It is apparently extremely intense fighting. Many, MANY reports of shelling and battles. English Lugansk isn't translating due to a cold but from Mikhail D.'s account I can see that things are getting hairy over there.

It seems that Ukraine is returning fire tonight, which is something it doesn't happen everyday.

... and it's concerning in the context of the current geopolitical situation involving Ukraine and Russia.

And exercises can shift to a real, full blown offensive with a single order. There's no difference in appearance between an excercise and an imminent invasion

I'm still one to believe nothing will happen. Russia threw out element of suprise...Ukraine is dug in. May see rebel action but not official invasion.
