MOSCOW, November 2. /TASS/. Ukrainian forces have shelled the Veseloye settlement in the Yasinovatsky district of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), local administration head Yury Yanenko told Donetsk News Agency on Monday.
"On Sunday, November 1, Ukrainian forces shelled the Veseloye settlement from mortars. As a result, an outbuilding was destroyed in fire in one of residential houses on Kolkhoznaya Street," Yanenko said adding that the fire was extinguished by emergencies ministry’s workers.
It was earlier reported that a resident of Oktyabrsky settlement in Donetsk’s Kuybyshevsky district was injured in the shelling by Ukrainian forces. On October 30 another resident was injured in the shelling by Kiev forces in Donetsk.
DPR authorities addressed the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) with a request to hold emergency Contact Group talks in connection with repeated violations of ceasefire regime in Donbass.
At the meeting of the Contact Group in Minsk on August 26, the participants confirmed their plans to ensure ceasefire in Donbass from September 1. Over the last weeks, only few violations of ceasefire regime were registered in Donbass.
The Minsk accords were signed on February 12, after negotiations in the so-called "Normandy format" in the Belarusian capital Minsk, bringing together Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
The Minsk accords envisage ceasefire, weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local election in Donbas, constitutional reform in Ukraine and establishing working sub-groups on security, political, economy and humanitarian components of the Minsk accords.
The Ukrainian forces and the self-defense forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics have repeatedly accused each other of violating ceasefire and other points of the Minsk agreements.
