Meanwhile, units of the Donetsk People’s Republics supported by the Russian military have been finalizing preparations for the offensive to take control of Mariupol city.
DPR sources also reported a fierce attack of the Ukrainian military on the city of Gorlovka. Four Kiev soldiers were killed and three others were injured, according to DPR. DPR forces also suffered casualties. The city remains in the hands of DPR. The attack on Gorlovka was likely an attempt to draw attention of the advancing DPR troops from Mariupol. In the previous days, the Ukrainian Army was actively shelling Gorlovka residential areas. Most likely, Kiev units wanted to spend their munitions before the withdrawal from the nearby positions.
