As stated by the department, the shelling was carried out in the south of the republic.

“The fire was fired purposefully in the settlements,” Daniil Bezsonov, head of the DPR People’s Police press service, quotes RIA Novosti.

According to him, the proof of this is the downed unmanned aerial vehicle of the DPR, with which the shooting was adjusted.

He also added that the second downed drone was a strike and was destroyed in an attempt to attack Kominternovo.

On August 11, the DPR announced the destruction of an attack UAV drone.
