From Saturday evening to the early hours of Sunday, "the Ukrainian side shelled the airport, the villages of Spartak, Zhabichevo and Vesyoloye, the Yasinovataya checkpoint and Dokuchayevsk. Overall, 140 mines of the 120 mm caliber and 64 mines of the 82 mm caliber were launched from the enemy positions," the Donetsk News Agency quoted the source as saying.
