They also shelled the checkpoint in Yasinovataya (on the Donetsk-Gorlovka highway), Volvo Center and Donetsk airport. In total, Ukrainian Armed Forces fired 147 shells of 82mm calibers and 15 shells of 120mm caliber at these places," Donetsk News Agency quoted the source as saying.

The participants of the Contact Group on settling the situation in east Ukraine agreed on observing Easter ceasefire starting from April 30.
