Ukraine concerned about increasing number of attacks and provocations by militants


The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has reported an increasing number of attacks and provocations by illegal armed groups, including using Grad multiple rocket launchers, artillery and mortars, and sees such actions as an intentional violation of the Minsk agreements.
The press service of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said this in a statement on Saturday.
“The number of attacks and provocations by illegal armed groups in Donbas has significantly increased in recent times. Thirteen cases of such shelling were recorded on January 2 alone near the settlements of Debaltseve, Hnutove, Novohryhorivka, Troitske, Chornukhyne, Mayorsk, Krymske and the Donetsk airport. Of particular concern is the fact that militants again started to use BM-21 Grad multiple rocket launchers, artillery and mortars,” reads the statement.
The Foreign Ministry sees these actions as a deliberate violation of the Minsk agreements and attempts to endanger the efforts being exerted today by Ukraine and its international partners for the implementation of the peace plan of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
