DONETSK, February 19. /TASS/. Residents of the Kominternovo settlement in south of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) remain without electricity after a night shelling from positions of the Ukrainian military, a local official said on Sunday.
"Shelling was at night. Kominternovo is in blackout. Repairing continues," the Donetsk News Agency quoted head of the Novoazov district Anatoly Yanovsky.
Authorities in Yasinovataya reported damaged houses.
The situation along the line of engagement in the Donbass region deteriorated dramatically in late January. On February 1, the Contact Group on the settlement in eastern Ukraine demanded following meeting in Minsk an end to hostilities in the Donbass region and withdrawal of all weapons and equipment along the entire engagement line to storage sites by February 5. However, the Ukrainian armed forces have failed to comply with the provisions of this statement.
On Wednesday, February 15, members of the Contact Group again agreed on withdrawing all weapons prohibited under the Minsk agreements from the line of engagement in Donbass by February 20.
