Donetsk, Apr 16 – DAN. Strikes at Dokuchayevsk over the past 24 hours were delivered by the Ukrainian army’s 35th Marines Brigade servicemen commanded by Nikolay Palas, spokesman for the Donetsk People’s Republic militia Daniil Bezsonov said on Tuesday.

“Yesterday, 35th Marines Brigade gunmen again targeted Dokuchayevsk residential areas and civil infrastructure,” Bezsonov said. “Fortunately, there were no civilian casualties.”

Two houses, a car and widows of a sewage pumping station were damaged in the shelling, he added.

Earlier reports on Tuesday said that Ukrainian forces violated the “spring ceasefire” 15 times over the past 24 hours firing 172 rounds of ammunition at DPR areas.*jk
