November 8 attacks on Novorossia cities by Ukrainian army intensified. Especially strongly Ukrainian artillery shelled Donetsk, Nikishino, Kirovsk, heavy artillery shelling of Lugansk also reported. Given the fact that most Ukrainian artillery strikes do not come to the positions of militia but to residential areas, it is likely to be the Ukrainian army tactics of gradual increase of the shelling intensity and destruction of infrastructure and strategically important Novorossia town facilities to win not in open battle but destroying Donbass to the ground.
