10:20 Message from military correspondent with the call sign "Steppe":

Ukrainian forces attacked militia near Donetsk. AFU move up reserves and prepare for a new assault. Fighting broke out in the area of Donetsk airport with the use of mortars and grenade launchers in the afternoon (March 12). The high intensity of the fire was due to the fact that the AFU decided to recapture their lost positions and went on the offensive, trying to break through the militia defense. To avoid encirclement, the militia opened fire in response. Near Ozeryanovka, Gorlovka direction, punishers began an armed provocation, which resulted in a gunfight. Suburb of Gorlovka came under fire of enemy mortars. In the last few days Ukrainian army continues to move up forces to Avdeyevka and Karlovka, north-western outskirts of Donetsk. Armored vehicles, trucks with ammunition and provisions were driven there. Convoys of tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, and trucks with staff move towards Donetsk from Krasnoarmeysk in the night. The occupation authorities hastily evacuate from Dzerzhinsk, and AFU are entrenching around Artyomovsk at Soledar and Chasov Yar. All this does not correspond to peaceful intentions and does not seem like rotation.
