KIEV, February 5. /TASS/. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) in Ukraine notes that the situation in eastern Ukraine has been deteriorating, the deputy chief of the mission, Alexander Hug, said on Thursday.
The "indiscriminate" shelling of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions has been on the rise and most incidents have been reported in residential areas, Hug said, also mentioning the use of cluster weapons.
The mission hopes that a temporary ceasefire will be established to allow the civilians to leave the zones of armed actions. This ceasefire regime could last for at least three days, he said.
A monitor of the OSCE mission has confirmed the shelling of a hospital in Donetsk on Wednesday, Hug said. Five people were killed, including one at the hospital and four others in the street, according to the DPR's Interior Ministry.
