According to the latest update, the bandits of the pro-Russian illegal armed groups have shelled Vodiane, located in the so-called "gray zone" near Mariupol today, Dec. 25 at about 12 p.m.
The criminals have employed 82-mm mortars from the part of Shyrokyne village controlled by them to carry out the strike. A total of five mines have exploded in Vodiane and its suburbs. The information about casualties among the local residents is currently specified.
"Thus, the pro-Russian hybrid gangs have once again endangered lives of civilians and once again tried to put blame for committing this crime on ATO forces. The position of the ATO command remains unchanged. According to the Minsk agreements, the Ukrainian detachments involved in the anti-terrorist operation must observe "complete cease-fire" and are strictly complying with this requirement. In turn, the gangs of the Russian-terrorist forces have been systematically violating all accords on the peaceful settlement of the conflict over the last three days. They commit new provocations against the ATO forces daily," the press center stressed.
