Ukraine crisis.. 6 explosions heard in Donetsk

Reuters reported that six explosions could be heard in the center of the separatist-controlled city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine.

The source of the explosions was not yet clear, but a diplomatic source said earlier that shelling had resumed on the line of contact between government forces and separatists in eastern Ukraine.

This region was the scene of the entry of a large number of Russian military vehicles, after Moscow announced that it recognized the separatist Donetsk and Lugansk regions in eastern Ukraine as independent states.

This came after Russian President Vladimir Putin asked his forces to “keep peace” in the two regions, prompting protests from Ukraine and the West.

For its part, the Ukrainian army recorded, in the past 24 hours, 84 violations of the ceasefire by separatists in eastern Ukraine, including weapons prohibited from being used in accordance with the Minsk agreements.

He said that two soldiers were killed and 12 others wounded as a result of intermittent clashes with separatists.
