DONETSK, July 11. /TASS/. Ukrainian forces fired 104 shells at Donetsk, Gorlovka, Yasinovataya and settlements in the south of the south-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) over the last 24 hours, DPR security agencies said on Monday.
"From 7:30pm (on Sunday) to 3:00am (on Monday) Ukrainian forces shelled the settlement of Trudovskiye in the west of Donetsk; the settlement of Spartak; territory of the airport; settlements of Zaytsevo, Ozeryanovka, Shirokaya and Zheleznaya Balka; Gagarin mine near Gorlovka; settlements of Kominternovo, Sakhanka and Leninskoye in the Novoazovsky district," Donetsk News Agency quoted DPR security agencies as saying.
They added that Kiev forces opened fire from settlements of Maryinka, Shirokino, Vodyanoye, Avdeyevka, Opytnoye, Artemovo, Talakovka, Verkhnetoretskoye, Kamenka and Zhovanka.
Information about injuries and damages is being verified.
The participants of the Contact Group on settling the situation in east Ukraine agreed on observing 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.
Ceasefire is envisaged by the Minsk accords signed on 12 February 2015, after negotiations in the so-called "Normandy format" in the Belarusian capital Minsk, bringing together Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko. The package of measures also envisages weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local election in Donbass, constitutional reform in Ukraine and establishing working sub-groups on security, political, economy and humanitarian components of the Minsk accords.
