The first images have been released from the Yasynuvata post, where clashes started between the Ukrainian Armed Forces and fighters of the Army of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
As was earlier reported by “Rusvesna”, on 8th March, the Ukrainian occupation forces tried to break through the line of defence of the DPR in the area of the checkpoint on the Yasynuvata— Gorlovka road.
Fighters of the Internal troops and the Defense Ministry of the Republic spoke about the events, and also about the weapons that the Ukrainian troops are using against them.
You can also see the shelled Russian journalists in the footage, which was reported previously.
Recall that the section of the Yasynuvata — Gorlovka road at the Yasynuvata post has become one of the hotspots on the front line in Donbass in the last few days.
On March 7th, the power structures of the DPR reported the Kiev military had captured territory in the neutral zone near the road.
From the captured positions the APU began shelling civilian vehicles. Later, the Ministry of Defence of the DPR announced the closure of movement in the Republic by the police in connection with the danger to the life and health of the citizens.
