 Terrorists shell Donetsk airport from residential neighborhoods - OSCE

The pro-Russian terrorists commit attacks on the Donetsk airport from residential neighborhoods or outskirts of the city.

OSCE Special Monitoring Mission deputy head Alexander Hug said at a press briefing in Donetsk, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

"The attacks on the Donetsk airport are committed from the territory of residential neighborhoods or outskirts of the city. The local population and infrastructure suffer as a result," he said.

According to Hug, he together with the observers attempted to get to the airport twice on Thursday to assess at scene whether the situation provides safety of civilians and military personnel, but there was fighting in progress, and the mission had to return to the city.

"The risk was too high, and it was decided to return to the base," Hug said.
