MOSCOW, August 19. /TASS/. The intelligence service of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has identified the location of the artillery of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, from where they shell Mariupol, spokesman for the DPR Defense Ministy Eduard Basurin told reporters on Wednesday.
"The intelligence service of the DPR militias has confirmed the location of the Ukrainian army’s artillery west of the populated locality of Primorskoye [20 kilometers northeast of Mariupol on the line of demarcation], at the road junction from where they shell the city of Mariupol," Donetsk News Agency quotes him as saying.
"To carry out its provocations, the regime of [Ukrainian President Petro] Poroshenko resorts to killing civilians, not only in Donbas but also in the territory controlled by it," Basurin said.
Earlier on Wednesday, DPR head Alexander Zakharchenko said that Mariupol was shelled from the Ukrainian positions near the frontline. He noted that the remaining military equipment of the Donetsk republic within the contact line in the south of the republic was not capable of reaching this area.
On Monday, the US State Department accused militiamen of making attacks in the north and east of Mariupol. The militia in turn blamed Kiev for the shellings.
