MOSCOW, March 23. /TASS/. The Ukrainian armed forces have shelled the territory of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic more than 300 times over the past 24 hours, the DPR Defense Ministry told Donetsk News Agency on Wednesday.
"Over the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian army has shelled the republic’s territory 335 times," a source in the ministry said.
According to him, the Ukrainian military fired 117 120-mm and 82-mm mortar shells. It also used tanks, armored infantry carriers, various types of grenade launchers and small arms.
The DPR Defense Ministry noted that the most intense fire fell on Zaitsevo village near Gorlovka, the cities of Yasinovataya, Dokuchaevsk, the villages of Zhabichevo and Vesyoloye close to Donetsk airport, the territory of the airport and Volvo Center as well as Petrovsky district of Donetsk, the villages of Kominternovo and Staromaryevka in the south of the Donbass region.
At a meeting of the Contact Group on settlement in eastern Ukraine on January 13, the parties took a decision to impose the "silence regime." However, both self-defense forces and the Ukrainian military continue to accuse each other of failing to honor the ceasefire.
