As a result of either errors or negligence, a company of Ukrainian security services that launched an attack on the terminal of the Donetsk airport came under artillery shelling.
The Ukrainian troops launched a massive attack on the new airport terminal in Donetsk, said RIA Novosti. A column of military equipment and about a hundred people went to the runway of the airport from the direction of the village of Peski. The local militia forces tried to halt the offensive, but all of a sudden, the Ukrainian side opened fire on their own advancing column.
Thus, the Ukrainian troops destroyed a company of Ukrainian servicemen almost completely.
Donetsk militia leaders conduct OSCE-mediated talks to deliver the dead bodies to Kiev.
The fighting for the Donetsk Airport continues. Militias control several buildings of the airport. The Ukrainian troops are concentrated in the surrounding area - in the village of Peski and in the settlement of Avdeyevka.
