Representatives of the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Donetsk said that  dozens of people had been killed since the beginning of the military operation in Donetsk. The figures vary from 40 to 200 people. The Ukrainian authorities are not going to withdraw their troops. Moreover, Kiev delivered an ultimatum to the militia: either they surrender or be destroyed from high-precision weapons. This was stated by spokesman of so-called anti-terrorist special operation, Vladislav Seleznev.

Combat aircraft of the Ukrainian army appeared this afternoon in the sky over Donetsk again. It was said that local residents were given three hours to leave. Meanwhile, representatives of the OSCE stated that they lost contact with their observers in Donetsk.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov urged the Kiev authorities to immediately stop the punitive operation in the south-east of Ukraine and establish a dialogue with representatives of the regions.
