A witness of Andrei Stenin death provided details of the tragedy, 05.08.2015, RIA.ru. Full details still unclear, estimated 20 civilian cars were destroyed and those inside killed.Bodies are still not fully identified, and no full list of those who died. Opolchenie member "Boroda" saw Stenin right before his death. He came from Snezhnoe to Dmitrovka, which was under threat of being surrounded by Ukraine. He returned back by the same road, but by then it was taken over by Ukrainian national guard who shot any car driving on that road. Among others interviewed, Maria Zolotous, whose husband was killed. She was wounded but escaped to a nearby village and survived. Another couple , Mr and Mrs Sudakov were killed on the 'road of death', like Stenin.
