MOSCOW, August 16. /TASS/. Ukrainian troops have started artillery shelling of living quarters in Donetsk, the Donetsk News Agency said late on Sunday.

"Several shells exploded in Dneprodzerzhinskaya Street. The city is being shelled from heavy artillery. Shock waves broke windows in a number of houses. People are hiding in bomb shelters," the agency said.

So far, there is no information about casualties.

The Minsk accords were signed on February 12, 2015 after 14-hour negotiations between the leaders of Normandy Four (Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko) in the Belarusian capital city of Minsk. Concurrently, Minsk hosted a meeting of the Contact Group on Ukrainian settlement.

A 13-point Package of Measures on implementation of the September 2014 Minsk agreements in particular included an agreement on cessation of fire from February 15, withdrawal of heavy armaments, as well as measures on long-term political settlement of the situation in Ukraine, including establishment of working subgroups as priority tasks.

The ceasefire however has been repeatedly violated.
