23:20 Message from an eyewitness:

Today (March 18 - Ed.) I observe the same pattern in Severodonetsk at 20:55 as yesterday: periodically flashing lights above the forest are seen at Kapitanovo-Muratovo (it was at least 5 times).
It certainly may not be MLRS, but then it is very difficult to explain why a glow around can be seen in the sky at a great distance in addition to fire. This, perhaps, would be similar to damaged and flaming gas pipeline. What can burn there, in one and the same place - it is not clear. But something is definitely powerful. Therefore, though, I tend to version of MLRS. If I had high-power binoculars, I could say something more definite. But this distance is too great for the eyes of an ordinary person to tell anything.
I will not be surprised if tomorrow they begin to "burn" again on schedule.

"Armistice" seems every day more and more strong...
