Kiev Shells Donetsk Overnight After Minsk Talks Stall, 14 Civilians Injured
Violence in eastern Ukraine surged in January, with fighting in the Donetsk Region intensifying. Shelling attacks in the region over the past few weeks resulted in the deaths of dozens of civilians.

On January 31, the latest round of trilateral reconciliation talks on Ukraine took place in Minsk, Belarus, but did not yield any results. Following the failed talks, Kiev authorities and Ukraine’s breakaway republics again blamed each other for escalating the crisis.

Earlier in the month, Moscow said the recent surge in violence in eastern Ukraine confirms that Kiev is looking to find a way out the Ukraine crisis with a military solution.
