Editor's Note: Early on May 2, an anti-terrorist operation initiated by the Ukrainian government resumed in Sloviansk, a Donetsk Oblast city of 125,000 people that has been occupied by Russian-backed armed insurgents since April 12. The insurgents also hold administrative buildings in more than a dozen other cities in Donetsk Oblast and in Luhansk. The anti-terrorist operation that aims to liberate the east resumed on April 22 after it had been suspended for several days due to an April 17 Geneva agreement to de-escatate the situation reached by Ukraine, Russia, the European Union and the United States.
