MOSCOW, November 4. /TASS/. Ukraine’s army has shelled the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) 26 times over the past day, DPR Defense Ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin said Wednesday.
"The Armed Forces of Ukraine shelled the villages of Spartak and Zhabichevo to the north of Donetsk, the area of the Volvo Center, the territory of the air terminal, the villages of Zaitsevo and Ozeryanovka near Gorovka," the Donetsk News Agency quoted Basurin as saying.
In line with an agreement reached in Minsk at a meeting of the Contact Group on settling the situation in east Ukraine, a complete ceasefire was established from September 1 at the disengagement line in Donbass. Still, separate instances of fire are registered from time to time.
Over the past two days, the DPR Defense Ministry has registered increased instances of shelling on the part of Ukraine’s military.
The ministry said that on November 2, a total of 16 violations of the truce in Donbass were registered.
Ukrainian troops have been engaged in fighting with local militias during Kiev’s punitive operation, underway since mid-April 2014, against the breakaway territories - the Donetsk and Lugansk people's republics constituting parts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine.
Massive shelling of residential neighborhoods, including with the use of aviation, has killed thousands and led to a humanitarian disaster in the area.
