Russian attacks on Donetsk airport despite ceasefire

Several videos showing the battle for Donetsk airport. Terrorussians ignoring the ceasefire because they want to take the strategic location of Donetsk airport. Once taken this will be a big moral victory for them even though it is completely destroyed.
For the Russians it goes like this: if they can take it easy without much costs, they will take it easy (like Crimea); if they can't take it easy, they will destroy it and THEN take it (like the border crossings); but they will take it anyway.

Two longer videos showing the position of a gun and attack on a building at Donetsk airport.
The video starts with smoke/fire and some Russian using the word 'provocation'. So obviously they want to justify with this video that they 'counterattack'. The truth of course is that the Terrorussians want Donetsk airport at all costs and never stopped attacking it.

This Google Earth screenshot shows the route the cameraman is walking, the original location of the black smoke (right) and the building they are firing upon (up):
