KIEV, August 29. /TASS/. The monitors of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine have declined to register the aftermath of the overnight artillery shelling of Yasinovataya, to the north of Donetsk, the operative command of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said on Monday.
"The OSCE monitors have refused to register the consequences of the overnight artillery shelling of Yasinovataya’s residential quarters carried out by the Ukrainian Armed Forces explaining it away as coming from poor security in the area," a representative of the command told the Donetsk News Agency.
The operative command said the OSCE SMM staff members left the scene of the shelling after briefly assessing the damage to private houses. The Russian officers of the SMM and the Joint Center for Ceasefire Control and Coordination later started investigating the incident.
DPR’s positions in the industrial area near Yasinovataya are currently under fire, a correspondent of the Donetsk News Agency reported. The shelling scene can be observed from the area where the inspectors are working.
A representative of the DPR operative command said that the shelling of Yasinovataya’s outskirts was conducted from 122mm-caliber artillery weapons and damaged a three-story house, a gas pipeline and power lines.
