MOSCOW, June 17. /TASS/. Ukrainian forces have fired 28 shells at the outskirts of Donetsk at the evening on Thursday’s evening and in the small hours of Friday, a source in law enforcement agencies of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) told Donetsk News Agency.
"The Ukrainian side shelled the territory of former Donetsk airport, Volvo Center and Staromikhaylovka from 9:20pm until 11:50pm," the source said adding that "Ukrainian forces fired 28 shells of 82mm caliber in total."
According to the source, Kiev forces opened fire from their positions in settlements of Krasnogorovka, Opytnoye and Peski.
On Thursday Ukrainian forces shelled DPR territory almost 400 times along the contact line.
The participants of the Contact Group on settling the situation in east Ukraine agreed on observing Easter ceasefire starting from April 30. However, the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk republics (DPR and LPR) and Kiev forces continue accusing each other of violating the ceasefire regime in Donbass.
