MOSCOW, August 20. /TASS/. Ukrainian forces have violated ceasefire regime 17 times over last 24 hours, firing 75 shells at the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), DPR defense ministry said on Thursday.

"Ukrainian Armed Forces violated ceasefire regime 17 times over last 24 hours," Donetsk News Agency quoted DPR defense ministry as saying.

Ukrainian forces shelled from artillery the settlements of Staromikhaylovka, Oktyabr, Zhabichevo, Belaya Kamenka and Spartak, as well as Donetsk’s Petrovsky district and airport.

"Twenty-five artillery shells were fired on the territory of the republic [by Ukrainian forces], as well as 50 mines of 82mm and 120mm caliber," the defense ministry said.

The Petrovsky district’s administration said earlier that one civilian was injured in the nightly shellings.

"One person was injured," Donetsk News Agency quoted Petrovsky district administration head Maxim Zhukovsky as saying.

Three residential houses were damaged in the settlement of Alexandrovka, part of Donetsk’s Petrovsky district, the settlement’s head Vladimir Cherkas said.
