"Another aggravation of the situation in the Donetsk airport took place today. The airport was under shelling from Grad multiple rocket launchers at night. The enemy began shelling of the control tower and the new terminal in the morning, which is under the Ukrainian troops' control. The tower was partially destroyed due to the shelling. The attack was conducted by two tanks and artillery. The enemy firing points were suppressed by the artillery support provided to the defenders of the airport - the situation was settled down," the statement reads.
