Fierce battle at the Donetsk airport continues several hours already. Ukrinform journalist reports that the intensity of artillery shelling increased and now it may be considered one of the highest ever. The explosions could be heard in the center and northern part of the city, Censor.NET reports.
Heavy artillery equipment is used - tanks and self-propelled guns perhaps, the media says.
The situation in Donetsk remains tense. The energy supply to the districts, where the power was cut at night, is partially restored.
Earlier, the City Council reported that the shooting and explosions were heard this afternoon in Donetsk in almost all districts.
Recall, the Ukrainian soldiers protect strategically important airport in Donetsk for the fifth month. For their courage they have been called Cyborgs. There was a rotation at the airport last week - fresh forces have arrived. The storms of the Ukrainian stronghold continue.
