MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. Kiev forces shelled the northern suburb of Donetsk, including the embattled airport area, overnight to Friday, the defense ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic has said.
"At around 1:00 a.m. the Ukrainian forces again opened fire on the territories to the north of Donetsk. The village of Zhabichevo, Spartak and the airport’s territory came under fire," the ministry told the Donetsk news agency.
The shelling was carried out from the Kiev forces’ positions in Pesky with the use of mortars with the caliber of 82 and 120 mm, grenade launchers and small arms, the ministry said.
No casualties or damage have been reported so far.
The deputy chief monitor of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine, Alexander Hug, said Thursday that Shirokino, Gorlovka and the Donetsk airport’s territory should be again considered as "hot spots."
