MOSCOW, August 12. /TASS/. Ukrainian forces shelled Donetsk’s Kuybyshevsky district on Tuesday evening, destroying a residential house, the mayor’s office reported on Wednesday.
"On August 11, around 9pm, Ukrainian Armed Forces shelled the Nuybyshevsky district. A residential house on Yershov Street was completely destroyed as a result of direct hit. According to available information, no one was injured," the mayor’s office added.
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.
