They also shelled the village of Spartak, in the north of Donetsk. “They are still shooting. They are deployed in the village of Opytnoye and near the Butovskaya mine and are using tanks, AA mounts and mortars,” says one of the villagers.

As a result of the shelling of the village of Sakhanka in the south of Donetsk, one self-defender was wounded. The Ukrainians used 82-mm mortars.
