"At 23.00 hours the Ukrainian side opened fire with 122mm guns on Trudovskiye and at about 00.30 hours on Elenovka firing a total of 22 artillery shells on these populated localities," the source told Donetsk News Agency.
He noted that the Ukrainian troops used mortars firing a total of 44 120mm and 85 82mm mortar bombs. They also shelled the Yasinovataya area, Staromikhailovka village in western Donetsk, the city of Dokuchaevsk and the northern suburbs of Donetsk.
