MOSCOW, April 15. /TASS/. Ukraine’s armed forces are shelling volunteer battalions not controlled by Kiev on the outskirts of the city of Dzerzhinsk, the Donetsk Region, the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Defense Ministry said Wednesday.
"Our intelligence determined that shellings on positions of Ukrainian volunteer units on the outskirts of Dzerzhinsk who refused to join the ranks of the armed forces of Ukraine continue from positions occupied by units of the Ukrainian armed forces’ 93rd separate mechanized brigade near Novgorodskoye," the ministry told the Donetsk News Agency.
It said the volunteer battalions, in response, without sorting out the situation, periodically open fire on the outskirts of the city of Gorlovka, which is near Dzerzhinsk.
Gorlovka mayor Andrey Darkovsky confirmed to the agency that "cannonade is heard in the city."
