DONETSK (Sputnik) – There is no immediate information on damages or casualties, according to the source.
"At about 23:00 [20:00 GMT] Ukrainian servicemen started shelling the Trudovskiye settlement and the Alexandrovka settlement," a source in the security services of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) told the Donetsk News Agency on Wednesday.
Kiev launched a special military operation in Ukraine’s southeastern Donetsk and Lugansk regions in April 2014, after local residents refused to recognize the new Ukrainian authorities, which came to power as a result of a coup.
In February 2015, a peace agreement was signed between the two sides in the Belarusian capital, Minsk. The agreement has several provisions, including a full ceasefire, a weapons withdrawal from the line of contact in eastern Ukraine, and an all-for-all prisoner exchange.
Despite the Minsk peace deal, sporadic shelling continues in Ukraine’s southeast.
