DONETSK, July 06. /ITAR-TASS/. The past night in Donetsk was rather quiet, though witnesses say fighting continued near the local airport, press service of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said on Sunday.
“The military actions continue outside the city near the Peski and Karlovka settlements,” the press service said. “As of 09.00 local time (10:00 Moscow time), it is quiet in Donetsk.”
“At about 2 a.m. local time in Donetsk’s Voroshilov district people could hear a roaring - a convoy of heavy vehicles was moving there,” the press centre said, adding “tanks and IFVs could have been moving, as the city has been improving its defence.”
On Saturday, Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko ordered to “continue the operation to liberate the Donetsk and Lugansk regions,” tightening the circle around the people’s self-defence forces in the country’s eastern regions.
