Ukrainian Armed Forces and Russian Federation Armed Forces officers at the JCCC told the SMM that this had been a heavy-machine-gun fire exchange between a military base in government-controlled Opytne (12km north-west of Donetsk) and “DPR”-controlled Donetsk airport (8km north-west of Donetsk)," according to the report od OSCE Special Monitoring Mission.
