MOSCOW, January 20. /TASS/. Ukrainian forces have shelled three settlements in the south of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) at night - Sakhanka, Shirokino and Kominternovo, head of the Novoazovsky district Oleg Morgun said on Wednesday.
"The Ukrainian army shelled Shirokino, Sakhanka and Kominternovo. They hit the outskirts, nothing serious. Nothing was damaged, and no one was injured," Morgun told Donetsk News Agency.
In the evening of January 19 Ukrainian Armed Forces shelled the settlement of Spartak near the Donetsk airport from infantry fighting vehicles and small arms.
Last week the Contact Group on settling the situation in south-east Ukraine agreed that it is necessary to observe the ceasefire regime in Donbas. This is the seventh attempt since autumn 2014 to fully observe the ceasefire in Donbas.
