Local residents said “fighting is going on in Maryinka (suburb of Donetsk) and smoke from a fire can be seen there,” the city council said.
Maryinka stands along the humanitarian corridor opened for the residents of Donetsk to leave the city.
Earlier, a similar corridor was opened in Luhansk. It is marked by pieces of white fabric. Besides, each person using the corridor has to wear a wide white band on the sleeve.
The DNR press service also denied reports that the Ukrainian army had taken the town of Yasinovataya, a major railroad hub, in the Donetsk region.
“In the morning the Ukrainian troops made a new attempt to enter Yasinovataya. The militias fought off all attacks, and the fighting is still going on,” the press service said.
In Dokuchayevsk, a town near Donetsk, Ukrainian troops killed 18 civilians, militiamen said, adding that it was an act of revenge of the death of their two fellow soldiers.
