MOSCOW, June 6 /TASS/. One civilian died and another one was injured when the Ukrainian army shelled Trudovskiye settlement near Donetsk on Monday, Eduard Basurin, a representative of operational command of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), told the Donetsk News Agency.
"A civilian died and another one was injured in the Trudovskiye settlement [Ulitsa Lyotchikov] which came under mortar shelling tonight," Basurin said.
Earlier, the DPR forces reported that the Ukrainian army had launched almost 50 mines at the outskirts of Donetsk, Yasinovataya and Dokuchayevsk.
Ukrainian troops have fired 230 mortar shells on northern and western outskirts of Donetsk, on a check point in Yasinovataya settlement and the settlement of Sakhanka in the south of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic on Monday evening, a law enforcement source has told the Donetsk News Agency.
