MOSCOW, May 25. /TASS/. The Defence Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said on Monday it has registered 43 ceasefire violations by Kiev’s military over the past 24 hours.
"Over the past 24 hours, the forces shelled 43 times the settlements of the Donetsk People’s Republic. The enemy has again used heavy weaponry," a ministry official told the Donetsk news agency.
The shelling targeted Donetsk and the embattled airport’s area, Gorlovka, Yasinovataya and Dokuchayevsk. The settlements of Spartak, Zhabichevo, Grigorovka and Zaitsevo also came under fire.
Information on the possible casualties among the civilians and militias is being verified.
Kiev’s military operation headquarters, in its turn, has also reported about the shellings carried out of the Donbas militias, also accusing them of using heavy weaponry.
The ceasefire regime in eastern Ukraine officially entered into force from February 15. The demand to stop hostilities was envisaged by the February 12 package of measures on implementing the Minsk agreements.
The Donetsk republic has repeatedly said that the compliance with the ceasefire deal mainly depends on the Ukrainian side.
