According to the law enforcement agencies of the so-proclaimed DPR (Donetsk People’s Republic), northern areas of Donetsk were under attack of the Ukrainian army last night.

For several hours, starting at 9:30 pm, the village of Spartak, its industrial zone, and later the Volvo Center areas were under the Ukrainian Armed Forces fire.

This, as today a new stage of the weaponry withdrawal took place in DPR according to the measures of the Minsk agreements implemented on February 12th this same year.

Minsk agreements regarding weaponry withdrawal refer to tanks and artillery pieces with under 100 mm caliber and mortars with caliber up to 120 mm.

According to the source, 120 mm mortars, small arms and automatic grenade launchers were used for the attacks last night.

Representatives of DPR claim that for this reason a trustable ceasefire in the region can’t be held.
