VIENNA, April 27. /TASS/. Monitors of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) report the most intense shelling of the village of Shirokino in eastern Ukraine since mid-February, according to a traditional daily update of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine published on its website on Monday.
"The situation remained volatile in Shirokino, where numerous ceasefire violations were registered by the SMM as the situation deteriorated further on 26 April," the document says. "While in the village, the SMM heard outgoing and incoming fire for an extended period, most of which was outgoing small arms and 82mm mortar fire and saw smoke rising above the southern part of the village. On 26 April the SMM observed what it assessed to be the most intense shelling in Shirokino since fighting began in the area in mid-February 2015.".
