STEPANENKO: Natash, she called us.

ANDRIANOVA: This is Anya. Ive got the impression that the soldiers have started things. Guys, dont leave us, if theres a chance, if you can do it, were asking you

STEPANENKO: Ann, were trying, can you explain what youre feeling? Isit tear gas? Whatkind of gas is it?

ANDRIANOVA: Idont know what kind of gas, but Isee a reaction, that these people dont want to kill the good guys and bad guys, but, Ithink, our soldiers have started to do something, Idont think were going to get out of here alive, Ithink this is going to end badly

STEPANENKO: Anya, can you tell us what kind of gas it is? Isit tear gas? Whats happening to the people? Canyou see it? Areyou feeling it?

ANDRIANOVA: Guys, Im begging Idont know, we see, we feel, were breathing through hankies, our boys are doing something. (Shooting is audible for 23 seconds.) Oh, Lord!!! (Pause) Can you hear us?

STEPANENKO: Yes. ANDRIANOVA: Now were all going to get blown to Hell. Well, our boys started it

STEPANENKO: What was all the shooting just now?

ANDRIANOVA: Idont know, Im sitting with my face on someones back and Ijust dont know Lord! Alittle while ago we were sitting and watching NTV and rejoicing Itstarted from outside. Apparently our government made this decision, that no one makes it out of here alive

(Only the sound of gunshots audible for the next 23 minutes)
