MOSCOW, February 1. /TASS/. Kiev forces shelled overnight two villages and the Volvo Center area in the western and northern outskirts of Donetsk, in eastern Ukraine, a source in the law enforcement agencies of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said on Monday.
"The Ukrainian forces began shelling the Zhabichevo village at around 11.30 p.m. The fire later targeted the outskirts of the neighboring Volvo Center. At around the same time the Trudovskiye village was shelled," the source told the Donetsk news agency.
The Ukrainian forces carried out the shelling from the positions in the Pesky and Maryinka villages using the mortars with the caliber of 82 mm and 120 mm, the SPG (tripod-mounted man-portable 73 mm recoilless gun) and small arms, according to the source.
On Sunday, the Kiev forces shelled the Shirokaya Balka village in the southeastern suburb of Gorlovka using mortars and tanks.
In mid-January, 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 Donbass.
The "silence regime" was introduced from midnight on January 14. However, the militias and the government forces continue accusing each other of violating the ceasefire.
