4 years
Ukraine Reports 56 Attacks Over 24 Hours; Zaytsevo Checkpoint To Be Closed

There have been reports this morning of intense fighting heard to the north and west of the separatist-held city of Donetsk.

These come not only from residents on social media, but also the separatist-backed head of the Kuybyshevsky district administration, Ivan Prikhodko.

Novosti Donbassa reports that Prikhodko wrote on his Facebook page this morning that fighting, with mortars and small arms, was under way at the Volvo Centre, a separatist-held position southeast of Ukrainian-held Peski.

It is in this area that Information Resistance claims that reinforcements of four BMP infantry fighting vehicles and 50-60 troops were deployed yesterday, with another 82 mm mortar battery nearer to Donetsk Airport.

Translation: From the direction of Peski you can hear fighting. Automatic weapons being used, as well as something heavy.

Translation: Avdeyevka Fighting under way towards Opytnoye, with the use of grenade launchers and small arms. Very intense.

Translation: Some sort of trash has started up. Non-stop gunfire. Artillery mixed up with small arms.

Translation: #Donetsk Railway market can hear heavy fighting somewhere nearby. Hitting with all kinds of weaponry.

Translation: #Donetsk haven't been such bangs for a long time. The orcs have gone on a rampage, usually they sit in their holes during the day, small arms and explosions at Donetsk Airport since 7 in the morning.

Reports of fighting to the west and southwest of the city: 

Translation: From the direction of Durnaya Balka - f***ing powerful salvoes. #Donetsk

Translation: #Donetsk Topaz 11:23 (local): it's started again, distinct bangs from the southwest...

Translation: The separatists have opened their closet. Tanks have gone towards Marinka. Ranging fire in every sector. Such phenomena don't happen without orders from the very top.
