DONETSK, August 17 /ITAR-TASS/. At least ten civilians have been killed and another eight wounded in the Ukrainian army’s shelling of Donetsk in east Ukraine in the past twenty-four hours, the city council said on Sunday.

“The night was tense and the sounds of salvoes and explosions were heard all across the city,” the city council said.

Artillery fire has cut off electricity supply at 50 transformer substations in the city. Repair works are under way, the city council said.

Pro-Kiev troops and local militias in the eastern Ukrainian Donetsk and Luhansk regions are involved in fierce clashes as the Ukrainian armed forces are conducting a military operation to regain control over the breakaway regions, which on May 11 proclaimed their independence at local referendums.

During the military operation, Kiev has used armored vehicles, heavy artillery and attack aviation. Many buildings have been destroyed and tens of thousands of people have had to flee Ukraine’s embattled east.
