Russian rocket launchers seen moving through eastern city as Ukraine’s PM says his country is in ‘stage of war’ with Russia
Ukraine’s military says it has successfully defended the government-held airport in Donetsk from an attack by pro-Russia rebels.
A large plume of black smoke hung over the airport after it came under artillery fire late on Friday, in one of the biggest battles since a fragile ceasefire was declared.
Continuous rocketfire could be heard overnight in the city of Donetsk, controlled by pro-Russia forces. City officials said shells had hit residential buildings near the airport, although no casualties were reported.
A column of three Russian multiple rocket launchers was seen moving freely through Donetsk on Saturday morning.
