MOSCOW, August 19. /TASS/. OSCE monitors have registered a sharp increase in the shelling of the township of Telmanovo located on the territory of the self-proclaimed unrecognized Donetsk People’s Republic, the deputy chief of the OSCE special monitoring mission Alexander Hug said on Wednesday.
As many as 180 encroachments on the ceasefire were registered last week and the mission’s observation point in the city of Donetsk pointed out Telmanovo as the main hot spot of shelling in the territory of the DPR, the Donetsk News Agency quoted him.
On Monday, the Defense Ministry of the DPR said the situation in Donbas had degenerated into a full-blown crisis.
The past few weeks however have seen a new sharp aggravation of tensions in Donbas and reports on victims among civilians have appeared again.
Officials of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics have said many a time observance of ceasefire is contingent entirely on the actions of the pro-Kiev forces.
