MOSCOW, August 2. /TASS/. Two residents of east Ukraine’s Donetsk were wounded in Kiev forces’ shelling, the city administration told the Donetsk News Agency on Sunday.
"On the night of August 1-2, the Kuibyshevsky district was subjected to massive shelling by the Ukrainian army. According to available data, two persons were wounded," the city administration said.
The Kiev forces’ shelling damaged four residential buildings in Donetsk, the city administration said.
"A power cable was damaged, causing eight transformer substations to halt operation. The community of Zastantsionny was temporarily disconnected from power supply," the mayor’s office said.
Clashes between Ukrainian troops and local militias in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions during Kiev’s military operation conducted since mid-April 2014 to regain control over parts of the breakaway territories, which call themselves the Donetsk and Lugansk People's republics, have left thousands dead and forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee Ukraine’s embattled east.
