MOSCOW, 8 March. /TASS/. Kiev’s military 25 times opened fire at positions of militia of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), the self-proclaimed republic’s defence ministry reported on Sunday.
"Within last 24 hours, we registered about 25 times of opened fire, where nine were made at night," the Donetsk news agency quoted the ministry’s report.
The military say, the Ukrainian forces used tank artillery and 122mm mortars.
On Saturday, the republic’s head Alexander Zakharchenko said: "We have withdrawn fully our weapons from the line of engagement."
"Ukraine has not done its part," the Donetsk news agency quoted him. The republic’s head added if Kiev continued failing the Minsk agreements, he would make a special statement, and the DPR will return the weapons to their earlier locations.
