance of things and 'cause' Russia to invade. With their fighter jets breaching Ukrainian airspace 10 times in 2 days that suggests to me they are getting ready to invade and may have been testing radar and Ukraine's anti-aircraft missiles or lack off.

Outside the army baracks i guess near the salt mines.


Crowd burning tyres and shouting 'Glory to Donbas'

Usually night times are more quite here. No activity takes place. Sometimes a grenade etc which receives no coverage before 8 or 9 am next day. But in this case RT started covering right when it started. Could be nothing but lets see.
