"More than 20 explosions were recorded, fire from air defense guns and small rifle weapons approximately from 8 in the morning to 16 on Tuesday’s hours, ”the report says.
“Due to security concerns (explosions and small-arms fire at Donetsk airport), the SMM could not get to the nearby Spartak settlement in 10 kilometers north-west of Donetsk to check the night shelling reports”, - observers reported.
At the same time, the report confirms “a relatively calm situation in the Lugansk region”.
