Translated by Ollie Richardson


War correspondents of the DPR Army press service Mikhail Andronik and Dan Levi in the evening on June 5th twice came under UAF fire.

At about 20:00 the journalists visited the settlement Krutaya Balka, where positions of the Armed Forces of the Republic were under dense fire from automatic grenade launchers.

And less than an hour and a half later they visited the settlement of Donetsk-Severny, where the UAF shelled using 120-mm mortars, including with the use of incendiary ammunition.
