VIENNA, September 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Artillery shelling continues in cities north-east of Mariupol, the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) said in a report for September 28 published on the organisation’s website on Monday.
“Residents from nearby towns of Mirnoye, Andreevka and Granitnoye (all around 50 km north-east of Mariupol) reported to the SMM that those areas continue to be shelled, most recently at 10:00 hrs on 28 September,” the report said.
They reported that those “three towns had been without power for five days, which resulted in serious disruption to civilian life, including telecommunications and food preservation”.
OSCE monitors also visited several checkpoints manned by the Ukrainian army around Mariupol and was informed by the respective commanders that at 18:00 on 27 September they had received orders from their leadership to halt all use of weapons, including in response to shelling.
“In the city of Donetsk throughout 28 September the SMM heard sporadic shelling consistent with mortar and heavy artillery fire, which appeared to be concentrated in the districts situated close to Donetsk airport,” the report said.
