In a statement published on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s website following Thursday’s session of the OSCE Permanent Council in Vienna, Kelin said shelling in eastern Ukraines continues despite the ceasefire deal reached at talks in Minsk in September.
“Ukraine’s security forces continue attacking residential areas,” Kelin said, adding that on November 25, a shell hit a minibus near Donetsk, killing two people and injuring eight others.The Russian diplomat praised the work of the OSCE mission in Ukraine, and said Russia also contributes to the fulfillment of the Minsk agreements.
“Our military specialists invited by the Ukrainian side are working to define the contact line. They perform an important task to assist the effort to define the demarcation line on the ground and the schedule for military hardware withdrawal,” he said.
“These are priority measures that are necessary to bring an end to the shelling of Donbass cities, the deaths of civilians and destruction of infrastructure,” Kelin said.
