The ATO press center reported that the Ukrainian army do not use such shells in the ATO area.
"It is a well-organized campaign by the Russian security services who are trying to intimidate the population. And, frankly, I do not understand the position of the Donetsk Regional State Administration, which demonstrates their intentions and attempts to start panic among the civilians," press officer Oleksii Dmytrashkivskyi said.

"Yesterday the Ukrainian army did not fire at Donetsk. What we fired at was an accumulation of the militants on the outskirts of the city of Donetsk. Shelling the city itself was not conducted. Regarding the allegations about incendiary bombs, we do not use this type of ammunition, there are such supplies in the area of the ATO," Dmytrashkivskyi said.
