VIENNA, April 28. /TASS /. The Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Ukraine has confirmed the fire attack at the village of Elenovka in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) on April 27, which killed 4 people. According to the mission’s report, the village was shelled from the west-south-west direction, most likely, from 122-mm artillery pieces.
The mission analyzed a total of seven craters in the village located just 4 kilometers away from the contact line. All shells were fired from the same direction.
"The head of a morgue in Donetsk city told the SMM that they had received four bodies from Olenivka (Elenovka) that day, three men and one woman. A hospital in the city reported that one man had been admitted with shrapnel injuries," the mission’s report said.
The mission reported citing DPR representatives that the shelling occurred at about 3 a.m. on April 27. DPR Defense Ministry spokesman Eduard Basurin earlier said that five civilians had been killed in the attack.
At a meeting of the Contact Group on the settlement in eastern Ukraine on January 13, the parties reached an agreement on another ceasefire. However, both self-defense forces and the Ukrainian army continue to accuse each other of violating the truce.
