Donbass shelling activation may be connected with the recent statement of the US State Department’s special ambassador, Kurt Volker concerning the resolution on UN mission in Donbass. Such point of view was expressed by the DPR JCCC center head, Ruslan Yakubov.
“One of the possible reasons of situation’s aggravation – is discontent of the terrorist battalions with Volker, who called on Kiev not to put forward a competing with the Russian resolution on the UN mission,” said Yakubov.
It should be underlined that situation in Donetsk and its vicinities has considerably aggravated. Ukrainian gunmen committed massive heavy artillery hits, including shelling with MRLS, at the Kievsky district of Donetsk and its northern suburbs. As a result of shelling, a civilian man was wounded; multiple damage of residential area and city’s infrastructure was recorded.
