MOSCOW, August 7. /TASS/. Ukrainian military over the past 24 hours bombarded the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk Republic 30 times to have fired more than 170 shells, the Donetsk Republic’s Defense Ministry said.
"Ceasefire was violated 32 times over the past 32 hours," the Donetsk news agency quotes the Defense Ministry’s spokesman as saying.
In particular, the Defense Ministry pointed out that large caliber artillery was used: 38 152 mm and 122 mm artillery shells, 30 tank shells and 103 82 mm and 120 mm caliber mines crashed on the Donetsk republic’s territory.
"Artillery and mortar attacks were mounted against the village of Spartak and the area of the Donetsk airport from the villages of Opytnoye and Avdeyevka," the Defense Ministry said.
