The Ukrainian Army affirmed today it has regained control of the strategic airport of Donetsk, in an operation in which 40 people died, mostly pro-Russian separatists.
“We retook full control of the airport. The adversary suffered casualties, but we did not,” assured in a statement the Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.
Kiev Army deployed helicopters, warplanes and paratroopers to regain control of strategic airport, which was taken withour violence by pro-Russian separatists last Sunday night.
However, Avakov claimed that the military would continue its operation at the airport, where journalists from AFP recorded explosions and gunfire.
