"Lomakin's detachment stopped at the Bazovaya girder near Kiselevka, where a summer livestock farm was located, which was considered deaf, which is why the partisans chose it.
Not far away there were a few skeins of straw. At the top of the largest pile of guards, the guerrillas staged an observation post. Once, four carts drove up to the stacks. Four Romanian soldiers began to impose straw. So they discovered the guerrilla post. Two partisans opened fire. They killed three, and the fourth, wounded, managed to jump on his horse and gallop off. He raised the alarm.
The invaders surrounded the gully, in which the detachment of Lomakin was hiding. Several times the Germans suggested that the partisans surrender. But the detachment fought to the last. No one gave up alive.
The battle ended in the evening of the second day. The Germans brought to Kiselevka seventy corpses of their soldiers and officers. And the next morning they ordered to bury the dead partisans.
They did not allow digging a mass grave, but ordered the bodies of the fallen heroes to be thrown into the well and cellar. The rest were simply sprinkled with earth.
