Explosions in the occupied Donetsk

Donetsk was occupied by Russian invaders back in 2014. However, it's only recently that explosions have become more frequent in the temporarily occupied city. In particular, there have been reports of strikes targeting Russian troops or their ammunition and equipment depots.

Ukrainian officials and military operations are directed solely against the Russian occupiers and do not target civilians.

For instance, on August 23, there were reports of explosions in the center of occupied Donetsk.

Prior to this, on August 14, there were once again explosions reported in the temporarily occupied Donetsk. Online reports mentioned strikes against the occupiers near the "Topaz" factory.

Additionally, on July 13, local residents in Donetsk reported incoming projectiles in the area of the "Topaz" factory, which was involved in the development of long-range radio reconnaissance complexes and early warning systems for air defense in the city.
