"In the morning people were picking up water at a pumping station located near the Ukrainian checkpoint in the southeastern part of the city. The DPR terrorists who have not forgiven the locals for their loyalty to the Ukrainian government do not allow citizens to return to peaceful life. Today they fired seven shells at residential quarters, killing three civilians and one serviceman. Another seven people were injured. In addition, communications and houses along the street were seriously damaged," the statement reads.
According to the emergency services and eye witnesses, the shells came from Donetsk, from the territory controlled by the militants.
Shelling also continues in Donetsk on Monday.
