Representative of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Aleksei Dmitrashkovsky, said that the military operation in Donetsk would continue until all military units of the self- proclaimed People's Republic of Donetsk are destroyed.

According to him, "the military operation in Donetsk will continue until the forces of the People's Republic of Donetsk are destroyed, or until they surrender."

Shortly before this, the official said that the Ukrainian troops had killed as many as 200 militiamen. According to Dmitrashkovsky, the total number of losses would be exposed later during the day.

The Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, who was appointed for the position by the Verkhovna Rada, stated that the international airport of Donetsk was fully controlled by the Ukrainian security forces.

The Prime Minister of the People's Republic of Donetsk, in turn, stated that  as many as one hundred militiamen and civilians were killed as a result of the fighting for Donetsk. The mayor of Donetsk confirmed the death of at least 40 people as a result of the military operation conducted by the Ukrainian troops.
