“In areas controlled by the Russian-terrorist forces ("DPR"), panic is spreading among the population due to further deterioration of the situation at the demarcation line. Due to the damage, the western region territory of Donetsk are partially cut off heating, electricity and water. Militants carried out a partial evacuation of the Kyiv district of Donetsk (the northern outskirts of the city).

Earlier QHA reported that January 29 pro-Russian militants attempted to storm the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of Avdiivka Donetsk region. Ukrainian fighters repulsed the invaders, forcing them to retreat. After the collision, the terrorists have resumed mortar attacks on Avdiivka. The Prosecutor's office has qualified the shelling as a terrorist act as pro-Russian militants fired Avdiivka residential areas, being aware of the fact that civilian population was there.
