DONETSK, December 2. /TASS/. A Ukrainian sniper wounded a civilian in the village of Zaitsevo near Gorlovka in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), the head of the local administration said on Friday.
"At about 6pm local time, a 40-year-old man was wounded by a Ukrainian sniper in the village of Zaitsevo," the Donetsk News Agency quoted Ivan Prikhodko as saying. The man was taken to a hospital.
Earlier in the day, spokesman for the DPR operational command Eduard Basurin said that four civilians were wounded in the DPR as result of shelling by Ukrainian troops over the past week. He said that more than 28,000 ceasefire violations by Ukrainian troops were reported over that period.
On August 26, the parties to the Contact Group for settling the armed civil conflict in eastern Ukraine made the 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.
