Mercenaries again launched an assault on Marinka village near Donetsk.

This is reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainska Pravda.

According to press officer of the Joint Center for Cease-Fire Coordination and Control Ruslan Semeniuk, illegal armed gangs started to shell Marinka at 6 a.m. After 10:30 a.m. the enemy added 122-mm missiles to the shelling. As of afternoon, Semeniuk said, there were no large-scale offensive and combat activities at the location.

As reported earlier, the terrorists launched an offensive against Marinka in the night of June 3. This happened after the Russian party nearly ruined negotiations in Minsk on Tuesday - their representative Azamat Kulmukhametov literally left the negotiations table.
