The Ukrainian army continues to intensify the shelling of the front-line territories of Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), a source in the Donetsk People’s Republic People’s Militia (DPR PM) informed a Rossa Primavera News Agency reporter on April 5th.
The situation is tense in the northern suburbs of Gorlovka. The Ukrainian army opened fire on the DPR PM positions near the villages of Golmovsky and Zaytsevo with small arms, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, infantry fighting vehicles, and mortars.
Throughout the day of April 5th, trench combat of variable intensity was underway in the areas of Avdeevka industrial zone, former Donetsk airport, and “Volvo-center”. The Ukrainian side utilized mortars and artillery guns. In the morning, the Ukrainian military attacked the representatives of the OSCE mission and of the Joint Centre for Ceasefire Control and Coordination, as well as maintenance crews in the area of the Donetsk water filtration plant.
In the south of DPR, near Novoazovsk, one woman was killed, and 7 civilians sustained various degrees of injuries as a result of the explosion of a mine laid by the Ukrainian military in a windbreak in 2014.
DPR intelligence reports that the Ukrainian nationalist units have become active along the whole front line and, especially, along the Mariupol direction, in the area of the village of Vodyanoye. This indicates that the Ukrainian side is preparing new sabotages and provocations.
According to recent information, on April 4th, the Ukrainian army violated ceasefire 55 times. 19 towns and villages of DPR were shelled. One house in Dokuchaevsk was damaged.
