For the “Episodes of War” project, the Ukrainian defender told a story that happened in January in Bakhmut. Then “Picasso” together with his brothers held defense in the private sector across the Bakhmutka River.

“The day began as always: nothing was explained to us and we were sent to the extreme positions (at that time we did not know that this was an extreme position) to reinforce the infantry of the adjacent brigade. Our detachment was divided into 2 parts of 3 men each and sent to different positions. We already got our bearings on the spot. In front of us across the garden were two unfinished two-story mansions that had already been occupied by the Russians. We followed them,” said Artur.

According to the soldier, that day turned out to be tense from the very morning. First, one of his brothers, “Taktika”, was asked to guide GURovtsev to one of the positions. And “Picasso” and “Apostol” were left without a walkie-talkie, and they kept in touch with their relatives through neighbors.

“The shelling began. On the first floor, a tank destroyed an entire room. In fact, our square was combed with mortars without stopping. On the second floor, where the “Apostol” was conducting surveillance, a missile from an anti-tank missile flew. It was lucky that it hit the neighboring window – this is what saved my brother The enemy, among other things, began to work on our structure with RPGs,” the defender recalled.

“After some time, we heard on the radio of the neighbors: “I was attacked!” “Sedoy” – the only fighter who remained to defend the neighboring position – came on the air. Our friends from the neighboring units “Chela” and “Karas” went to support to his brother. From that moment on, “Apostol” and I remained out of touch”, – said “Picasso”.

Fire was directed at the SSO fighters from all sides. From the right flank, they were disturbed by enemy machine gunners. At nine past six on the street where the “Picasso” positions were, the buildings were already on fire. But the defenders held their sectors and aimed fire at the enemy positions.

“We’re still out of touch and don’t know what’s going on around us. The thought has already begun to sneak up on me: “Haven’t we been surrounded yet?” sent “Bee” with “Karasem”, we heard screams. But we didn’t understand what was happening there. We didn’t understand whether we could help with anything or not,” admitted “Picasso”.

Unanimously with “Apostol”, the coach-artist made a decision so that it would not happen to keep the defense in its position. But just in case, Arthur looked for a possible way to retreat, because their ammunition was not infinite anyway.

“After some time, I heard someone shouting: “Picasso! Picasso!”. I understood that it was my own. It was the “Bee” that returned with the “Karasem” and “Sedym”. As it turned out later, all this intensive shelling was a cover for the Wagner assault group, which planned to enter to our position on the flank,” said the fighter.

But the Russian occupiers did not know about “Sedom”: “He did not hesitate, let about 10 Russians pass and began to shoot them from the rear. He killed three and wounded as many. And reinforcements were called to take away the trophy weapons. Yes, on that day, he was repulsed the first assault…”
