MOSCOW, June 14. /TASS/. The situation with the intensified shelling of Donetsk by Ukraine forces is "out of any limits" and constitutes a military operation against civilians, Russian Presidential Aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters Tuesday.
"Horrible things are happening. Intensive shellings of civilian areas in Donetsk. This is out of any limits, this is simply a military operation against peaceful civilian population," Ushakov said.
He emphasized that Ukrainian forces "target even the districts of Donetsk that they have never targeted before during all eight years since 2014."
He also noted that there has been no progress in the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine after Moscow handed over the draft agreements to Kiev.
"On April 15, we handed over our amended draft, which remains the last, because there was no reaction. Maybe, there were some unofficial phone contacts, not at the level of delegations but at the level of individual representatives, and then it went completely silent," Ushakov said.
