DPR under Ukrainian fire once again

Residential houses ruined as a result of overnight shelling of settlement Staromikhailovka (suburb of Donetsk – DNA), July 20115

Spartak settlement near Donetsk airport and Staromikhailovka in the west were under Ukrainian fire on Friday according to reports of a source at the military authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR).

“At night, the Ukrainian military for three times opened fire from IFVs on the northern and western suburbs of Donetsk,” the source told the Donetsk News Agency.

Cited venues were under fire from grenade launchers and from small arms.

Fortunately, no fatalities were reported.

Since last month, violence coming from Kiev’s Forces has increased according to the DPR Defense Ministry, especially in the northern and western outskirts of Donetsk and on the city suburbs, where the number of shelling attacks has increased dramatically.

This is clearly a severe violation from Kiev to the arrangements established by the Trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine comprising senior representatives from Russia, Ukraine and the European security watchdog OSCE made on February 12, 2015, where the leaders of the Normandy Four, namely Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine signed a 13-point Package of Measures to fulfill the September 2014 Minsk agreements.
