MOSCOW, January 29. /TASS/. The Ukrainian armed forces are shelling Naberezhnoye village in Ukraine’s Donetsk region where monitors of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC) have departed for an inspection visit, the Defense Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said on Friday.
"A delegation of the Joint Center for Control and Coordination, the OSCE and the DPR Defense Ministry has spent a few hours in Novoazovsky district trying to enter Naberezhnoye village that was shelled earlier. Now the Ukrainian side again opened fire on the village. It’s impossible to get there," Donetsk news agency quotes the Defense Ministry spokesman as saying.
DPR Defense Ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin and deputy Chief of Staff of the People’s Militia Corps Igor Yaschenko earlier said that the Ukrainian armed forces had begun to work out plans to carry out subversive activities and terrorist attacks against members of the OSCE mission "with a view to withdrawing the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) and deploy the NATO peacekeeping contingent to the area of the so-called anti-terrorist operation."
