BRUSSELS, October 2. /TASS/. The European Union is concerned about intensification of shelling and shooting in Ukraine’s east, the EU External Action Service said in a statement circulated in Brussels on Thursday.
"We are concerned about the intensification, in spite of the ceasefire in place, of shooting and shelling in eastern Ukraine, which led yesterday to the tragic death of several civilians near a school in Donetsk,” the statement says.
“We express our condolences to the families of the deceased, and recall the imperative of strict observation of the ceasefire protocol of 5 September and implementing memorandum of 19 September,” it said. “Observation of the ceasefire is a necessary step for the much needed restoration of law and order in the East of Ukraine, both in view of preventing human rights violations and for the investigation of those that have occurred so far.”
“Many Ukrainian servicemen have equally died in fighting over the past weeks, notably as a result of the continued shelling of the Donetsk airport,” it said.
The press service of the Donetsk state council said that on October 1 at least nine people were killed and another 30 wounded when the city was shelled from the area of the airport which the DNR militias are trying to recapture from encircled Ukrainian troops who continue shelling Donetsk’s residential districts.
