“Cluster ammunition is possibly used, one can hear powerful explosions followed by dozens of weaker booms,” he said, adding that the Stankostroy neighborhood was being targeted.
Besides, the settlement of Yasnogorka near Kramatorsk was left without gas supply after a high-pressure pipe had been damaged by a shell, he said.
According to early reports, Grad multiple rocket launcher systems were used in the shelling of Kramatorsk that continued throughout last night. “Shells were literally ‘poured’ on the city. Powerful explosions were as frequent as when submachine guns are used,” the source said. After a lull, an active shelling of Kramatorsk resumed on June 30, at 22:30 local time exactly half an hour after the ceasefire between the Kiev regime and the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics ended.
The centre of the city and a living quarter were pounded all night long overnight to Wednesday.
