DONETSK, May 18. /TASS/. The Kiev government troops have been shelling northern outskirts of the eastern city of Donetsk since Thursday evening, a military source in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said.
"Since 21:00, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been shelling the Spartak neighborhood. More than 30 artillery shells of 122-mm caliber, as well as 82-mm and 120-mm mortar rounds have been fired," the source was quoted as saying by the Donetsk News Agency.
The Kiev government’s troops have been regularly shelling the self-proclaimed republics in eastern Ukraine despite the so-called Easter Ceasefire that was agreed by the Contact Group on Ukrainian reconciliation in Minsk and was to go into effect on April 13.
