The source noted that Ukraine’s Armed Forces had been shelling the north-western part of the city from heavy weapons. "Powerful explosions are heard from the area of Nikitovsky district and Ozeryanovka," he said.
The Defense Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has noted that Gorlovka often comes under fire from the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
