It’s been a long time since such a heavy shelling of DPR. This is one of the biggest Ukrainian army provocations in the past several months. It has put us yesterday one step away from renewal of a full-scale war.
Noting this, Pushilin has called the guarantor countries of the peaceful agreements to urgently intervene in the situation.
I once again appeal to the leaders of the Normandy format to immediately intervene, else the situation will be brought to a full-scale war.
We have already filed the protocols with violations to the Joint Center for Ceasefire Control and Coordination and to the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission. More than that, I have a meeting today with the local OSCE mission, where this question will also be discussed.
Tonight the punitive forces have heavily shelled the capital of Donetsk People’s Republic. Other cities and villages along all of the contact line came under fire of Kiev’s militants as well. Currently two people are confirmed dead, at least six are injured.
