DONETSK, November 11. /TASS/. More than 5,000 episodes of shelling by Ukrainian troops were reported in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in the past week, Eduard Basurin, a spokesman for the DPR operations command, said on Friday.
"During the past week, a total of 5,118 ceasefire violations by Ukrainian troops were reported, including 3,244 episodes with the use of artillery systems, tanks and mortars," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.
In all, according to Basurin, 23 settlements in the Donetsk People’s Republic came under shelling.
On August 26, the parties to the Contact Group for settling the armed civil conflict in eastern Ukraine made yet another, ninth, attempt to attain ceasefire. The agreement they reached suggests the ceasefire takes effect as of September 1. However the security situation in Donbass has not visibly improved, with the parties continuing to exchange accusations of ceasefire violations.
