DONETSK, October 17. /TASS/. Ukraine’s forces are shelling the Novoazovsky district in the south of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, the DPR operative command told the Donetsk News Agency on Monday.
Earlier in the day, the Kiev forces carried out another attempt to attack the Donetsk militia positions. "The fighting is underway, the security forces sustain losses, five Ukrainian troops were killed and ten others were wounded," a representative of the command said.
The Novoazovsky district administration said the mortar shelling has also started in the Sakhanka village. "The shelling of Sakhanka began at 8 a.m., mortars and small arms are used," acting head of the administration Anatoly Yanovsky said.
The DPR authorities earlier said that Ukraine’s forces shelled the Staromikhailovka village of Donetsk’s Kirovsky district at night.
