Two civilians have been injured as the Ukrainian government forces launched an artillery shelling attack on the Kuibyshev district of the city of Donetsk late on Monday evening, a source in security agencies of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) told the Donetsk News Agency on Tuesday.
