The city had been under rebel control since April 12, 2014.   The military reports it destroyed a tank and four other armored vehicles during the overnight battle.  A spokesman for the National Security and Defense Council:

Sloviansk is under siege. Now an operation is going on to neutralize small groups hiding in buildings where peaceful citizens are living.
