MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. The Ukrainian army shelled communities in the northern suburb of Donetsk at night, a source in the defense ministry of Ukraine's self-proclaimed Donetsk republic (DPR) said on Tuesday.
"Ukrainian army units shelled the villages of Zhabichevo and Spartak at night," the source told the Donetsk News Agency.
According to the source, the Ukrainian army fired 82 mm mortars, grenade launchers and small arms from its positions in the village of Peski and the Butovskaya coalmine.
The DPR Defense Ministry reported on Monday that the Ukrainian army had shelled the territory of the Donetsk People's Republic near the engagement line 882 times over the past week, using the armaments prohibited by the Minsk-2 accords on the settlement of the armed conflict in east Ukraine.
A meeting of the Contact Group on the settlement of the crisis in east Ukraine agreed on January 13 to introduce a ceasefire regime from 00:00 Moscow time on January 14. However, the Donetsk militia and the Ukrainian army continue accusing each other of breaching the truce.
