"Constant explosions... Church bells toll. The explosions are getting closer and closer to the city center," a local resident wrote on Twitter.
"The fact that separatist Grads are firing from the territory of Donetsk is confirmed by the short interval between the volley and the explosion, about 6-8 seconds, meaning they are 3 to 5 kilometres away," another Twitter user from Donetsk added.
