DONETSK, January 19. /TASS/. Ukraine has withdrawn from the regime of ‘silence’ unilaterally, the head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Alexander Zakharchenko said on Monday.
“The latest heavy artillery shelling of Donetsk and adjacent areas and Gorlovka was unprecedented over the entire conflict,” the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.
“As a matter of fact, the Ukrainian side once again violated the truce regime and the Minsk agreements,” he said, adding that Kiev’s attacks were killing civilians and servicemen and destroying “our homes.”
“We will not be sitting back doing nothing, just waiting to be killed. We will take retaliatory actions. We have always observed agreements we signed. We want to secure our republic. And we will defend it,” he stressed.
Ukraine’s presidential adviser Yury Biryukov said on Sunday that the Ukrainian military had been ordered to open heavy fire at the positions of militias in the zone of the military operation in southeastern Ukraine.
Later, the DPR said that the city of Donetsk had been shelled by Ukrainian troops from all types of weapons.
