MOSCOW, January 25. /TASS/. Kiev troops opened fire on the territory of the Donetsk airport and the neighboring village of Spartak overnight, a source in law enforcement agencies of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said on Monday.
"The shelling of the airport’s territory from the Ukrainian forces’ positions began at around 10.30 p.m. (7.30 p.m. GMT). The Spartak village was under fire," the source told the Donetsk news agency.
The shelling was carried out from the Kiev forces’ positions in the Opytnoye village and the area of the Butovskaya coal mine, he added. The Kiev forces used mortars with the caliber of 82 mm, infantry fighting vehicles, grenade launchers and small arms.
At the meeting on January 13, the Contact Group on settling the crisis in Ukraine’s southeast backed the initiative of Russia’s envoy to the Minsk talks Boris Gryzlov on declaring ceasefire. This is the seventh attempt since autumn 2014 to fully observe the ceasefire in Donbas.
The "silence regime" was introduced from midnight on January 14. However, the Ukrainian forces and militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk republics continue accusing each other of violating the ceasefire.
