Militants shelled Dokuchaievsk town (Donetsk region) which is under their control from heavy weapons. This was reported by Ukraine’s Army HQ press center in Facebook.

"Today, Russian-occupation troops shelled Dokuchaievsk town which is not under Ukraine’s control from heavy weapons and presumably from 82-mm mortars. According to unconfirmed reports, there are casualties among local civilians due to the shelling. Our servicemen who perform tasks near the Novotroitske village noticed that during the attacks on Ukrainian positions from the 82mm mortars, the militants shelled both the strongholds of Ukraine’s Armed Forces near Novotroitske, and in the direction of Dokuchaievsk, seized by them, "the report said.

The headquarters state that this way, Russia-backed forces yet again create conditions for accusing the Ukrainian military of shelling peaceful frontline settlements.
