MOSCOW, November 30. /TASS/. The Ukrainian nationalistic military units at night on Monday shelled the Donetsk chemical plant, which is located not far from the Volvo-Centre in the Kyibyshev district, a source at the defense ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) told the Donetsk News Agency on Monday.
"At about midnight, the Ukrainian military opened fire from mortars on the chemical plant; the fire was over at 1 at night," the source said, adding the total of 20 mines of 82mm calibre had been laid on the territory of the plant.
The Donetsk chemical plant has been attacked several times by the Ukrainian military. The previous attack was in mid-July from Smerch MLRS. On February 8, the attack was made with use of the Tochka-U short-range ballistic missile system.
According to the agreement reached at peace talks in the Belarusian capital city Minsk, a complete ceasefire was declared on the contact line in Ukraine’s south-eastern Donbas region starting from September 1, however, the Ukrainian forces have systematically violated it. In particular, they regularly shell the outskirts of Donetsk and Gorlovka. The DPR Defense Ministry said previously that the situation in the republic has recently worsened. The number of shelling attacks on the northern and western outskirts of Donetsk and on the city suburbs has increased dramatically over the past month.
