Donetsk Pro-Russian forces fire artillery on Ukrainian positions.

This footage reportedly shows artillery gunners from the People's Militia of pro-Russian, so-called Donetsk People's Republic targeting Ukrainian positions in the Avdiivka area of eastern Ukraine.

The images were obtained from the People's Militia of the DPR (DPR) on Sunday, 28th August, along with a statement claiming that the footage shows "the work of 152-mm guns of the 9th regiment in the Avdiivka area."

They also claimed: "They are counter-batterying, supporting the advancing infantry, and destroying enemy fortified areas."

We have not been able to independently verify the claims or the footage.
