Eastern Ukraine: Ukrainian aviation strikes Donetsk

Ukrainian military aircraft shelled eastern Ukraine's Donetsk last night, the city's mayor's office said on Wednesday.

The strike created a 1.5 meter deep crater and damaged the pipeline and the road leading to the asphalt factory, the press office said.

Three shells set fire to a public utility. The fire spread over 1,000 square meters as firefighters had no access to the site amid the shelling.

It is noted that this is the first air attack against this regional capital that had 1,000,000 residents before the beginning of the fighting's in the mid of April.
