MOSCOW, August 10. /TASS/. Residential houses in the Kuybyshevsky district in Donetsk have been damaged in shelling by Ukrainian forces, district administration head Ivan Prikhodko told Donetsk News Agency on Monday.
"A house on Udarnaya Street and garages near houses on Pravovaya Streer were hit directly. Residential houses on Kurchatov Street were also damaged," he said.
According to Prikhodko, Ukrainian forces shelled the district from 7pm on August 9 until 7am on August 10.
It was earlier reported that a civilian has been killed in a shelling by Ukrainian forces overnight to August 10 in Gorlovka. Ukrainian forces shelled the town all night, the town’s administration head Roman Khramenkov informed adding that "everything is calm now, there are not shellings at the moment."
The town of Gorlovka has become one of the "hot spots" on the contact line in Donbas. According to mayor’s office, 164 civilians were killed and more than 500 injured in shellings since January 2015. Shellings are registered daily, mostly in nighttime.
On July 18, the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics (DPR and LPR) announced their plans to unilaterally withdraw heavy weaponry from the contact line. Weaponry withdrawal is envisaged by the Minsk agreements on the settlement in Ukraine signed on February 12 by Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine in the Belarusian capital.
DPR announced at the end of July that it completed the withdrawal of weaponry of less than 100mm caliber from the contact line, leaving tanks only in "hot spots" to the north of Donetsk and in Debaltsevo. LPR also completed the withdrawal of weaponry from the contact line, leaving tanks and armored vehicles only on positions near the Schastye settlement.
On July 21, the Contact Group on Ukrainian settlement reached an agreement on gradual withdrawal of weaponry of less than 100mm caliber by both sides. However, the final document has not been signed yet.
