MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. Kiev forces fired 64 shells at the northern and western areas of Donetsk, the suburbs of Yasinovataya and the Sakhanka village in the south of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) overnight, the Donetsk news agency reported on Monday.
"From 10.00 p.m. to 2.10 a.m. the Kiev forces shelled the villages of Mineralnoye, Spartak, Sakhanka and also the DPR positions near the airport and the Yasinovatsky roadblock. A total of 29 shells of 82-mm and 35 shells of 120-mm caliber were fired," the DPR law enforcers told the agency.
