DONETSK, July 06, 1:57 /ITAR-TASS/. Donetsk’s self-defense forces are strengthening the city’s defense, a spokesperson for the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“There have been no reports that the Ukrainian army has battled through into the city,” the spokesperson said. He also denied press reports about explosions in Donetsk’s center.
At the same time, the press service of the Donetsk People’s Republic confirmed the Ukrainian army had established control over Kramatorsk, Nikolayevka and Slavyansk.
