2:10 A resident of Donetsk:

"We are starving and surviving through humanitarian aid, which the Russian Federation gives to us. This beast Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk, the divinely bald - Turchinov, you should hang them, bastards, and not by the neck but by the balls! It’s bitter for me to live such a life - in poverty. "

1:42 Message from military correspondent with the call sign "Samur".

"Ukrainian artillery resumed regular shelling of residential areas of Donetsk. Ukrainian military have exotic understanding of "ceasefire": AFU artillery resumed firing at residential areas of Donetsk and other cities. In the evening of March 16 residents of Krasnogvardeysk district of Makeyevka heard sounds of explosions of two artillery shells. In the night of March 16 to 17 Ukrainian batteries opened fire at the Kievsky district of Donetsk repeatedly from the village of Peski. The fire was conducted with 122 mm and 152 mm howitzers. However, since the shells lay mainly in the neighborhoods already bombed-out, which were left by most residents, there were no casualties . "

00:35 Message from locals:

"In the evening of March 17 the explosion was heard at about ​​7-8 pm of (also in Severodonetsk and Rubezhnoye), there was something heavy.
Then, later, I turned my attention to the lights in the sky over the forest. At first I thought there were flare lights. But, since these lights were flashing at one point rather than flying by a trajectory, I realized that it was a volley of MLRS. Then there were some more such lights, I realized that they were just striking from several points. Volleys, I think, were conducted from the point between the villages Kapitanovo and Muratovo. Perhaps they shelled somewhere toward Tryokhizbyonka or Slavyanoserbsk.
Volleys themselves were not heard in Severodonetsk, it means they were far away. There were about 10 bursts, at least, not less. "

00:16 AFU opened fire on the territory of the Republic of Donetsk five times on Tuesday, March 17. According to the press service of the DPR Ministry of Defense.

"There were five violations for today. In particular, the Donetsk airport was twice shelled, and the village Spartak - three times "
- the press service is quoted by the Donetsk news agency.
It is noted that the security forces opened fire with rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and anti-aircraft systems.


The new law on special order of self-government in some areas of Donbass adopted by the Verkhovna Rada does not involve the creation of unconstitutional government. The Ukrainian Parliament Speaker Vladimir Groisman wrote about this:

"The decision that we adopted means that the condition for the entry into force of the law about the peculiarities of local government will be holding of free democratic local elections in in these areas full accordance with the Constitution and international standards. The law allows neither special status, nor bodies, which are not provided by the Constitution of Ukraine, "
- Groisman said.

Head of the Ukrainian Parliament stated that these territories are not defined to create a new state border.

22:04 Village Trudovskaya (Petrovsky district) was completely destroyed by the security forces. The AFU have destroyed almost all the houses in the village, there is not a living soul. Many have left.

21:18 Report from Khryaschevatoye. Little Pripyat.

"Look at these eyes. Look at these houses. Look at the pain. Five trips to Donbass.
Tons of pain and tears. The elderly, children, basements, bomb shelters ... Children’s poems about the war. - Dunya, it is unbearable to read. I’m crying. I do not want. This is Khryaschevatoye.
Pictures cannot convey what the village became.
Burned, destroyed almost to the ground, wild and empty.
It seems you get into some fantastic post-apocalyptic future.
It is impossible to believe. This is the 21st century. Not Africa or the Middle East. Watch my video. Scan it carefully. Almost all the streets are the same. It has been no longer shelled since summer.
But people live in it. The elderly and the washy among them.
Who have nowhere to go. Nowhere to be helped from.
Some need diapers for care, someone - medicines.
There is no electricity in half of the village since summer. Many burn wood. Families are sitting in the same room – saving candles. "
