"The Donetsk airport remains a priority goal for the terrorists. Militants made several unsuccessful attempts to assault the airport. Afterward, they continued to shell it. Our troops repulsed all attacks and killed 12 terrorists", Lysenko said.
According to Lysenko, during the assault terrorists have used smoke bombs. Because of that, information that gas was used started spreading in the social networks. "We once again urge people not to spread unverified information, which harm the military, including those who heroically defend the airport", he stressed.
