DONETSK, July 14. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Armed Forces have fired 45 projectiles at the town of Yasinovataya controlled by the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) on Wednesday night, a source with the DPR defense agencies told Donetsk news agency.
"Between 21.30 and 23.10 Moscow Standard Time (18.30-20.10 GMT) 45 artillery shells were fired from positions of Ukrainian troops, in particular six shells of 152mm caliber and 39 shells of 122mm caliber," he said.
The village of Sakhanka in the Novoazov region in south of DPR came under shelling as well when ten shots from a tank were delivered on it.
There were no immediate reports on casualties and destruction.
Earlier, the DPR said that Ukrainian military opened fire 324 times on the DPR along the contact line, killing a civilian and wounding four more people.
Members of the Contact Group seeking to resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine agreed to observe the so-called Orthodox Easter ceasefire starting at midnight on April 30. The agreement was the eighth since autumn 2014. However, the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk and Kiev forces continue to accuse each other of violating the ceasefire in Donbass.
Minsk provisions backed by leaders of the "Normandy Four" group assembling Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France in the Belarussian capital in February 2015 envisaged a ceasefire between Ukrainian forces and eastern region people’s militias starting that month. A 13-point package sought withdrawal of heavy weapons from a line disengaging Kiev troops and militias alongside measures for a long-term political settlement in Donbass.
