MOSCOW, April 2. /TASS/. Kiev forces shelled a village near the embattled Donetsk airport in eastern Ukraine on Thursday during the visit of the monitors of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) there, the Donetsk People’s Republic’s Defense Ministry spokesman has said.
"Spartak [village] came under fire when the OSCE monitors were there. As a result of the shelling, one militia member was wounded," spokesman Eduard Basurin was quoted by the Donetsk news agency as saying.
Over the past 24 hours the shellings from the Ukrainian positions have been also registered in Gorlovka and the Veseloye village, he added.
The OSCE monitors visited Spartak and the Donetsk airport to control the observance of the ceasefire regime, Barusin said. No one of them was injured, he added.
The ceasefire regime in Donbas came into force starting from 01:00 Donetsk time on February 15.
The agreement on the ceasefire was reached during the Normandy Four summit in Minsk. The Contact Group participants on resolving the conflict in Ukraine signed the set of measures on implementing the Minsk agreements on February 12.
