The number of victims is still to be confirmed, “ambulances” carry the wounded to city hospitals, Emergency Services are busy fire-fighting and clearance of munitions in houses of neighborhoods Oktyabrsky and Azotny which underwent artillery attack from the standpoint of Ukrainian fighters in Peski – Tonenkoye.

In the village Gornyak of Kuibyshevsky district of Donetsk houses tremble because of close breaks and howitzers’ sounds, people go down into shelters because of the fierce cannonade and the threat of unexpected hits of enemy artillery.

We spent the New Year under the bombings – an ICV, several machine-gun detachments were destroyed, and shooting from the other side does not always mean clashes between fighters.
