"A total of 126 mortar shells of 82-mm caliber and 104 mortar shells of 120-mm caliber were fired from the Ukrainian forces’ positions in the period from 18:30 to midnight. The shelling attack of the Ukrainian battalions was aimed at the Spartak, Veseloye, Kominternovo, Kulikovo, Oktyabr, Yasmoye, Zaitsevo, Sakhanka, Dokuchayevsk, Yasinovataya localities, as well as the environs of the airport and Gagarin mine outside Gorlovka", the source said.
