As of Friday morning, October 3, 2014, the airport of Donetsk still remains partly under the control of security forces, and partly under the control of militia, spokesman of the Defense Ministry of the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Donetsk, Georgy Morozov said.
Last night, news agencies reported that the militia forces took complete control of the airport. "This is not true that we all took the airport - this is someone's wishful thinking," said Morozov.
According to RIA Novosti, the night in Donetsk was relatively calm; solitary sounds of explosions were heard on the outskirts of the city. By morning, all was quiet.
