Donetsk airport has come under heavy shelling, head of the administration of the city’s Kievsky and Kuibyshevsky districts said on Saturday.

"An area nearby the Donetsk airport has been bombarded for over two hours," Donetsk news agency quoted Ivan Prikhodko as saying. Also, Prikhodko has said that no detailed information is available yet while information about casualties and destruction has being verified.

At the beginning of this week, Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko claimed that Donetsk airport controlled by the militia of Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) would be re-taken. "I have no doubts that we will free the airport as it is our land and we will restore the airport," he said.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned Poroshenko against the attempts to regain control over the Donetsk airport.
