Ukraine: mass bombing of Slavyansk by Junta, Nazis try to seize nuclear reactor

Webguerrillero[es], citing Interfax, reports brutal shelling of residential and central areas of the city of Slavyansk, half-way between Donetsk and Kharkov.

Relatedly there are intense combats in the area of the Zevs-Keramika manufacture and apparently also in the city center, as well as in the outskirts of the besieged city.

There are no victim figures yet but the fact that housing areas are being bombed probably implies many civilian casualties. 

According to the Mayor of Slavyansk, Vyacheslav Ponomariov, the attackers suffered at least 650 casualties, as well as many injured and captured personnel, only between the 2 and 12 of May. They also lost eight helicopters, a Hummer vehicle, three cannons, six light tanks and four tanks.
