At least 11 have been killed in shelling of the Donetsk city by Ukrainian troops blocked in the airport area. Ten people were killed in a culture centre fire as a result of shell explosion. A repair worker of Ukraine’s DTEK energy holding was also killed in the shelling.
The city’s regional clinical hospital was grossly damaged by fire from the Grad multiple rocket launch system. The local residents fear that artillery fire from the airport area will again be aimed at a hospital.
