In total, over the past day, to 02.00 of 10/06/2014, gunmen realized more than 50 attacks on the forces of the ATO [anti-terrorism operation]. Twice, militants tried to storm the Donetsk airport, and assault actions and clashes were reported in the districts near Nykyshyn and Popasna. All terrorist attacks were successfully repulsed.

There is a concentration of units of the regular army of the Russian Federation in the area of ​​Dokuchaievsk–Novotroitsk–Olhinka and Novoazovsk–Kominternovo.
